Acts 1:8 states, "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

The Acts 1:8 Challenge is First Baptist Shelbyville's commitment to a comprehensive missions strategy in Bedford County (Jerusalem), Tennessee (Judea), North America (Samaria) and the world (ends of the earth). In accepting this challenge, we rely also on our denominational missions partners – our association, state convention, the North American Mission Board, and the International Mission Board – to assist us.
