Mission & Vision Statement
“Sharing Jesus, serving Him and strengthening Christians
with excellence for the glory of God”
If a ministry is going to have direction, structure, aligned activities, and controls, it must have a Mission Statement that will allow it to pursue its purpose efficiently and effectively. A Mission Statement succinctly captures God's desire for our church. It clearly articulates why First Baptist Church of Sevierville exists. The Mission Statement defines what it means for FBC to be fruitful, to produce the outcomes that will please God.
Develop an Acts 1:8 culture, maximize the power of prayer, make disciples of every member, identify and develop leaders, create connections with excellence for the glory of God.
