Missions Philosophy

We affirm that God's love and offer of redemption extend to all the peoples of the earth.  It is His supreme desire to make disciples of His Son, Jesus, among all peoples of the world and to see His Church established among every tribe, tongue, and race.

We believe each Christian is personally accountable for carrying out God's plan.  Missions is not a special interest for a select group in our church, it is for all.

We also recognize that Bayview Bible Chapel is corporately responsible to carry out God's plan for the nations.  We, therefore, commit ourselves to work together in a missions program that will be an appropriate, obedient response to God's call to be involved in missions.
