Missions

 

Hillcrest Baptist Church is committed to Missions because of the Great Commission given by our Lord Jesus to His followers in Matt 28:18-20

We believe that sending missionaries out into the world to share the Gospel is the responsibility of every believer either:

• directly, by going into the mission field personally, or 

• indirectly by entrusting some of their God-given resources (i.e. time, talents, finances, prayers) to missionaries and missionary teams who carry out the Great Commission in foreign fields on their behalf.

At Hillcrest Baptist Church, a predetermined portion of all our giving to the church goes towards supporting missionaries and mission-minded ministries across the world.

We also support local mission ministries in our own communities in the form of church plants in rural areas, ministry to orphans and to the severely disabled.

We also send out our own short term missions (STM) teams to work alongside the missionaries we support and have recently sent our very first missionary into the field.

It is our prayer that the Lord would us as we endeavour to be faithful in fulfilling His Commission both locally and abroad.
