Mandate and Mission StatementWe have received a mandate from our Lord in the form of the Great Commandments (Deuteronomy 6:5, Mark 12:29-31) to experience revival and preparation for the work. And in the form of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8) to go and make disciples, baptize them into the fellowship of the church as followers of Jesus Christ, and to disciple them in the Word of God as to the walk of faith and knowledge of the Lord Our God, thereby continuing this cycle of evangelism. The family of God known as:Glencoe First Baptist Church
