MissionsCity on a Hill

"The Spirit of Christ is the spirit of missions and the nearer we get to Him the more intensely missionary we must become," Henry Martyn (1781-1812), a missionary to India.

Grace Baptist is committed to the Great Commission given by Jesus: "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. "
                                                Matthew 28:18-20City on a Hill - 2







Local missions:

Karen Missions - Grace Baptist has a missions ministry to Karen who are attending our church.  The Karen (pronounced kuh-REN) are refugees, an oppressed ethnic minority from Burma (also called Myanmar).  For over 60 years they have been displaced by violence and civil war.  The Karen come to Minnesota (through Thailand) desiring safety, freedom from persecution and a better life for their children.  Although Grace Baptist worship services are predominantly in the English language, hymns are regularly sung in both English and Karen languages.  With our Karen Missions Fund we desire to minister the love of Christ to them.  In addition, Grace Baptist is commited to helping the Karen integrate into American society; for example, English as a Second Language [ESL] classes are available for Karen adults.  Grace Baptist hopes that Karen individuals will be able to integrate into various jobs within diverse organizations of the greater Willmar community.
