our prison ministries

First Baptist Church has become very involved in prison ministry outreach since Pastor Wiest came to our church, as he has a great burden to reach the souls in all places they are found.

Our prison ministry has grown into a enormous ministry reaching into several prisons located in our area.

Our Church has organized its own Prison Ministry; Know The Truth Prison Ministry (KTTPM) and also organized and operates a free Know The Truth Bible Institute offered to all prisoners, their families and whosoever via correspondence. The students can continue with the Institute after their release and compete their courses and receive their diploma.

Presently the following units are being ministered to by the Church's Teams:

  • Reynaldo Lopez State Jail (1050) men Edinburg, Texas
  • Manuel Segovia Unit (1500) men Edinburg, Texas
  • Willacy Stae Jail (1045) men Raymondville, Texas
  • Federal Pre-Trial Unit (500) men and women Raymondville, Texas
  • Immigration Customs Enforcement Detention Center (2,500) men and women Raymondville, Texas

In this ministry there have been many souls saved, lives changed, families salvaged, and witnesses sent all over the world as they are reached with the gospel, saved and sent back to their own countries with Bibles, Testaments, or portions of Scripture that has been given to them while detained.

This is a very worthy ministry and we ask you please pray faithfully and support this God ordained ministry.
