After He rose from the dead and just before He ascended back to heaven, Jesus Christ gave a command to his disciples that has come to be known as the Great Commission.  Matthew 28:19-20 gives the crux of this mandate: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”

We take this commission seriously.  It is the role of the church to make disciples.  We do this by “baptizing” and “teaching.”  We have practical "mission" training for our children, youth and adults, along with special and "hands on" events throughout the year.


Dale & Lynn Martin – Missionaries to Alaska

Dale and Lynne have been ministering in Alaska since 2001 when they joined thousands of North Carolinians in the NC/AK partnership of the SBC’s state to state partnership program. When the partnership expired in ’04, the Martins continued serving as missionaries in Alaska, primarily in Baptist youth camps, doing cleaning, food preparation, maintenance repairs, building new cabins, camp nursing, and more. They began as volunteers at LaVerne Griffin Youth Camp in Wasilla from ‘01-‘02 and then assistant camp directors there from ’03-’06. Since ‘07, they have served at Camp Baldwin in Delta Junction, a much smaller and more rural camp, where they will serve as managers again this year. When the camp season closes, they move on to other mission sites where God is already working. They have aided in new church construction in Wasilla, roof replacement and flood control in Salcha, handicap ramp construction in Soldotna, and exterior wall repair and window replacement at FBC, Delta Jct. They are anticipating another fruitful year at Camp Baldwin this summer as they travel the 5,000-plus mile cross country and Alcan journey in their 33 foot RV, home for 6 months each year.

Manteo Baptist Church has not only commissioned and sent the Martins to Alaska each spring, and encouraged them during the time there were away, but the church has sent numerous mission teams to work along side them in the camps.
