Rappahannock Baptist Church is a mission driven church. We work diligently to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities in which we live. We take to heart the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 25:40 where He said, "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me." We believe that we need to flesh out the Gospel by being Jesus to the lost, hurting, and lonely. We participate in these programs to fufill that mission.
Our church has been involved with Operation Inasmuch United in the Northern Neck since it's beginning here. Through this compassion revolution we join forces with many other local churches to meet the physical needs of people in our community. Each year this ministry grows and more lives are touched with the love of Jesus.
Each year we partner with Samaritan's Purse and take part in Operation Christmas Child. We fill shoeboxes with simple gifts for children around the world. The gifts may be a small toy, hygiene items, colors and a coloring book; anything a child might like to receive at Christmas. The best gift in the box though is a message in their native language about the greatest gift of all time, Jesus the babe born in Bethlehem.
