MINISTRIES

XTREME KIDS

Xtreme Kids ministers to children ages birth through 5th grade. Our main purpose is to provide a loving, nurturing, and safe environment in which to teach our children the importance of a personal relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ.   We do this by partnering with parents, family members, and the church body to instill a deep-seated desire to:

  • Love Christ
  • Live for Christ
  • Lead others to Christ

At each stage of a child’s life, we aim to instill an age appropriate understanding of the love of Jesus Christ and what it means to follow Him. Our children are taught the Word of God in a meaningful, kid-friendly, creative and fun way.  This is accomplished through our Nursery Program, Bible Fellowship Classes, Children’s Church, and Team Kid.

We would love for you to join us!

HOW MANY TEACHERS ARE IN EACH CLASSROOM?

Each classroom has two teachers: a lead teacher and an assistant teacher. Faith Baptist Arlington’s Mother’s Day Out is dedicated to providing a child-centered program where Christian values are stressed. Our goal is to share the love of Christ in everything we do. We would love to have you and your family as part of our program!

THE VIVE YOUTH MINISTRY

CONNECTING WITH GOD | CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE

The Vive youth ministry is led by youth pastor Andrew Fortner.  His wife, Kelsey, serves alongside him and ministers to the girls.

GOALS: To seek the lost and equip the found

The Vive student ministry is centered around Psalms 119:154:

“Plead my cause and redeem me; reVIVE me according to your word”

A WORD FROM ANDREW:

Am I sending out the kind of students who will show up to college in a different state, join a church and begin doing the work of gospel ministry there without ever being asked? Am I equipping them or merely just giving them a good time while they are with us? If I have not equipped the students in my ministry to share the gospel, disciple and lead people then I have not fulfilled my calling to them.

  • More life on life

  • Stretch the students spiritually

  • Seek past self (how can we serve more)

  • Students meeting with each other outside of church activities diving deeper into the word

MUSIC MINISTRY

“Sing to him a new song; play skillfully, and shout for joy.” -Psalm 33:3

We worship with our voices, our instruments and our hearts, singing praises to the Lord for His eternal love and grace. From the stage and every single seat, the voices and instruments of Faith Baptist Arlington fill the sanctuary, desiring to honor Him with every note.

Our ministry of worship is built on a number of foundational truths and strategies:

1. We are created to worship – to have intimate fellowship with God.
2. As we worship we truly experience the presence of God.
3. Our goal is to lead those who are part of our community at Faith Baptist Church to understand the joy of meaningful worship, and to ignite a passion for the presence of God.

Our ministry of worship is characterized by worship-leading team members. These people are diverse in function and style, but share common vision and purpose. Everyone who considers Faith Baptist Arlington home is invited to explore the possibility of becoming a part of one of our teams. Contact us for additional information about how you can become a part of a worship-leading team.

MISSIONS

PURPOSE OF MISSIONS:

Missions exist to bring Glory to God. At Faith Baptist Arlington, it is our desire to fulfill God’s commission to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:18-20).

Making disciples is the imperative, and we focus on working that out in three ways:
1. Going – we exist as a people to GO and make disciples
2. Baptizing – we exist to baptize regenerated believers into the fellowship
3. Teaching – we exist to teach new followers ALL that we have been taught and ALL that we are continuing to learn

In our “going” we utilize Acts chapter 1 verse 8. Jesus describes geographical criteria for WHERE to make disciples.
1. Jerusalem
2. Judea and Samaria
3. The Uttermost parts

As a church, when we are seeking to fulfill Jesus’ geographical command, we want to see every area affecting the others. When we engage in local missions we want to see God cause an opportunity for us in other ways. While we travel to the uttermost, we long to see God open doors in our local community to engage in similar ministry. We do not believe Jesus gave different geographical locations to be separate circles, but three circles of disciple-making that intertwine and affect each other.

**Example – As we travel to Guatemala this summer, we hope to see how we can engage the Hispanic community in the Memphis area more effectively. As we engage in ministry in the Hispanic community in Memphis, we want to see how that impacts our ministry in Guatemala.

WHERE ARE WE GOING?

LOCALLY

  • We are organizing mission opportunities through our Life Groups.
  • We participate in local Arlington Community events.
  • Our church is regularly looking for ways to invest in disciple-making in Arlington.

REGIONALLY & IN THE US

  • Our church partners in ministry with Memphis Union Mission.
  • We are seeking ways to engage the Gallaway community with First Baptist Church Gallaway
  • Prayerfully, we will make a stateside mission trip this year

INTERNATIONALLY

  • In 2013 and 2014, we worked with Club House Guatemala to train rural pastors and leaders, construct homes, stoves, chicken coops and vertical gardens, and conduct a Vacation Bible School in a local village school.
There are further opportunities to partner and go internationally forthcoming.
