"But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8
Our missions opportunities are both local and global. In fact, we are always on mission right here in our community and we are always striving to fulfill the Great Commission and live out the Great Commandment. This page provides resources and information about opportunities for both local and global missions through FBC Mount Sterling.
Support Missions by giving toward our series of international trips to Mongolia.
Missions through Small Groups
Each of our small groups are challenged to develop and implement a small group project each year. Through small groups we have sponsored some of our very own young adults to serve on short-term mission trips. We have built a house through Habitat for Humanity. We provided the hardware for 160 beds to be constructed for children across 30 counties throughout Eastern Kentucky through the Build-A-Bed Project. If you are interested in missions, your first step is to become involved in a small group!
Missions through Giving
Our church is committed to giving financially to support missions. We give a portion of our weekly tithes and offerings to the Cooperative Program of the SBC. Through the Cooperative Program we support thousands of missionaries around the world. We also support the Eliza Broadus Missions Offering, Annie Armstrong Missions Offering, and the Lottie Moon Missions Offering. Through our Small Groups, we also support numerous mission projects. Your regular giving goes to support missions in a major way!

Missions through "Come and See" and "Go and Tell"
Missions is not an isolated ministry of our church, but it is woven throughout all we do. Instead of thinking of missions as "an offering" or an "overseas trip," think of it as an ongoing effort to help others see and experience the Kingdom of God.
"Come and See"
One side of the evangelism coin is to invite others to "come and see." We will offer numerous opportunities for you to invite others to "come and see" the wonderful things that Christ is doing through our church. We have developed "You're Invited" cards that are available in the lobby to assist you in inviting others.
"Go and Tell"
The other side of the evangelism coin is to share with others what God has done in your life. This page offers resources to help you develop your personal testimony (i.e. Everyone Has a Story) and also provides a strategy for personal evangelism (i.e. The SHARE Challenge).
Missions through Personal Evangelism
The SHARE Challenge is a five-step evangelism strategy and spells out the word SHARE.
Show others your faith in Christ through both words and actions.
Help others through meeting their needs.
Ask others to attend a weekend worship service or an outreach event with you.
Reveal why and how you became a Christian.
Extend an invitation for your friend to personally accept Christ.
