Missions Philosophy

Witness in Word and Deed

Mission Statement

Bring the Gospel to unbelievers, both locally and internationally, with an emphasis on unreached people groups. (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8, Romans 15:20-21)

The core principles that guide our team and lead to the implementation of our mission statement are as follows:

  1. We facilitate the establishment of new churches and strengthen developing churches around the world. (Acts 13:2-3, 14:21-23)

  2. We support the training and equipping of cross-cultural workers to do their job well, investing in resources and tools they need. (Philippians 4:16-18, Ephesians 4:11-12)

  3. We build long-term faithful relationships with our cross-cultural workers and the local churches to whom they are ministering in order to partner with them in evangelism and discipleship. (Titus 1:5, Philippians 1:3-5)

  4. We facilitate communication between our missionaries and our congregation, to be invested in one another, to pray for specific and timely needs, and to hold each other accountable in Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:25-28, Ephesians 6:18-20, Philippians 4:14-15)

  5. We encourage and equip our congregation to be disciple-makers in their daily lives. (Matthew 28:19-20, Colossians 2:6-7, 2 Timothy 2:1-2)

  6. We prioritize support of cross-cultural workers of the North American Baptist Conference (NAB) and local ministries, particularly those individuals who have been active in our fellowship at West Center Baptist. (Philemon 1:7, 2 Corinthians 1:11, 9:7, 3 John 1:6b-8)

  7. We desire to grow in knowledge and understanding about Christian missions around the world, staying informed of current trends and research, and to communicate this information with our church family. (James 1:5-8, Philippians 1:9-11)
