Missions Overview

Being on mission is not only something we do at Riverbend Baptist but it is a part of who we are.

It has been accurately said, “The light that shines farthest, shines brightest at home.” We take seriously the command of Jesus found in Acts 1:8 to be a witness of Christ in our Jerusalem, our Judea, our Samaria and to the ends of the earth. Jerusalem represents local mission opportunities, Judea represents regional mission opportunities, Samaria represents North American mission opportunities and the ends of the earth, represent international missions. Whether it is across the street or around the world, we desire to take the message of Christ to all people.

We are currently engaged in missions through our financial gifts to the Cooperative Program of the Southern Baptist Convention, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering and the Armstrong Easter Offering.  Our financial gifts to these ministries allow us to support ten-thousand plus missionaries in North America and every other continent of the world.

Not only do we support missions through our giving, but we also support missions by going.  Each year our church will send teams of missionaries all over the world sharing the love of Jesus Christ.  On September 16, 2012, we launched a new vision for our church, one that allows us to reach the lost and create disciples across the globe.  We’ve provided a brochure to our church membership outlining this new vision.
