"Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature."
Baptist Faith Missions assists Baptist churches to send God-called missionaries to fulfill church-planting missions in the nations of the world.
We believe that "essential Great Commission missions" is to preach the Gospel, evangelize, baptize disciples, establish Baptist churches, and train the disciples to obey everything that our Lord Jesus Christ has commanded.
While we believe that all other outreach ministries and services may accomplish good works and meet worthwhile social and spiritual needs, we believe that our purpose, scope, and focus should concentrate on essential Great Commission Gospel missions."
This is the original mission and historical calling we believe the Lord has given BFM to fulfill. (e.g. 2 Timothy 3:10) This the CHIEF GOAL of our mission, the one thing needful, the work we do best and most effectively.
To fulfill this PURPOSE AND MISSION:
Baptist Faith Missions receives and distributes funds for the support of missionaries.
Baptist Faith Missions does not ordain, "send", commission, or assign fields of service to missionaries. These ministries are the purpose of their respective sending churches.
Baptist Faith Missions interviews prospective candidates for missionary service who are recommended to us by their respective sending churches.
Baptist Faith Missions assists with the necessary legal paperwork to satisfy the requirements of local, state, and federal laws in the United States and in the countries where the missionaries serve or plan to serve.
Baptist Faith Missions publishes a monthly newsletter, The Mission Sheets. It contains letters from our missionaries and news about their ministries and needs and is distributed without charge to any interested church or person.
