Amelia Baptist Missions

Foreign and Domestic Missions is a vital part of the ongoing effort at Amelia Baptist Church to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ to others who do not know Him as personal Savior.

For example, we reach out to people in the Amelia Island, FL community through the Salvation Army Hope House ministry, feeding the less fortunate, and the Set Free by the Sea ministry, as they work with alcoholics and drug addicts to help them find meaningful answers to their problems.   We also support The Nest, A Women’s Center‘s efforts to save the lives of the unborn and minister to the needs of their pregnant mothers.

We also travel to foreign countries like Port Au Prince, Haiti, where we are doing whatever we can to assist Sherrie Fausey at the Christian Light School.

We regularly update this page with the monthly mission focus and the next upcoming mission opportunity. If you feel led to participate in one of these missions, or give so that others may go on these missions, we greatly appreciate it.

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering 2018

Every Church. Every Nation.
It’s more than a catch phrase. It’s at the core of what we do. We believe every church—and every church member—has a critical role to play in bringing the gospel to the world. Our church’s participation in the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is a key part of that.

Your Gifts Transform Lives
Because you give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, IMB missionaries can take the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation.

The Story of Lottie Moon
In the 1800s, a missionary named Lottie Moon wrote letters from China urging American churches to fund more overseas workers. After Lottie’s death on the mission field, an offering was started in her name. The offering was established to empower international missions efforts for Southern Baptists.

Amelia Baptist Church’s 2018 goal for the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is $24,000.
