We gladly extend prayer and financial support to:
Marc and Rachel Tanis
The Tanis family plans to serve in Kitwe, Zambia at Central Africa Bible College. They plan to go in January 2016. They are currently on deputation raising funds for their 18 month trip. You can follow their progress at Zambia on My Heart. The Tanises hold a special place in the heart of our church because they have been with us since the summer of 2010. Marc and Rachel have faithfully served in our church in multiple capacities. We have seen them grow as a couple and now as a family. They are "Sent Missionaries." "Sent missionaries" are members of Bible Baptist Church whom we have commissioned for missionary service, and for whom we are the home church. We are in full support of their prospective ministry. We have financially supported the Tanises since June 2015.
Continental Baptist Missions
CBM's mission is to provide support services for planting and developing biblically sound and spiritually healthy Baptist churches in North America. CBM was an instrumental partner to us in the first several years of our church. We are glad to reciprocate the support they provided us. We have financially supported CBM since January 2012.
David and Kristi Flinck
The Flinck family is church planting in Antofagasta, Chile. They serve with Gospel Missions of South America. We have financially supported the Flincks since July 2014.

Missions and Missions Commitments
The missional marching orders for every follower and church of Christ has not changed since He spoke what we know as the Great Commission two thousand years ago. A commitment to the mission of Jesus means a commitment to other aspects of missions work.
A commitment to missions means a commitment to prayer. The Lord called his followers to pray after He points out the need/ (Matthew 9:37-38). The Apostle Paul also asked for the prayers of the saints that the Lord would open a door of faith among the Gentiles (Acts 14:27; Colossians 4:3). So too we must pray for the Lord to send and prosper missionary activity.
A commitment to missions means a commitment to assign resources to the task. The work of missions is fueled by faith. At the same time, resources are a necessity for missions. We will commit to setting aside financial resources to the work of missions. “For they have gone out for the sake of the name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles.  Therefore we ought to support people like these, that we may be fellow workers for the truth” (3 John 7-8; cf. Romans 15:24; Philippians 4:15).
Outreach to All Nations
A commitment to missions means a commitment to all nations. Jesus commanded that we make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19) for the sake of his name among all the nations (Romans 1:5). Therefore we must involve ourselves in the word of both home and foreign missions.
A commitment to missions means a commitment to church planting. We discover that a relatively new church in Antioch sends out missionaries to do the work of evangelism and church-planting. Church planting is an essential objective in missions.
A commitment to missions means a commitment to interdependence. We see churches of like faith sharing the responsibility of missions through cooperative work (e.g., the church at Antioch and the church at Jerusalem in Acts 19:11-30) and giving (e.g., the churches in Macedonia in 2 Corinthians 8:1-4). Therefore, we need to be committed to cooperating with churches of like faith and practice to advance missionary endeavors.
We will trust God as a church to enable the continual enlargement of our commitment to missions.
