International Mission Board

IMB partners with churches to empower missionary teams (3,600+ missionaries) who are making disciples and multiplying churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God. More than 4,800 people groups – close to 1 billion people – still live with little or no access to the gospel. Our mission is evangelizing, discipling, and planting reproducing churches among all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission. Our vision is a multitude from every language, people, tribe, and nation knowing and worshipping our Lord Jesus Christ. We commit to obedience to the Lordship of Jesus Christ and to God’s inerrant Word. We believe Jesus Christ is God’s only provision for salvation and all people without personal faith in Him are lost and will spend eternity in hell. We seek to provide all people an opportunity to hear, understand and respond to the Gospel in their own cultural context. We evangelize through proclamation, discipling, equipping, and ministry that results in indigenous reproducing Baptist churches. We serve churches to facilitate their involvement in the Great Commission and the sending of missionaries to bring all peoples to faith in Jesus Christ. We partner with Baptists and other Christians around the world in accordance with IMB guidelines. We understand and fulfill God’s mission through God’s Word, prayer, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. Cost to operate the IMB is approximately $264 million annually – the special Lottie Moon offering given by the 47,000 SB churches annually provides approximately $154 million of this money and Cooperative Program giving provides approximately $110 million to support the IMB.
