Our president and leaders represents the TBC Missionary Society at Montgomery County Missionary Union Meetings every month, and our members attend and support Springfield District Association events as well as support Western Union Baptist Association, Ohio Baptist Convention and the National Baptist Convention.  We encourage others to join our mission.

ACCOUNTABILITY: We pray for our church, our Pastor and our ministry.  We meet monthly (which is held the 2nd Tuesday of each month) and assess our goals, pray and distribute pertinent information to carry out our mission.  We are reminded of our mission by reciting the Missionary Pledge: 

  • "I pledge by daily reading, meditation and communion with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to live an upright Christian life, to practice His teachings in  my dealings with my fellow man; to dedicate my talent and give of my time, influence and means to teaching or spreading the Christian religion at home and abroad.  To win souls through personal service for Christ; to encourage and help in the enlistment of young people in Christian work and to make my home a center of Christian light and love. To these ends, I pledge to devote myself and seek divine aid and guidance daily that I may become a living witness and a bright and shining light for my Lord"
