Beacon International Baptist Mission is a ministry of Eastside Baptist Church. Our purpose is three fold:
- To honor our Lord Jesus Christ in carrying out the Great Commission
- To assist local churches in the task of getting their missionaries to the field as quickly as possible
- To help missionaries get to the field, stay on the field, and return to the field
God’s Word is clear that missions starts and stops with the local church. When a local church partners with BIBM to send their missionary to the field, a triangle is formed that includes THE LOCAL CHURCH, THE MISSIONARY, and BIBM. This leaves the authority with the pastor and the local church. BIBM neither ordains, commissions or disciplines; this is all the churches responsibility. BIBM serves sending churches and their missionaries by handling many logistical tasks such as processing funds, obtaining visas, establishing NGO’s, and support with other legal situations that missionaries face. Simply put, BIBM is the necessary LINK between the local church and the missionary family on the field.
The work is never ending! All that IS happening with BIBM, all that HAS happened with BIBM and all that WILL happen with BIBM is because of Eastside Baptist Church’s vision for world missions! We are honored to carry Eastside’s Banner around the world with Beacon International Baptist Mission.
