This Great Commission effort is what we are all part of at FBC as we
Glorify Christ in Worship, Discipleship, and Mission.



FBC Bettendorf gives 10% off the top to the Cooperative Program (CP). This 10% supports the Baptist Convention of Iowa (BCI), the International Mission Board (IMB), the North American Mission Board (NAMB), as well as our six Southern Baptist Seminaries and the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission (ERLC) all of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). An additional 2% is set aside to support FBC Directed Missions Trips.


Special Offerings in addition to the 10% CP giving are also contributed. 100% of the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO) goes to support international missionary effort through the IMB. Over 3,700 missionaries world-wide are supported by this. 100% of the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO) goes to support North American missionary efforts through NAMB. Another 3,000 + missionaries in North America are supported by this.



In addition to these joint efforts with the Cooperative Program, the IMB, and NAMB, in 2023 we also established a scholarship at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. The “Called to the Nations Scholarship”, is a grant funded by FBC to provide financial assistance to seminary students training to be full-time international missionaries. The selection of the recipients is overseen by MBTS.


We praise God for his provision and for the opportunity to participate in the work of Southern Baptist to make the Gospel known throughout Bettendorf, Iowa, the United States, and around the world! You can find more information on the beneficiaries of Cooperative Program giving below.
