Church Planting and World Missions

Our concern for the spread of the gospel does not end with our own city, county, or state. We are actively concerned for the expansion of God’s kingdom to the uttermost parts of the earth as well.

When the newly formed Particular Baptist Missionary Society for the Conversion of the Heathen was preparing to send out their first two missionaries, John Thomas (1757-1800) and William Carey (1761-1834), the Society’s first Secretary, Andrew Fuller (1754-1815), said:

Our undertaking in India really appeared to me at its commencement to be somewhat like…penetrating into a deep mine, which had never before been explored…while we were thus deliberating, Carey, as it were, said, “Well, I will go down, if you will hold the rope.” But before he went down, he, as it seemed to me, took an oath from each of us at the mouth of the pit to this effect, that, while we lived, we should never let go of the rope.

Each of us has a vital role to play in the cause of world missions. If we are not among those sent out as missionaries, we are called to “hold the ropes” for those who are through fervent prayer, financial support, and encouragement. Each of our church planters, missionaries, and national pastors fully subscribe to the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith (1677/89). The goals of each one is to evangelize the lost, plant local churches, and mentor indigenous elders in each church until the earth is filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).
