Go on Mission
Our church looks forward to the fulfillment of the future scene in heaven detailed in Revelation 7:9-10, “…Behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…crying out with a loud voice, ’Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!’” The Lord will bring people from all over the world into his kingdom and he has invited YOU to be a part of that mission!
We want you to partner with us as we GO on mission, across the street and around the world. We send several teams out each year to various locations.
For specific trip details contact Pastor Stephen Robbins firstname.lastname@example.org
Filter of Hope
In John chapter 4 Jesus is sitting at a well speaking with a Samaritan woman. He speaks with her about physical water in the well. Jesus then tells this woman that she could drink from the “living water” which would satisfy her forever. In that moment she became very interested! Jesus then shared with her that HE was the one who provided this living water, and that He was talking about a spiritual provision. We know everyone needs physical water to survive. Many in the world are sick from poor quality drinking water, and many of these even die from a lack of healthy water. Using special, portable filters you will go with a team to pre-arranged homes in the community. Using a translator, you will help the family set up their brand-new water filter. The best part is that you will then have an opportunity to tell them about the Living Water that Jesus offers them!! Each team member will go through a training process so they will be prepared to participate in these visits.
Our church believes in missions! When it comes to international missions, no one is doing a better job than the International Mission Board (IMB) of the Southern Baptists. Through the IMB, our church adopted an Unreached People Group in the Middle East. This people group, which we call “The Mountain People,” do not have access to the gospel in their own language. Through a variety of strategies we are doing our part to make the gospel available to them. You can be involved by praying for the light of the gospel to go into this dark place and giving to the IMB.

Urban Church Planting
Elkin Valley is closely aligned with Southern Baptist Missions. We partner with the North American Mission Board (NAMB) to plant churches in urban areas. Our church partners in three different ways: Praying, Giving, and Going. First, everyone can pray for the important gospel work in inner cities. Second, most of us are able to give to support this mission effort. Giving is accomplished in several ways: through our church’s budget, through NAMB, and through personal gifts directly given to church planting. Third, many of us can take time to go on a mission trip to work with one of our church planters.
We love our community! We display that love by sharing the gospel and the love of Christ with those who live near our church. Our primary objective is to make the gospel known. We do that through door-to-door evangelism, evangelistic events, and a prayer focused outreach. Additionally, our church is actively involved in the community through several local ministries that touch particular needs. These ministries include emergency housing through the Ark, crisis pregnancy support through Lifeline Pregnancy Care Center, food assistance through Tri-C, addiction recovery through Your Father’s House, etc. If you have an interest in helping with our local outreach in any way e-mail Stephen Robbins at email@example.com.
