Missions at Foothill Bible Church

Foothill Bible Church currently supports over a dozen missionaries serving on five continents with various mission boards. Some of the ministries include church-planting, Bible translation, teaching of missionary kids, university outreach, medical work, teaching English as a second language and others. Though there are various ministries, they all share the common goal of seeing Christ’s great commission fulfilled.

The Commission

As Jesus was about to ascend into heaven, he gave His final commission to all His followers: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19).

The Reason

Desiring to fulfill this commission, one of Foothill Bible Church’s core values is: “Developing disciples to reach the nations.” Since God’s primary means of reaching the nations with the gospel and growing people in their likeness to Christ is through the local church, we seek to invest the majority of our resources in planting biblical churches around the world. Whether that means supporting a church-planting couple in Asia, sending a single woman to translate the Bible into a language without the Scriptures, or providing for a national believer to shepherd a tribal church in Africa, by God’s grace, we desire to participate in the building of His church around the world.

The Result

Why do we want to do this? Because Christ is worthy. One of the final scenes of Scripture shows the worthiness of Christ:

“And they sang a new song, saying, ‘Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.’” (Revelation 5:9, 10).

Is there any sacrifice too great in the service of this Savior? Is He not worthy of any culture shock, any poverty, any sickness, any loneliness, any betrayal?

FBC seeks to train and support men and women who will join the ranks of faithful saints who looked to their heavenly kingdom as they laid down their lives to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

“How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in Him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!’” (Romans 10:14-15)
