Purpose: To help the churches mobilize for Acts 1:8 missions involvement by encouraging, educating, equipping, and celebrating local, regional, national, and international missions, church planting and disciple-making efforts.
Metrolina Baptist Association is here to encourage and equip your church toward a missional lifestyle. Pray for MBA, that together we will be the missions force God has designed us to be.
We will be focused on missions and church planting with these goals in mind:
ENCOURAGING: We want to encourage missions and evangelism efforts in our association by identifying where our churches are involved in missions and encouraging that work by spreading the word on what God is doing through us. We know that our churches are very active in missions efforts – we encourage those who are involved to continue and increase.
EDUCATING: Working with our established missions education efforts and identifying new ways to teach the importance of missions awareness and involvement, we cooperate with our churches in every way possible to educate our Baptist family on ways to be involved in missional ministry.
EQUIPPING: When we identify where churches are involved in missions and evangelism, and when we find opportunities to do missions and evangelism, we do all that we can do to prepare those who will be missionaries. This includes everything involved in assisting and resourcing for missions, working in close cooperation with our associated churches. This specifically involves relationships between congregations that facilitate greater missions activity.
CELEBRATING: Metrolina Baptist Association finds ways to celebrate all God is doing to make us a missional people–Christians and congregations who are serious about reaching those around us and around the world with the good news of Jesus Christ. One of the primary ways we celebrate is by identifying what God is doing in specific congregations and neighborhoods and spreading the word on those activities of the Lord among us.
