The purpose of Men's Ministry at First Baptist Church Murphy is to effectively reach, minister to, and activate men. We believe that reaching men is about relationships. We encourage the development of trusting relationships through meaningful shared experiences that may include fellowship, study, and missions participation. We implement cornerstones of men’s ministry:
- Evangelize Men to Salvation (outreach and fellowship)
- Establish Men to Spiritual Maturity (discipleship)
- Equipping Men for Ministry (service within the body of the church)
We believe that the pastor is key in the development and maintenance of an effective ministry to men, and that the ministry should support his overall vision for the church. We feel that the men’s ministry also needs a “champion” – someone who has a passion to see the ministry succeed – as well as the men’s ministry to serve alongside him.
Our desire at First Baptist Church Murphy is to see men and families are reached for Christ. We want to help the men of our church take up the challenge of living a Christ-filled life in all areas of their lives - home, work, and church. Our Men's group focuses on "Ministry To Men."
We also want to enrich the lives of the men of First Baptist Church Murphy by providing them the opportunity to come together to spiritually enrich their minds and souls by sharing the Word of Our Lord in activities such as; monthly prayer breakfast, weekly Bible studies, and projects to assist the community and the church body.
