Missions Heritage

First Baptist has been blessed by over 65 years of affecting the world for Christ. Few churches possess the rich missions history enjoyed by our fellowship. 204 different individuals from FBCLJ have made 108 mission trips to 27 countries. As indicated on this page (please see the 1987-2012 missions history below), our church family is committed to "going and doing" and fulfilling the commission of our Lord Jesus! The list below does not include the countless youth mission trips and various other local mission projects that have been held during the last 65 years, nor does it include trips conducted by our satellite congregation, The Lighthouse.
