Our Mission

At the First Baptist Church of Okemos, our mission is to create a strong and compassionate community that fosters spiritual growth and nurtures the faith of our members. Through our various ministry projects and initiatives, we aim to make a positive difference in the lives of people belonging to different walks of life. Our focus is on serving as a source of support, encouragement, and empowerment to individuals and families in Okemos and the surrounding areas.

Ministry Projects

1. Community Outreach

Under our Community Outreach ministry, we have several programs and initiatives targeted towards reaching out to those in need. Our community food pantry provides essential food items to individuals and families facing financial difficulties. We also organize regular community meals to foster a sense of togetherness and provide a warm meal to those who may not have access to one.

Additionally, we have partnered with local schools and shelters to provide academic support and mentorship to children and young adults. Through our counseling services, we offer guidance and emotional support to individuals dealing with personal challenges.

2. Youth Empowerment

The Youth Empowerment ministry aims to empower and guide young minds on their spiritual journey. We provide a safe and nurturing environment where young individuals can explore their faith, ask questions, and seek guidance. Our youth group engages in various activities such as Bible study sessions, community service projects, and recreational outings to foster fellowship and personal growth.

3. Family Enrichment

We understand the importance of strong and healthy families in creating a harmonious society. Our Family Enrichment ministry organizes workshops, seminars, and support groups for couples, parents, and individuals navigating through the challenges of family life. We provide resources and support to strengthen relationships, promote healthy communication, and offer guidance on parenting and marriage.

4. Worship and Celebration

Worship and Celebration form an integral part of our church life. We offer diverse worship services catering to people of different ages, backgrounds, and preferences. Our music ministry spreads joy and praise through vibrant choir performances, instrumental ensembles, and congregational singing. We believe in celebrating the love and grace of God through joyful worship, prayer, and reflection.

Budget Allocation

As a responsible organization, we understand the importance of financial transparency. We ensure that our budget allocation is in line with our ministry objectives and community needs. The majority of our budget is dedicated to community outreach projects, including the provision of food, emergency assistance, and community events like holiday celebrations and summer programs for children.

Moreover, we allocate a portion of our budget to support our youth empowerment programs, including resources for mentorship, activities, and spiritual development. Family enrichment initiatives receive funding for hosting workshops, providing counseling services, and organizing events that promote family unity and wellbeing.

Our worship and celebration ministry, which includes maintenance of our worship facilities, supporting our music ministry, and organizing spiritual retreats and conferences, is allocated a portion of the budget as well. We believe in investing in resources that enhance the worship experience and create a conducive atmosphere for spiritual growth.
