Missions

Powdersville First Baptist Church’s missions effort is encompassed by the idea behind UN1SON. In short, UN1SON stands for multiple congregations partnering together in unison for the glory of 1 Son (Jesus Christ).

Our congregation partners with other congregations from around the world to fulfill the charge that Jesus gives in Acts 1:8 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.”
