We answer your big questions..
Being an ally of Jesus. Joining in what God is already doing and wants to accomplish in the world.
What does mission look like?
This can take many forms! There is no template for mission. However, mission is always living and acting in a way that reflects the Kingdom of God; leading others into His eternal love.
What does NZBMS have to do with it?
We actively encourage and support the Baptist churches of NZ to be a part of God’s worldwide kingdom life.
Does mission have to be overseas?
Nope! Mission is in your backyard, everyday, if you want it to be. Our mission always leads us to cross boundaries to share the gospel and live out the Kingdom with others. Mission can be cross-cultural and sometimes trans-national.
Is global mission colonialist?
In short, God's mission is never colonialist. However, this is a question that all mission agencies must address. Sadly, we know that much modern mission has been colonialist. We lament this reality and with a humble posture know we are transformed in our engagement with Christians cross-culturally. What we seek is mutual transformation in the life of the Kingdom. We also know that Christ has done incredible and invaluable things through those with missional hearts, and that there is certainly much to celebrate from the past.
Do I have to be a Baptist to be involved with NZBMS?
You don’t need to be a Baptist to support our global team. If you're interested in becoming a global worker, you do need to love Jesus, have a desire to act, and have grown through community engagement.
