We are a church that is called to reach all people with the Gospel of Christ by partnering with ministries in Madison county, in our nation, and around the world. As a church, we seek to equip and send people of all ages to participate in God’s call to make disciples. Our desire is to put God first in the heart of Madison and to make Him known throughout the world.



Due to the COVID-19 virus, FBC Madison has decided not to proceed with any previously scheduled mission journeys for the remainder of 2020. We hope to resume mission travel in 2021. We will update as we know more. Please continue to be the hands and feet of Christ to those around you.

Local Partnerships

We are excited about our liaisons for our local partnerships this year. These FBC Members have a wealth of knowledge about each of our partnerships as they have already been serving with these ministries. Our liaisons will be a great resource for our members. If you have any questions or if you want to find out how to get involved with these local ministries, please contact our liaisons.

Madison County Prayer Walking Ministry

First Baptist Madison started a Prayer Walking Ministry about 12-14 years ago. This ministry is allowing us the opportunity to go into every school in Madison County and pray through the hallways as school is in session. This ministry takes place on the 2nd and 4th weeks of each month and it only takes about 30 minutes at a school. Teachers and students have begun to recognize our volunteers and form a bond. We need more volunteers every month.

Iglesia de Dios Manantial de Vida

As we have traveled abroad to many foreign lands and Spanish speaking countries, it has opened our eyes and hearts to a variety of Spanish speaking churches. With this, the Lord has placed on our hearts a Spanish speaking church in Madison County that we are partnering with for 2020. We are excited to share that Church of God Manantial de Vida will be a new local partnership for First Baptist Madison. Please contact our Missions Office if you are interested in helping start English as a Second Language (ESL) Ministry at this church.

Here is a little information about this congregation:
“Church of God Manantial de Vida welcomes Christians and those who seek to understand Christianity in the Canton area. Our aim is to make contact with and encourage others to join us in our life-enhancing Christian journey.
Church of God Manantial de Vida at Canton, Mississippi is a friendly Christian community where we welcome others to join us in our worship and service to God. Our emphasis is on learning and understanding the Bible and following the example of Jesus and his followers.
The vision of Church of God Manantial de Vida is to make an impact for God, here in Canton, Mississippi by helping people understand the enriching messages of eternal hope given to us by Jesus Christ through His words and deeds. Come just as you are - we'd love to get to know you better.”

It’s the vision of our church and pastor to partner with Hispaniola Mountain Ministries to reach the people of Polo, Dominican Republic. This is a village of nearly 10,000 people. Throughout the year, First Baptist Madison will send mission teams to this community to share the love of Christ. Each mission journey will be diverse and can include mission opportunities in the following areas: Medical, Evangelism, Men’s Sports, Construction, Children VBS, Vision Clinics, Discipleship, Leader Training, and Christmas Meals. We will work with the local church, walk through villages, and share the Good News of Christ in Polo. We are very excited about this partnership and ongoing ministry. Join us in reaching the people of Polo with the love of Christ.


Church Building Project
Goal: $60,000
Rain pelted down on the roof of the small Baptist Church of Polo. It was hard to find a dry spot inside the church, as various leaks found their way from the ceiling to the old green cushions; but the rain did not stop the natives from entering and gathering to hear the Word of the Lord. Currently the building is small and there is not enough room for all the people to have a place to come and participate in worship and teaching. A new building will provide a much larger area, storage space, and rooms for the children to have classes. The land is available for purchase and a construction date is on the calendar.  The church is not comprised of brick and mortar; the church consists of individuals who have placed their faith and trust in Jesus. He is the cornerstone, the foundation. A building provides a place for the family of God to come together, fellowship, and minister to one another.
