The mission of the First Baptist Church of Bryson City is
to make disciples through worship, welcome, and witness.
(Worshiping God, Welcoming Others, Witnessing to the World)
Worship is ascribing worth to God in all we do or say. The goal of living is
to worship God. We consider worship to involve the church body meeting with
Holy God through elements such as: giving, singing, praying, and preaching.
Welcome encourages people’s sensitivity to the presence and work of the
Spirit of the Lord in their lives and in the hearts of believers. The church
welcomes all who will come, for we believe that Christ died for all. Welcome
develops a sense of belonging as persons share time at every opportunity with
attitudes of friendship and acceptance.
Witness is sharing with others the love of God in all we do or say. It is
cultivating relationships with people through conversation and hospitality for the
purpose of leading them to decide for Christ. We extend witness to our families,
friends, and community, and through mission-giving
and going unto all the world
