Missions & Outreach

” oh give thanks to the lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples”   – psalms 105:1

What is our Missions & Outreach team all about?

Our desire is for the people of First Open Bible to restore hope and demonstrate compassion for the least and the lost in order to bring them one step closer to Christ. 

We will work to provide multiple opportunities to establish relationships with the unsaved, the unchurched, and the poor and needy both here on our campus and by going out to our neighborhood and to the nations.
