Missions

City View Baptist Church Values Missions.
Because we value missions, we are eager to engage locally and globally. We believe our mission is to urgently engage our world with the Good News of Christ, seeing the needs, praying with compassion, and going as the Lord sends us into Knoxville and to the ends of the earth. Therefore, we are committed to praying, supporting, sending, and going missionally.

Mission Project Report: Helping Our Missionaries in Eastern Europe
DONATED ITEMS ON THEIR WAY TO EASTERN EUROPE
Diapers, blankets, pillows, clothing, and more…members of City View Baptist Church filled a pickup truck with much-needed items that are now bound for Moldova, where Southern Baptist missionaries are assisting thousands of refugees who were forced from their homes in Ukraine. With our collection ending April 20, the items were delivered the next day to God’s Warehouse, a 120,000+ square foot facility in Morristown operated by the Nolachucky Baptist Association. Volunteers at God’s Warehouse are sorting and packing items, with a shipping container to be trucked to the port in Savannah, Georgia, then off to Europe. More about God’s Warehouse here.

Items donated by City View Baptist are unloaded at God’s Warehouse in Morristown.

Join the Missions Club!

Our 2021 World Missions Offering grew by over 30%, thanks to the love our church has for missions. Whether you give monthly through the Missions Club or you give a single larger gift in December, your faithful giving to missions is a blessing to our missionaries and to those whom they are reaching.

If you traditionally participate in our December Missions March, perhaps monthly giving to our World Missions Offering can help you give more to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our community and around the world. You can be part of our Missions Club by making regular monthly designated offerings to our World Missions Offering. Just indicate on your check or envelope that your gift is for “World Missions Offering,” so we’ll know it’s separate from your church tithes and offerings to the church budget. Then, you can give your regular monthly gift for December during our Missions March on December 18. For your convenience, you can also give online by clicking the button below.

Please Note: Your gifts to World Missions Offering and other designated offerings should not replace your regular tithes to the ministries of your church. To give to our regular church budget offering, click here.
