Why Support Missions?
Is your church experience less than meaningful? Deep down inside do you have a thought that your faith is more than committee meetings, sitting in the pew, planning the annual picnic?
Baptist Churches exist for mission and ministry, not for themselves.
“You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 NIV
Many churches of the Great Rivers Region live Acts 1:8 out each day, in good and poor economic times. Many members recognize that our poorest of economic times has us in much better condition that what most in this world experience in the best of their times. Missions require financial support, which ABCUSA collects throughout the year through various United Mission offerings. Did you know that roughly 65% of GRR’s yearly funding comes from United Missions?
