Ministry Opportunities

First Baptist Church has always been a church with a heart for missions and ministry. Our mission endeavors begin within our walls and reach out to all of God’s creation. We have a strong relationship with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship on a state and national level. We also partner with the Hamilton County Baptist Association and the Southern Baptist Convention as well as other various local agencies and ministries.

More significantly, perhaps, members of First Baptist have consistently provided personal, hands-on assistance to mission causes at home and away.  Individuals and groups have volunteered their time and energy to share Christ’s love in ministry actions in Chattanooga, various locations in Tennessee, in other states and in foreign countries.

The following pages serve a two-fold purpose: 1) to inform church members of some of the ways in which our family of faith is involved in local ministries and 2) to provide information regarding these ministries so that other individuals and groups may become involved.

For more information on a certain ministry, please call or email the listed contact person.
