At FBC Skiatook we believe we are not only called to “gather and worship” as a family, but also to “go and share” the Gospel to “the uttermost part of the earth” (Acts 1:8).
As a local church we reach out to our community through Mission Skiatook Projects, our support of local indigent needs through our clothes closet, holiday angel tree and support of local school assistance projects. Additionally we assist individuals, families and the community financially or tangibly in times of need or crisis.
Through our partnership with the BGCO we have established a church planting ministry with Taxco, Guerrero, Mexico, with teams from our local church visiting Taxco 4-6 times per year. Additionally, our church helps a number of our church members who are involved in individual mission trips annually across the nation and around the world.
In recent years we have had members who have gone to Russia, China, the Amazon Basin, South Africa, Colombia, Italy, Belize, Malawi, Latvia, Chile and more.
We voluntarily cooperate with the Washington-Osage Baptist Association, a cooperative of 37 Southern Baptist churches in these two counties. Through our giving and participation in WOBA ministries, we partner with Southern Baptist Disaster Relief projects nation-wide and we support international partnerships with the churches of Malawi (Africa) and Leon, Mexico. We also support the work of local WOBA churches in their efforts to reach NE Oklahoma with the Gospel.
As a member of the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma, we are one of 1,800+ Oklahoma Southern Baptist congregations who work cooperatively to share the Gospel at home and around the world. The BGCO’s mission spirit and cooperation in taking the Gospel to the whole world is evident in its partnerships with Colorado, Guerrero Mexico, and the Far East. The mission to evangelize and congregationalize all of Oklahoma is shown in its cooperative outreach to African Americans and many ethnic groups. Oklahoma Baptists worship in over 29 languages weekly. Oklahoma Baptists continue to work together with local churches, associations, state conventions and the Southern Baptist Convention to fulfill the Great Commission.
As a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, our church prayerfully supports and contributes financially through the Cooperative Program to the work and agencies of the SBC (see also “Giving”). Among these are the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board who are responsible for training, sending and supporting thousands of career missionaries and short-term volunteers to spread the Gospel to “the uttermost parts of the world.”
