Our Mission Statement
The Missions Team was formed with the mission to facilitate the sharing of the Gospel of Christ with those here in the community, regionally and around the world.
How do we do we fulfill our mission?
Our Team believes that a two-fold approach is the most effective way to fulfill our mission. First, we prayerfully and financially support both local ministries and ministries around the world whose primary mission is to tell the world about Jesus Christ – to share His Gospel and the hope that is in Him.
And secondly, we believe that we must encourage, teach and provide opportunities for our own members to reach out beyond the doors of BBC with the Gospel of Christ. We regularly sponsor the members of our church in short-term missions projects which have taken them to many parts of the world.
