First Baptist Church of Suffolk has seen the need for a ministry specifically geared toward today's Military family. This need was realized as the church began to see a larger number of military families visiting and seeking a military-friendly church. Because of the close proximity to the Portsmouth and Norfolk ports, it seemed good to reach out to them in practical and spiritual ways.
The Mission of the Military Ministry is to:
Be a spiritual light to reflect Christ to our Military singles and families.
1. To share the Gospel with each family and to strengthen their walk with Christ, through the preaching of God's Word, through Bible Studies, through Christian literature geared to the Military, through fellowship and assisting them in finding resources for needs which arise specific to military life.
2. To encourage this part of the body of Christ by providing special events and fellowships in their honor to show appreciation throughout the calendar year for their sacrifice. To provide moral, spiritual and physical support through church families who volunteer to connect with a military (single) or family.
