MISSIONS

 

We are a missionary people. Spreading of the Good News of Jesus Christ through mission efforts locally and around the world is deeply embedded in our DNA. Jesus’ command to take the Gospel to the entire world (Matt. 28:19-20) and the early Church’s example of taking their faith from Jerusalem, Judah, to the uttermost parts of the world in Acts are key to our life together.

 

ABCRM seeks to empower churches to engage in mission activities and support in their community, in our nation, and around the world. Internationally, we support work through missionaries and local partner groups through International Ministries. Within the United States we partner with American Baptist Home Mission Societies, chaplains in hospitals and the military, and various other groups who empower us to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus in the United States of America. Locally, we partner with food pantries, homeless shelters, ministries to immigrants, ministries to the disabled and aging, and hundreds of other organizations.  We are a missionary people.

Values We Live By In Our Mission Work

Balanced

We consider the breadth of human needs and strive to have a healthy balance of mission support that responds to the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs.

Partnership

We have developed self-sustaining, effective, and healthy mission through the collaborative effort between ABC missionaries, ABC national organizations, regional staff, and local churches.

Mission Culture

We are creating a common language and common tools whereby ABCRM churches can grow in mission awareness and celebrates what God is doing in and through us.

Financial Support

In the past decade, American Baptists have radically reshaped how we support our missionaries. ABCRM is working to empower local churches to grow in their support of ABC mission work.

Personal Engagement

We believe that God can use short-term mission (STM) engagements to transform lives. Often, it is a way that God enables the blind to see. (Luke 4:18) These STM engagements remind us that we are part of a very large family.

We are a missionary people. We are American Baptists.
