Grace Bible Church’s Missions Ministry exists to:
- Be obedient to the command of Matt. 28:19-20 by sending workers into the harvest field, that people would hear the gospel & come to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, and teaching them to obey all that he has commanded us.
- To do this by supporting missionaries who are like-minded in the essential points of doctrine with Grace Bible Church.
- To do this also by sending the most qualified workers from this body to minister the gospel to people in other countries who do not have a consistent biblical witness for Jesus Christ.
- With regards to 1 & 2; the missions committee believes that the elders’ direction and goal is to make church planting and preaching the priority in determining who and what ministries to support.
- The elders and the missions committee believe that the primary responsibility of oversight for missionaries lies with the elders of the local sending church.
- To facilitate and organize support for, and communication with missionaries on the field.
- To encourage the general membership of the church to support and pray for the missionaries on the field.
