“You are invited to participate in the life of the best missional congregation I have ever known.  We desire to be Christ-like in everything we do.  We are genuinely ‘doers’ of the word and not merely ‘hearers.’  From providing basic healthcare to the uninsured through the free Mission Frankfort Clinic, to an entire floor of our building dedicated to a Clothes Closet and Christmas Toy Store, to our Payday Ministry that gets people out of harmful payday loans, to our Soup Kitchen Ministry, to the Emma Quire Mission Center located in Owsley County which is one of the poorest areas in the country, to our partnership with Cooperative Baptist Fellowship missionaries in Morocco as we support their work with refugees and migrants in Oujda.  This is only a small portion of where we try to be the hands and feet of Jesus to a world in need of God’s love.  Come, visit, see us in action and maybe the Lord will lead you to join our team as we seek to be love-carriers to Frankfort, Kentucky and the world.”
