Kernville First Baptist Church is committed to advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community and around the world.  In obedience to the great command (Love God and love others) and the the Great Commission (go and make disciples of every nation), our missions philosophy is that every believer should be involving in:
  • Giving– As a southern Baptist Church, we  invest in sending and supporting missionaries around the world through the International Mission Board and the North American Mission Board.  But we are also involved with  individual missionaries outside the SBC.  In recent years we have partnered with missionaries to Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Mexico, Australia, and Haiti. 
  • Praying– Each year, we invite numerous missionaries to come and share their ministries in our worship services.  Our goal is to support some financially, but support all through prayer.  Every missionary endeavor we undertake or partner with is bathed in prayer, because we believe that God answers our prayers and does incredible things when His people pray.
  • Going– In recent years, we have been involved in missions projects in Haiti and doing Migrant outreach to workers in California’s San Joaquin valley.  We want everyone to have a chance to go and participate in mission locally and internationally.  As we build relationships and partnerships on the mission field, we hope to expand our efforts, and have further opportunities to go and see what God is doing around the world. 
Our mission vision and efforts are facilitated by our Outreach, Missions, and Evangelism Team (OMET), which is made up of people in our church who have a heart for missions and led by one of our deacons.
