In Acts 1:8 Jesus says, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."


Freshwater Church supports the following mission ministries:

  • The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering is an annual offering taken to help support international missions.  It provides salaries and living expenses for missionaries, education for their children, language training and funds for their ministries, enabling them to work and live in global cities and extreme places. Our gifts help missionaries raise up and equip local believers to become effective leaders. Training in biblical church-planting strategy leads them to become church planters among their own people — and the nations.

  • The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering is the primary way we support mission efforts here in North America.  One hundred percent of our gifts that we give helps to train, resource, and send thousands of missionaries involved in church planting and compassion ministries across the United States, Canada and their territories.

  • The Cooperative Program is the way we, as a church, helps to carry out the Great Commission across Missouri, throughout North America, and around the world.  When we give our tithes and offerings here at Freshwater, a percentage of our gifts are used to circle the globe to take the gospel to places where the name of Jesus has yet to be heard.

  • The Missouri Missions Offering is our state's annual missions offering that helps to support projects in four areas of ministry:

    Making Disciples - Collegiate Ministries - Multiplying Churches - Developing Leaders.  In addition to supporting the ministries listed here, 17 percent of the Missouri Missions Offering receipts go to the Missouri Baptist Children's Home.
