About Missions

True Memorial Baptist Church has a long history of supporting the work of missions around the world.  In 2015, we are partnering with 21 different missionaries and missionary organizations to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and participate in the great commission of Matthew 28:19-20:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Faith Promises

True Memorial Baptist Church uses Faith Promises to support our missionaries and missionary organizations throughout the world

What is a faith promise?

A faith promise is an agreement we make with God to give to missions.  It's a promise because of the commitment to provide a certain amount over a specific time period (usually a year) for missions.  It requires faith because we are trusting God to provide these funds in various ways.

Giving to missions requires us to agree with God that all the people-groups (nations) of the world must believe and obey Jesus Christ.  Faith promise is believing that God's resources are unlimited and that He wants to give toward this global project through His children.  So, when we give, we are giving from God's unlimited resources since everything we have and receive are from His hand.

Making a faith promise requires risk - or it wouldn't be faith.  If we only give the money which fall out of the sky, we risk nothing and our obligation to give is nil.  Real faith promise giving is to commit what we have, knowing that God will supply what is lacking.  This often involves sacrifice and trusting God to provide our needs day by day.

Faith promise is a personal commitment we make to God to give to His cause on a regular basis.  We are making ourselves available to Him as a channel of supply for world evangelization.  And we know from the start that it will cost us to do it.
