We are Called to Serve HIM in Troy…
and Throughout the WORLD!
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

GLOBAL FOCUS EMPHASIS
In October of 2012 our church family adopted the following resolution that will be guiding us for many years to come when it comes to our participation and intentional focus for Troy and the world!
RESOLUTION FOR GLOBAL FOCUS
AT FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH TROY, ALABAMA
Be it Resolved, the process of Global Focus is two-fold: one, to educate, train, and equip the local church to find and apply their spiritual gift and passion in ministry to the body of Christ. Second, to help guide us in developing a more strategic plan and vision to reach our community and the world with the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Partnering with Global Focus, Inc. will benefit our church in the following ways: it will help us maximize our church’s involvement in ministry and missions, engage our church strategically in ministry endeavors, mobilize our entire congregation toward this end, and help us connect with the generation of today.
Be it Resolved, understanding that God has commanded us to “go into all the world,” the process that Global Focus will help us develop is on that encourages us to recognize and meet the ministry needs within our own congregation, city, and region. Understanding our first call is to help meet the needs here at home, we believe God has placed people in our congregation that can be used by God in implementing God’s will to minister to one another and our community.
Be it Resolved, although we live in marvelous harvest times, there is much more to do. Millions and millions of people have yet to hear the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ. We must not let them perish without an opportunity to hear the message of salvation.
Be it Resolved, the Fellowship of Deacons at First Baptist Church Troy, Alabama believer the local church is God’s primary instrument to fulfill the Great Commission. May these principles enable us to be a more effective instrument for His global cause. May our hearts be aflame with a passion for souls locally and globally.
God bless you as you seek to do your part to reach the world for Jesus!
As of November 2012, we have taken the first step in our partnership with Global Focus, Inc. Over the next several months the foundations will be laid that will help First Baptist reach and achieve the goals and objectives found in this resolution and expressed through the gifts and hearts of the believers in our church.
Future updates will be found on this page as we partner and move forward in this endeavor. Thank you for your continued prayers!
