Chin Baptist Church Commissioning

Commissioning the Chin Baptist Church
A Heart For Our City  
Since 1889, FBCOKC has focused on church planting, birthing more than 105 congregations across our state. Thatís more than one per year! But, despite such numbers, the percentage of unchurched in our population continues to grow, and we have reclaimed church planting as a major priority.

FBCOKCís church-planting strategy also focuses on giving people of diverse languages and cultures the opportunity to worship in their own languages while sharing a sense of community.

Through our efforts since 2005, six churches related to FBCOKC have sprouted and begun to grow:
  • Convergence, which meets at FBCOKC, connects with the arts community and those on the social edges of our city. Convergence is led by pastor Scott Scrivner.
  • The newest addition to our global-local endeavor is the Sudanese Christian Fellowship, who joined us in May 2010. They study and worship in Arabic but are also comfortable with English. They come from the Nuba Mountains of Sudan, a place that has witnessed profound conflict and religious persecution. They are led by Andrew Konda.

So, it's clear that church planting is alive and well at First Baptist Church. And this is only the beginning. As these new churches find their footing, we will aggressively explore additional opportunities for starting churches that can help effectively reach our community and minister to specific needs.
