Making an Impact

Bible Baptist Church desires to make an Impact for Jesus Christ locally, nationally and globally. To do that, we have partnered with others to give hope to the hopeless and share God's truth with those who don't know Him personally. These are the missionaries Bible Baptist Church supports with our prayers and finances:

  • Chris & Sarah Collins

    Chris and Sarah serve in Puebla, Mexico through Mission Quest. They serve in disciple-making ministries, through theological education at Puebla Bible Seminary and through orphan care at the New Beginnings and New Life Children's Homes. They also serve in a new church plant, Inglesia Bautista Agape, in music, teaching, preaching and discipleship ministries.

  • Josh & Rachel Stewart

    Josh & Rachel are church planting missionaries in Taiwan. They are currently working at Cornerstone Baptist Church to establish, teach, train, and develop leaders, who in God’s time will take over the church. Taiwan is very hard and cold to the gospel, so the challenge is finding outreach techniques that best help them meet and reach the community around them for Christ. Please pray for more specific opportunities and for the salvation of souls.
