Our burden to proclaim Christ is not confined to our own locality but extends to all nations. For this reason we are actively engaged in foreign missions, supporting qualified and tested men to take to lost sinners the good news of the forgiveness of sins and eternal life through repentance and faith in the risen Christ.
Support for global missions has been a hallmark of Grace Baptist from our earliest days. We now support several missionaries and national pastors both directly and through in coordination with other Reformed Baptist churches. These include connections to men and ministries on six continents proclaiming the gospel and planting churches.
The church receives frequent updates about ongoing work and prayer requests, and enjoys hosting missionaries as they visit the US. Many of our members have developed close personal ties to these men and their families over the years, and make it a point to stay in touch and pray for them regularly. Listed below are several missionary and national pastor families we support in prayer and/or financially.
