Missions on the local level give "every day" Christians an opportunity to reach out to those in need in the name and power of Jesus Christ. Our church supports a number of established ministries in the Rockford area, and we look for new ways to "come alongside" them to further the kingdom of God. Find out more about the various Community Outreach efforts TBC Rockford is involved.
US / WORLD
The Great Commission Jesus gave to His followers is to go into all the world and make disciples (Matthew 28:19-20). At TBC Rockford, we believe every Christian has a responsibility to be a part of God's disciple-making work around the world. Prayer, personal encouragement, and financial support are ways we can partner with others in missions. At TBC Rockford, we seek to maintain long-term relationships with those He calls out from among us and with missionaries from the Converge [formerly known as the Baptist General Conference].
God has given us the charge as His children to reach those who don't know about the Good News of His Son – Jesus Christ. Many of those people are around the world, but just as many are right across the street - in our neighborhood. We at TBC Rockford have a great desire to see our neighbors come to know the Lord. We are always looking for new ways in which we can meet the needs of our neighbors.
