Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ Matthew 28:18-20
At Hertford Baptist Church, not only do we want to be His witnesses in our everyday lives, but also to encourage, support and send people God has called to Christian outreach both in this country and around the world.
We support a number of people who have been called to work overseas. These ‘Mission Partners’ come from a variety of backgrounds; they include current members of HBC sent out by the church, as well as people connected with the church either as a family member or having served with the church in the past. In addition to this, our partners may be church members who lead charities, as well as those working for organisations we support locally or through twinning relationships.
Whilst we cannot identify many of the individuals we support, we have links with BMS World Mission, SIM, OMF International, MECO International, Latin Link, the Mara Rianda Charitable Trust and others. As a church we also support a variety of charities who engage in relief work throughout the world, such as Christian Aid and Tearfund.
