Baptists Together for Mission
You’ll find a variety of views across our diverse movement.
But some givens unite us.
We long for people to know Jesus, to be transformed by knowing Him, and bless our communities by His work within us. This is why we exist. It is summed up in our Union’s central vision of “Growing healthy churches in relationship for God's mission.”
We recognise that God is at work in this world, and it is our task to join His mission, wherever this may be. We know we are called to love our neighbour, and Jesus has a particular heart for the marginalised. That is why you’ll find our churches engaged in foodbanks, debt counselling, night shelters for the homeless and Street Pastors; running parent and toddler groups, cooking meals for the elderly, providing youth clubs and hosting marriage courses.
Many more examples can be found in the section on Home Mission
, the Baptist national fund which provides grants to churches who would struggle to finance a minister's stipend or an evangelism project on their own.
We also represent the mission of God in national and international ways: engaging with Government, speaking out on matters of faith and justice, and working with and supporting Baptists around the world
