BBC is an Independent Baptist Church and supports only Independent Baptist missionaries. No mission boards, clearing houses or other associations will be considered for support. This is not intended to discredit any other missionaries on the field, but to express our support for those who believe the Bible as we do.
BBC has, as its main thrust, the objective of planting churches to preach the Gospel. We will support missionaries who are going to the field to carry out this objective. For those going to a foreign field we believe churches should be planted and, eventually, a national pastor should be called. We will not consider support for an American who desires to go on the foreign field and pastor the same church permanently. We believe when the church is established and a national pastor can be called then the missionary should move to a new area and establish a new work. A separate section addresses those who are planting churches in the USA.
BBC will support national pastors on the foreign field as the Lord leads and provides. Support will cease when the church becomes self-supporting. Support may also cease if it is obvious the work is not sustainable. Missionaries who switch positions for which they are being supported may also lose support.
BBC is a fundamental church. We realize that Independent Baptists express a wide variety of preferences. We desire to stand on convictions that are Bible-based and not the preferences of man. We believe the Holy Spirit leads us as individuals and directs us in the way we should go. Our desire is not to hold others to our preferences but we expect our missionaries to be true to the doctrines that God makes plain in His Word. We believe that all Christians should be modest and Christ-like in their appearance and attitude. We believe God’s Word should be given in love, without compromise, and without a mean spirit.
All missionaries supported by BBC should send a quarterly newsletter informing the church on their work. Missionaries may send newsletters more frequently but we desire a letter at least every 3 months. BBC will not support those who do not keep us informed regarding the work.
