ABOUT THE MISSION
The Mission is a place where local churches can come together to serve and share the Gospel. Our goals are as follows:
- To connect people with Jesus: Our number one priority is to let people know about how they can have a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ
- To connect people with the local church: We also want to connect people to a local church so they can grow in their relationship with Jesus. We want to connect them with our Main Street Baptist Church, with a serving church, or with another church in the area where they feel comfortable.
- To fulfill Matthew 25: In Matthew 25, Jesus exhorts us to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked, invited in the stranger, look after the sick, and visit the prisoner. He says, “Whatever you have done to the least of these, you have done to me.”
- To help people get up and walk (Acts 3:1-10): We want to do more than merely feed people and send them on their way. We want to help them walk. We want to invest in people. We want to help them become the people God wants them to be.
GET INVOLVED AT THE MISSION:
Whether individually or as a church, we want to partner with you! Please pray about how you can get more involved with one of the following ministries.
Internship program: Each year, the Mission selects 2 interns to work at the Mission for 1 year. These interns work part-time at the Mission where they learn job skills for the work force and gain experience to put on their resume. They also receive counseling and job training skills once a month. Please consider giving financially to this program. It is our best program to help get people off the street and back to work.
Community Resourse Day: Every Thursday from 10 to 12, individuals from local churches spend time counseling and praying 1 on 1 with those in need of help. We help individuals make phone calls, find resources, and gain a little hope on this day. This is a great way to make a huge impact in someone’s life.
Meal: A meal is served every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10am. A devotion is also given at this time. Come help prepare, serve, give a devotion, or clean up.
Clothes Closet: Our clothes closet is open M-W-F from 10-12. Donations are welcome, as well as help sorting the clothes.
Emergency Food and Hygiene: Individuals can receive emergency food and hygiene once a month. All food and hygiene donations are greatly appreciated.
Food Bank: The second Thursday and following Friday of each month we need assistance packing and distributing food boxes from the Food Bank of Central Louisiana.
Giving: Monetary donations can be given to Main Street Baptist Mission, 901 Main St., Pineville, LA 71360
