Dear Faith in Action Partners,
First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens (FBCLG) has an 82-year history of spiritual and physical growth. Starting with very meager resources, our humble beginnings have been blessed to become a significant institution making spiritual, social and economic impact at home and abroad. Against formidable odds and through difficult times, God has allowed us to be winners for the Kingdom.
As we face the headwinds of cultural change, disruptive technology, demographic diversity and the need for upgraded facilities, we are crafting new strategies to win souls, win minds and win hearts to the teachings of Jesus and the power of Christian living. Hearts We Win!
In preparation for the 85th Anniversary of this great church, we will launch a two-year initiative, Hearts We Win Stewardship – Giving at a New Level, that will both prepare the church for the future and transition the church into the future. This is an opportunity to grow into a ministry that is not only vibrant but also sustainable. We must secure an additional $4.5 million above our regular income in 2020 and 2021 in order to execute our vision. Together, we can reach that goal.
Thank you in advance for generosity. I believe God will bless us far beyond anything that we could have imagined.
DeForest B. Soaries, Jr.
