Mission and Community

Missions Ministry

Contact: missions@alfredstreet.org

The Missions Ministry of Alfred Street Baptist Church (ASBC) strives to fulfill and perform the duties of Matthew 25:35-36 with commitment, prayer, service, and dedication through community outreach within the church, local community and state; while developing national and international partnerships. God opens the door for evangelism and the witnessing of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, for we are sent to serve God and the people of God.

Missions is committed to Building Disciples to Win the World through the four core values of Alfred Street Baptist Church: Evangelism, Excellence, Relationships, and Stewardship.

We provide resources for in-depth mission and evangelism education; promote a holistic method to missions augmented by a hands-on approach. We convene with and support the mission and ministry objectives of the Baptist General Convention of Virginia, Lott Carey Baptist Foreign Mission Convention, the Progressive National Baptist Convention, and the National Baptist Convention, USA.

All ASBC Missions events involve the community and a cause, as we invite and unite communities in and outside of our doors. The Missions Ministry is the legs of social justice. Domestic violence, human trafficking, and elder care are just some of the issues that affect us all in some way, shape and/or form; therefore, we urge you to come together to work for the common good-locally, nationally, and internationally.
