Eagles Landing First Baptist Church is not the only one concerned about meeting the needs of our community and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ. There are several ministries in our community that we have teamed up with to combat poverty, educational challenges, homelessness, and preserve and protect human life... all for the glory of Jesus Christ!
So, how will we respond to the challenges that our culture brings our way every day? Better yet, how will we respond to the “compassionate call” of the gospel every day?
Here are some specific opportunities and partners to help you and your family and friends answer that question—to respond to that call.
The mission of Action Ministries is to mobilize metro Atlanta communities to address the challenges of poverty by focusing on hunger relief, housing and education. By meeting immediate needs and providing top-notch educational opportunities, our programs are designed to lead people out of poverty.
