We are committed to making disciples in Macon that will reach the world for Christ.
Because Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all the nations,” we are committed to our community and the world. We support over 50 world missionaries, home missionaries, agencies, colleges, and seminaries. We strive to be “doers of the Word, and not hearers only.” Our goal is to equip our members to express their faith in service to others in Macon, the state of Georgia, America, and the world.
We believe that giving to missions should be above and beyond your tithes and offerings. Missionary support is emphasized during our annual World Missions Conference through what we call Faith Promise giving.
Faith: My trusting God to enable me to give more than I thought I could give, and at the same time to meet my needs.
Promise: The basis of trusting God because He promised to supply all my needs.
Our annual World Missions Conference offers an opportunity to meet and talk with many dedicated missionaries who are doing God’s work around the world. Our World Missions Conference is typically held in February of each year. Find out about our upcoming conference here.
Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Faith Promise?
A Faith Promise for missions is an amount of money or goods that you are willing to promise to give to missions, in faith that God will provide. It is over and above your tithe. At the time you make the Faith Promise, the source of the amount you promise may be unknown to you. A Faith Promise is not a pledge. The church will not call upon you for it. This promise is understood to be in addition to all other commitments to First Presbyterian Church.

Contributions by check may be dropped in the offering plate on Sunday mornings or mailed to our church office (682 Mulberry Street) All Missions related contributions should be marked “Missions” or “Faith Promise.”
