Missions

Grace Baptist Church takes seriously Christ’s command to “go ye into all the world and preach the gospel.”  We currently provide regular monthly financial support to 15 missionary families who are faithfully proclaiming God’s Word around the world, in addition to periodic gifts to other mission works.  More than 20 percent of the church’s total annual income is designated to our world-wide missions outreach.

Our missions program is totally supported through Faith-Promise giving.  Faith-Promise simply means our members promise the Lord, by faith, to give an amount over-and-above their regular tithe to support missionaries.  As they trust the Lord to give the amount they have promised, and as He provides, they place this amount in the missions offering.

Members of our church make their Faith-Promise commitments during October each year, which is our special missions emphasis month. The individual commitments are anonymous and, therefore, are not recorded by the church. The church does record the total of all commitments, which then becomes the basis for determining the next year’s mission’s budget. Our missionary families are listed below by mission board.
