World Missions

Our church is currently supporting 35 Christian workers from 21 different countries around the world. They range from missionaries, to evangelists, to pastors, as well as several other ministries. Our church sends monthly support to these folks, as provided through our Faith Promise giving each year. We have our annual Missions Conference each October, and that is when our Faith Promise is determined for the upcoming year.

We at Maranatha Baptist Church believe strongly in supporting missionaries, in obedience to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.") as well as our love for lost souls around the world and in our own communities.

We have a great local outreach program in place to reach our local communities, and believe that it is the duty of every saved person to be a witness for Jesus Christ. We are so blessed to be able to support these brothers and sisters in Christ and to be co-laborers in their ministries. "How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!"--Romans 10:15.
