Missions have been a vital part of Spruce Pine First Baptist Church, and over the years we have made it an integral part of our church. Our missions work has taken us to many places around the world and in this community. The message is the same, and the mission is clear "go forth and witness to all creatures." One group or person cannot do it alone. God can use us all. He can use You. Below are some of the missions our church members have been involved in and/or support.
