Our Missions

Gethsemane Baptist Church is serious about World-Wide Evangelization!  We support many missionary ministries through our "Faith Promise Missions" plan of giving.  In the last 24 years our church family has given $1,759,258.00 to help support many missionaries and mission projects.  Our missions year runs from November 1st to October 31st of each year.  We have promised $52,156.00 for our current missions year!  We are presently on track to complete our 2018-2019 missions year with 100% of our commitments given.

MISSIONS POLICIES

of the 

Gethsemane Baptist Church

 

Through an ongoing restructuring of our missions program based upon revised Mission Policies,

we will no longer take on or continue to support missionaries that:

 

1.  Take extended or mini furloughs before the work is finished!  An extended or mini furlough is defined as leaving the work for over one month per year.  Emergency furlough needs will be examined on an individual basis.

 

2.  Are working as co-laborers with other missionaries in the same mission church work!  (The only exception being the time that missionaries are helping while they are in language school.)

 

3.  Are serving with mission boards or agencies who charge administrative fees!

 

4.  Are raising support directly or indirectly for any other reason than for their personal monthly living needs, airfare, and

     shipping expenses.

 

5.  Do not commit to learning the language of the people to whom they have been called to reach.

 

6.  Are serving in a furlough relief capacity for other missionaries.

 

7.  Are paying the rents, notes, or utility expenses for the church meeting places for the people they are serving with.

 

8.  Change their ministries to something other than that which we took them on for. (They must be re-invited to present their

     new ministry!)

 

9.  Are not working to bring the church they have started or are working with to a fully autonomous position. (That is: Self-

     Governing / Self-Supporting / Self-Propagating!)

 

10. Are not in doctrinal agreement with the positions held by this church.
