Grace Baptist Mission is a church-based mission, helping Grace Baptist churches to support and care for their missionaries worldwide. The mission is based in the United Kingdom, with the Mission Centre in Abingdon, and it works with local churches to support their missionaries in more than a dozen countries in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
There is also a radio ministry producing Bible-teaching programmes for listeners in both English and French, broadcasting to numerous Christian radio stations worldwide. From this there has developed a worldwide literature ministry, providing resources to thousands of local churches in the developing world.
We are deeply committed to evangelism and church-planting as the heart of mission. New churches are being planted by missionaries in Peru, Kenya, Latvia, Poland, Serbia and the Philippines, and national Christians around the world are being helped to plant and grow indigenous churches. Other missionaries are working to evangelise the river peoples of the Amazon, the deaf community in Austria, the homeless in Manila, and Asian women in Britain. Training leaders, is also an important part of the work.
The over-riding aim of EMF is to establish Biblical Christianity throughout Europe. This embraces the work of evangelism, church-planting and supporting gospel churches, whilst at the same time encouraging them to become self-governing and self-supporting. EMF words closely with evangelical churches both at home and abroad in our constant desire to further the spread of the gospel.
EMF facilitates the support of both missionaries sent out from the United Kingdom (and other countries) and indigenous pastors and evangelists.
Training is also provided via an intensive twenty four-week theological course at our headquarters in Welwyn, 25 miles north of London.
EMF is involved in translating and publishing good Christian literature to assist those engaged in gospel work. Our intention is to provide believers in other parts of Europe with a little of the wealth of Christian literature available to the English speaking world.
UBM shares the good news of Jesus by means of outreach teams. Each summer they operate about 90 missions around the UK, the Republic of Ireland and continental Europe.
Beach Missions reach families by means of a lively daytime programme on the beach, with bible stories, all geared to the needs of children, parents, friends and onlookers. A range of specific family events are held in the evenings.
Our work at The Good Shepherd Project is to break the cycle of poverty, violence and despair which ensnares children and young people from the shanty towns of Brazil known as ‘favelas’.
Founded in 1993, The Good Shepherd Project is a UK registered charity supporting the Brazilian charity Projeto Bom Pastor. Projeto Bom Pastor provides education, care, skills-training, nutrition and healthcare to children at risk. Operating in areas of high social deprivation, the charity seeks to protect children from exposure to drug, alcohol, physical and sexual abuse that permeates these impoverished communities. They also work in the community, tackling root causes of these issues.
