Missions

GO, TELL, SHOW … AROUND THE WORLD

First Free partners with several dozen career missionaries both in the U.S. and globally. Our Global Outreach Team and our missionaries focus on equipping national leaders, aiding them to minister more effectively in their own cultures. Their primary goal is to see people reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit …” —Matthew 28:19

Our three pillars

Making disciples of all nations

We emphasize three “pillar” ministries to the missionaries we support:
  • Evangelism
  • Church planting
  • Biblical/theological training
Of those pillars, evangelism is paramount, and it is the primary ministry focus for many of our missionaries. See below for more about each pillars.
Culture

EVANGELISM

Sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who haven’t yet heard, and those who have heard but have not yet responded. This is paramount, and the primary ministry focus for many of our missionaries.

Beliefs

CHURCH PLANTING

Encouraging, supporting and helping to enable healthy churches to reproduce themselves, thus multiplying the church’s effect in spreading the gospel and building the saints.

Staff

BIBLICAL/THEOLOGICAL TRAINING
