First Baptist Church gives regularly to support Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) missionaries around the world.
We currently give 11% of undesignated income to the Cooperative Program.
The Cooperative Program supports the California Southern Baptist Convention with mission work all across California. The Cooperative Program also supports the International Mission Board and 5,000 international missionaries. Along with that the Cooperative Program also funds the North American Mission Board and about 5,000 missionaries here in the United States. And through our Cooperative Program offering we help operate six Southern Baptist Seminaries. Our little gifts combined with 46,000 other small gifts go a long way in reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We give 3% to our association of Southern Baptists. This supports three missionaries in San Diego and two in Tijuana. We also support special mission offerings such as Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, State Missions Offering, World Hunger Offering, and special needs offering such as the Philippians relief fund.
