World Ministries

At Harvest Baptist Church our goal is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. (Mark 16:15) “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”   We do this by supporting missionaries on the foreign field as well as ministries who get the Gospel to the world through donating bibles and through the internet and radio.  Our support continues to help missionaries who have reached their destination and are  currently serving God Through preaching and teaching the Gospel in areas  that are sometimes dangerous or in conditions that might be unfamiliar with our own surroundings.  Some face very real risks for their goal to spread The Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Every missionary  will tell you that the number one need is prayer. Diligent prayer for our missionaries is absolutely vital.  Another important way to help is to get personally involved with the missionary families. They often live in a culture that is so radically different from what they are used to that they begin to feel isolated. Write to them at their field address. Send them birthday cards. Send them choir tapes. Don’t just send an email – nothing compares with receiving an envelope in the mailbox. Include photos of church activities and other things to help lessen the sense of isolation.   When writing, understand that mail delivery can be far less reliable than we are accustomed to in America. Don’t be surprised if it is delayed for weeks, or if it is simply lost.

CROATIA:

 Visiting with some missionaries in New Zealand, Kevin was struck by the realization that there were millions of children who might never hear the gospel unless someone goes and shares it with them. After Praying with his wife, Kristina, God spoke to him through Jonah 4:2.  And later, a conversation with another missionary impressed on them the need in Croatia, and they answered the call.

 PERU:

God has called us to be church-planting missionaries in the city of Tacna, Perú. Tacna is a city of 350,000 people located near the southern border of Peru., Many Peruvians are Catholic and other religions including: Jehovah’s Witness, Seventh Day Adventist, and Muslims are making inroads as well. The need is great and the time is short to share with these people the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 We are church building missionaries with the C.L.A.I.M. ministry of BIMI. C.L.A.I.M stands for Christian Laymen Assisting International Missionaries. Our role is to assemble and lead teams of laymen on mission trips to complete church building projects for missionaries on the field.   However, the heart of our ministry is soul-winning. We could build thousands of churches and not one of those would matter if souls are not being reached with the Gospel.
