Do you feel a tug on your heart to share the good news of Jesus?
Each of us has an important, God-given role to play. The Lord instructed us to take His message of love and forgiveness to every person in every community, in every city, in every country of the world. Will you help? Here are a few ways that you might get involved and respond to the command found in the "Great Commission" that Jesus outlined for us in Matthew 28: 19-20:
Currently, we are focusing our global missions’ efforts on the country of Peru. Over the next 10 years, we will share the gospel and send teams of doctors, teachers, construction workers and other volunteers to serve God’s people in that Latin America country for weeks at a time.

In 2010 First Baptist Church of Glenarden gave $500,000 each to World Vision and Compassion International to address world hunger.

FBCG members also donated $150,000 to the Haiti crisis and the church added an additional $100,000 to that effort. Recently in 2012, we also gave an additional $200,000 to Compassion International to continue its fight against world hunger.
In addition, FBCG partnered with MegaCare Mission and built a water well for the Melchizedek Hospital in Nairobi, Kenya.
