Our church’s motto is: “Give Grace. Live Truth. Reflect Jesus.” We’ve adapted the last part of our motto for international missions and modified it to say “Reflecting Jesus to the Nations.” We believe God has a heart for the nations and wants to bless “all the families” of the earth (Gen. 12:3). This blessing can only come through faith in Jesus Christ. (Acts 4:12, Romans 3:21-22, John 14:6)
Here at Faith Bible Church we feel God has called us to be His people and invited us to participate with Him in His mission in a few specific places around the world. We call these places “Strategic Partnerships.”
Throughout the year members of Faith Bible Church travel to our Strategic Partnerships to reflect Jesus to the local populations through venues such as language camps, construction projects, vacation Bible school, medical clinics, evangelism, and compassion ministry. For details on all of our upcoming short-term missions trips, visit faithbibleonline.org/trips.
Our Albanian partnership is centered in the capital city of Tirana. We have joined with a local church which is committed to mobilizing Albanians to take the Gospel to surrounding countries (e.g. Turkey, Macedonia, Kosova, Bosnia). This partnership will also be working with Cru to lead English Language Camps as evangelistic outreaches. We also assist with education, as we have two of our Faith Bible Church members on staff at an international school in Tirana.
The Albania Missions Team will host their 2nd Annual Volleyball Fundraising Tournament May 20th, 2017. Cost is $100 per team (4 person teams). All proceeds go towards supporting our short-term trips to Albania this Summer.
FBC is partnering with Hope4Burundi, a ministry that partners with Homecare Ministries in Burundi and other local Christian leaders to bring restoration and renewed hope to the poorest, most malnourished nation in the world.

We partner with VisionTrust to serve in the village of Cotuí where our current focus in the construction of a new school. Our partnership here presents a variety of opportunities to serve under-privileged children of many ages through VBS, evangelism, and more.

They also reach out to these communities through VBS, men’s & women’s ministry, and construction. We also partner with La Misión, a school in Palencia, to support them in the education of over 175 children.
Republic of Georgia
We are deeply committed to spreading the Gospel and developing the church in the Republic of Georgia. Our current partnership is with East-West Ministries as well as an emerging group of churches and church leaders. We are focusing on pastoral training and care, church planting, and evangelism & outreach. We believe Georgia is strategically located and as the church grows in Georgia it will be a great launching pad into several unreached countries. Our friendships in Georgia run deep and we would love to have you join us on a trip to this beautiful and historically rich nation.
