For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. – Mark 10:45
Jesus, the Son of Man, served humanity supremely through his death on the cross, paying the ransom for our freedom to be friends with God.
And so we seek to serve people by sharing the good news of Jesus to our friends and neighbours – and those further afield.
Vision of BTPC Overseas Missions
To grow as a church, in our understanding of God’s Global mission plan and in working with God to bring His Gospel to the ends of the world.
As a church, we participate in God’s overseas missions work by
- Missions themed Sundays where we learn more about the mission and heartbeat of God from the Bible.
- Inviting missionaries to share at our church between services about their journey in missions and how God is working amongst the nations.
- Missions related events have been or are being conducted throughout the year (i.e. Amazing Missionary Race, Partnering with OMF to run Take Flight program)
- We partner God’s servants in countries in Indonesia and Vietnam and we organise monthly and yearly trips to teach and encourage our brothers and sisters-in-Christ.
- Missions Prayer focus on various nations and people groups through corporate prayer on Sundays using various media forms and presentations.
- Special Missions Prayer Meetings are held periodically where missionaries are invited to share in person or via Skype and held at a church member’s home.
- Other than sending out short term teams to the overseas mission’s fields, we are working towards long term partnerships in the overseas mission’s field.
