Imagine Update – January 2016

Great things are happening at First Baptist Carrollton and we are making big strides towards our Imagine goals.

Hearts Transformed

Lives are being changed each week and we are thankful that we get to be a part of it! We’ve used many different programs and activities to reach people with the message of Christ.

  • Our children and student ministries have seen 85 kids accept Christ this year.
  • Our Worship Arts ministry saw six people accept Christ at Hark! and hundreds of people attended the receptions.
  • Our Christmas Store served over 391 families and saw 112 people make a profession of faith.
  • We began the PLACE class to help participants develop their spiritual gifts and use them in significant service for God’s glory.

Homes Transformed

We are continuing to work closely with families to equip them to be the center of spiritual growth in their homes.

  • Our Ignite Your Faith classes have been designed with today’s issues in mind, offering classes on handling finances, bridging the gap between the church and the community, strengthening your spiritual life, and much more.
  • Our Ignite Kids program has been improved and restructured to better meet the needs of the children involved and their families.
  • Our deacons have focused their efforts on ministering to the widows in our church and supporting them faithfully.

Church Transformed

Our church is changing right before our eyes and it is an exciting time to be a part of what is happening at First Baptist Carrollton. There are so many things taking place on our Josey campus, as well as the launch of Church at The Fields.

  • Last year, we baptized 85 people and we have seen almost 200 people baptized since the Imagine campaign launched.
  • We passed out over 4,000 flyers to surrounding neighborhoods to promote the opening of the new building.
  • We have over 150 people preparing to transition to The Fields and launch Church at The Fields on Easter Sunday.

World Transformed

Over the past three years, we have given more than $300,000 to build a school to care for those living in the area God has assigned us. Although  many we work with have never heard about Jesus Christ, we believe that one day this will be a place where God’s name will be made known.   

  • Members of our team traveled this past summer to the grand opening of the school.
  • We’ve provided support and resources for two people to relocate into a free country.
  • And, to help support missions all over the world, we have given over $142,000 to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.
