Our Global Vision for Turkey

To be a community of faith that shines like a beacon of hope to the Turks of Turkey, doing whatever it takes to share God’s love and build up His church among them.

FBCG Turkey Adoption Covenant

We, the people of First Baptist Church of Geneva, covenant with our Lord and one another to adopt the Turks of Turkey.

We promise to do whatever it takes to share God’s transforming love and build up His church among them.

This includes:

  • Learning more about the Turkish people
  • Praying regularly for their salvation
  • Supporting the Lord’s workers in Turkey
  • Sending additional workers to serve there

We trust in our Lord’s faithfulness to provide both the will and the way for us to carry out our promise.

We make this agreement beginning March 13-14, 2004 until a healthy church is established in Turkey.

FBCG Turkey Outreach

FBCG has selected the unreached people of Turkey with few churches and little access to the Gospel for a focused missions initiative in the years ahead. Fulfilling our adoption covenant requires a long-term partnership with mission workers and churches ministering among the unreached Turks. We can contribute prayers, financial support, and additional workers from our congregation. People with many kinds of skills and interests can find opportunities to serve in this ministry. The Lord is calling some of our people to serve at home, others to join yearly short-term missions to Turkey, and a few to go for several years or as career missionaries who will learn the Turkish language and culture and do the deeper work of missions.
