Missions

Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations

Matthew 28:19

First Baptist Sevierville is committed to helping people move from their point of need to hope in Christ with our gospel partners in our community, our country, and the world.
Our strategy is to partner with Gospel workers and church planters around the globe.
