Mission and American Baptists
“Mission” is a wide-ranging concept. It implies all the varied work we undertake as individuals, churches and organizations in applying our faith and in sharing the Gospel message with others. Mission is an awesome invitation and responsibility, and an endeavor that can never be exhausted. We undertake it realizing that only with God’s help can the immense task of Christian mission be accomplished.
The local congregations and regional and national organizations that form our denominational family see opportunities for mission every day, and we live out ministries in the name of Christ with many people in many places.
Prominent among them are:
- Leader Development
- Ministries of Healing
- Ministries that Seek Justice
- Ministries to Families, Children and Youth
