COMMUNITY OUTREACH.  CHANGING THE WORLD.

Taking ministry to the streets.  One mission at a time.

“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”   - MAT 28:18-20 (NIV)

COMMUNITY DAY w/ 5K RUN/WALK FOR AUTISM  (“Running For A Better Life”)
Community Day, sponsored by the “House of Faith” and other local businesses, was introduced in May 2012 in historical Savage, MD and is the single largest community outreach initiative of the “House of Faith”.  Each May/June, this family-friendly, festival-style environment attracts thousands and is typically comprised of local vendors, healthy foods alongside southern favorites, live music, live entertainment, face painting, outdoor Zumba classes, and more

Community day begins with and early-morning initiative, 5K Run/Walk for Autism.  This highly attended, charitable event is designed to increase awareness and raise funds to support research for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).  Participants pay a registration fee (includes an official T-shirt), and 100% of proceeds benefit the Howard County Autism Society. According to the National Autism Society, ASD is the fastest growing, yet most underfunded developmental disorder of the last 20 years. 

“2013 denotes the 2nd Annual Community Day with 5K Run/Walk For Autism.  Last year, FBCOG “House of Faith” donated $7,200 to the Howard County Autism Society.  The House of Faith has several autism families including my own, and we are honored to do our part to help increase awareness and raise much-needed funding to support ASD research,” says Pastor Tyrone P. Jones, IV.

Prison Ministry
"And Joseph's master took him, and put him into the prison, a place where the king's prisoners were bound: and he was there in the prison. But the LORD was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison. And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph's hand all the prisoners that were in the prison; and whatsoever they did there, he was the doer of it. The keeper of the prison looked not to any thing that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper."

Genesis 39:20-23

Mission Statement: To win souls to Christ.

Purpose: To teach, evangelize and support our brothers and sisters who are incarcerated by providing bible study and worship services.

The Outreach Prison Ministry of First Baptist Church of Guilford was founded by Reverend R. A. Miller in 1989. He started out in one institution and to date the prison ministry has expanded to include over thirty called workers ministering in five correctional facilities. Over the years, we have had countless ministers and lay leaders who have delivered the word of God in a variety of formats to include bible study, sermons, musical ministries, theatre, and the delivery of wonderful and powerful testimonies.
