Where Can I Serve?

In Matthew 28:19 – 20 Jesus said “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you, and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age”.  One of the most important values of Ava General Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Ava General Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries such as cleaning the church, nursing home visits, working with local charitable organizations, ringing the bell at Christmas at Walmart, and so many more opportunities to be Jesus to everyone we meet.


Mission Outreach

“For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat;  I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink;  I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, an you came to Me.”  Matthew 25:35-36.

The congregation of the Ava General Baptist Church has a heart for missions.  We support missions locally, nationally and internationally.

The Ava General Baptist Church is an active part of Home Missions of the Ozarks.  Home Missions of the Ozarks has a focus of planting new churches in our local area.



God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir.  These servants are an important part of the ministry of Ava General Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


Media & Technology

We use media and technology to assist us in spreading the Gospel.  Our weekly sermons are uploaded to YouTube and our website in video and audio formats.   We offer text alerts of urgent prayer concerns, service updates, cancellations.

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Ava General Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, Ava General Baptist Church holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the 10:45 am Worship service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church servants have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.  Children’s Church for kindergarten to 4th grade kids.
