Home Mission Board Vision Statement

The Home Mission Board of the National Baptist Convention, USA, Inc. in "Solidarity with the Savior" seeks to witness to the Mercy and Might of Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit and to the glory of God. We fulfill the vision through biblical messages, ministry and mission education. In keeping with our Master's Mercy and Might, we believe that Jesus Christ's ministry was restorative, reconciling, and redemptive by nature. This threefold ministry is therefore holistic, dealing with every facet of human life. Our priorities for holistic ministry include the following foci: spiritual, mental, physical, social, finance and the environment. Only by addressing human life holistically can we be faithful in empowering others to realize the abundant life for which Jesus Christ died and arose. We partner with the constituency of the National Baptist Convention, its State Presidents, District Moderators, Pastors, and other clergy to provide relevant resources. These resources are designed to assist in the establishment, and/or development of Home Mission Ministry in cooperation with churches across local, global, multicultural and multiethnic territories.
