Mission Statement

As Deaconesses, our mission is to walk in the ways of Jesus Christ, fearing God and living a holy called out life.  We are to carry out the vision of the Pastor and the mission of the Fort Foote Baptist Church.  In confidentiality, we will be a liaison between ministers and leaders to the congregation. We serve the church with compassion and in love, submitting one to another with the continual aid of the Holy Spirit.

We assist (cooperate with) the Pastor and Deacons with (preparation of the observance of the ordinances of the church) Holy Communion and Baptism candidate preparation.

We are dedicated to serve the people within the church fellowship by contacting and visiting the sick and shut-in, and the season saints; supporting the children and youth; counseling and developing the lives of the young girls and women of the church; and to promote the spiritual growth of the body of Christ.
