GO THEREFORE AND MAKE DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS
Making disciples of Jesus is a command found in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). The importance of this verse lies in sharing the love and grace of Jesus Christ with anyone willing to hear it. This requires a willingness to be on mission, but this should not be carried out by the individual alone. Instead, it should be carried out as a church. That is why we've incorporated this imperative into one of our core values: On Mission Together. In this effort, we commit to serving the Lord by taking the message of Jesus across the streets in our local community, across the states in our country, and across the seas throughout the world.
WHERE ARE WE ON MISSION
Across the Streets
Generosity Jonesboro was created in 2020 to benefit the residents of Northeast Arkansas during the worldwide pandemic. Since it's start, over 2,500 meals have been given to the local community, over 300 backpacks have been given to students, a vehicle has been donated to a family in need, and numerous individuals have heard of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Across the States
Through our partnership with the Arkansas Baptist State Convention and the North American Mission Board (NAMB), Nettleton Baptist has partnered with several ministries across the country to provide disaster relief from hurricanes and other natural disasters and traveled to several states for local missions work for communities and churches.
Across the Seas
We are proud to partner with the International Mission Board (IMB) who have graciously aided us in training and direction as we take the Gospel across the world into various locations, such as South Asia, Africa, Central and South America.
