Mission Team

We are commissioned by the Lord Jesus to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:19-20). "And He said to them, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature" (Mark 16:15).

Twice a year, teens and adults take short-term mission trips. Through the years, our ministry has traveled to: Russia, Peru, Mexico, Haiti, Honduras, Guatemala, the Bahamas, and other locations. We have seen how the gospel of Jesus Chris has changed lived and impacted communities in these countries. The trips are purposed to be a blessing to others, and in return, the Lord blesses us with a life-changing experience that only HE can do.

Nursing Home Ministry

"Cast me not off in the time of old age, forsake me not when my strength faileth" (Psalm 71:9). The Nursing Home Ministry at Church of the Burning Fire was birthed from the excitement and passion about the Glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Word is preached from Sunday to Sunday with such an anointing here at COTBF; and with that, the Nursing Home Team has taken the word into Nursing Homes for more than twenty years. We currently minister at Zachary Manor Nursing Home every fourth Saturday at 10:00 AM. The seniors are encouraged to engage in praise and worship, receive prayer, and hear the uncompromised Word of God. Through this ministry, many seniors have received the salvation of Jesus Christ; which is the ultimate goal as we are the body of Christ. We must be about our Father's business (Luke 2:49). Any member of COTBF desiring to be a part of the Nursing Home Team should contact Sis. Joyce Hickman or Sis. Naomi Scott.

Prison Ministry

Our Prison Outreach Ministry is designed to minister to underage offenders who are currently incarcerated at the Jetson Correctional Center for Youth.. Using the Word of God as a tool, we are able to encourage, exhort, rebuke, and reprove inmates concerning their present situation as they seek to uncover and reconcile the reality of their lives.

The Word of God states in 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 "Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation, that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them; and has committed us to the word of reconciliation." We believe that young offenders are at a critical juncture in their lives. This is a period where their lives can be changed for better or worse. It is our goal to reach out to these young men, so that they might have the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to respond to Him as their Savior and Deliverer.

It is also our desire to disciple them so that they may be nurtured to grow in the wisdom and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. Prision Ministry meets each first and third Saturdays of the month. If you are a member of COTBF and have been called to serve in this compacity, please call the church office at 225-654-0101.
