We want to affirm and bless the Holy Spirit's calling upon people's lives all over, so, as a result, we support missionaries that declare the Glory of God to the peoples of the world, not just here in our community. Missionaries exist to introduce Jesus Christ to those who do not know Him, to assist new believers in growing strong and healthy in their faith, to see new believers enfolded into a maturing church, and to invest in the lives of current and future church leaders, so they can effectively reach out to others in their communities and the world. We currently support oversea missionaries Hoyt and Lois Osborne and missionaries sent through the International Mission Board (a Southern Baptist Convention ministry supported through the Cooperative Program). Please be praying for boldness and the safety of our brothers and sisters abroad and over seas.
Our philosophy on missions is largely based off of Matthew 28:17-19 which reads -"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you." God's intent is to redeem and save all of his elect (John 6:37) out of every tribe and tongue for His glories sake (Revelation 7:9). Scripture also affirms that "faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17). Therefore, the individual people that make up the church have the privilege and responsibility to share the Gospel so that people may hear so that God may perhaps, grant repentance (2 Timothy 2:25). Our goal is to help those missionaries who are doing the work of church ministry (discipleship and the observance of gospel preaching and the ordinances), as well as those caring for orphanages.
