What We Do

God's Church spans the globe and connects disciples in spite of political boundaries. Sharing the disciple’s life with our international brothers and sisters helps us better understand what it means to follow Christ, and together we can respond to the brokenness that we find both inside and around us. Our history of long-term mission partnerships, as well as participation in the Baptist World Alliance and its regional fellowships, enable us to facilitate meaningful connections with faith communities in many countries and cultures.

Mutually transformative, long-term relationships are foundational to our attitude toward ministry. We would like to see every local church collaborating with an international partner in their ministry efforts. We believe that sharing spiritual and physical resources helps all of us to discover and more fully respond to God's call to specific mission in our respective communities.

Currently our international ministry partnerships are concentrated around global concerns.
