The Missions Ministry of Bay Leaf Baptist Church will look at the following to determine ministry direction, and partnerships.
• PRAYER The Lord desires for us to seek Him in prayer, and to follow the direction of His will. Prayer Teams for each region and ministry focus are critical for empowerment for ministry.
• STRATEGIC We will seek to minister in multiple areas of need, but will focus on those areas where there is little or no access to the Gospel.
• TEAM Each mission or ministry task will be accomplished through a team approach. This team will include lay members and staff.
• EQUIPPING/TRAININGWe will provide the training necessary to equip the Body of Christ with the tools and resources necessary to accomplish the task they are called to do.
• RELATIONSHIPS We will only partner with those individuals or ministries who have a similar faith and practice.
• NETWORKING We believe in working together with others who have similar goals and strategies of taking the Gospel to those who have never heard.
• FOCUS Our focus will be to take the Gospel to those who have never heard it; disciple those who accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior; and establish culturally appropriate churches.
