Our Missions ministries seek to glorify God through obedience to the Great Commission. We use Acts 1:8 as our direction: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and the ends of the earth.” We seek to reach other for Christ by connecting with people and meeting needs locally, nationally, and internationally through individual, team, family, and church-wide efforts.
Our Next Generation Ministry comes alongside adults with children (newborn to age 25) to help them guide and grow the next generation, instilling godly values and principles in the lives of preschoolers, children, middle and high school students, and young adults. First Baptist Maryville is committed to partnering with every parent in order to equip every child for the purpose of impacting our culture.

Men's, women's, and coed programs are offered.
