The mission field needs Christians, and Christians also need the mission field. Every believer has the responsibility and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to be a witness for Christ in word and deed. Regardless of age, every Christian has a role to play in local, national, and international missions and outreach.
STBC’s Missions and Outreach philosophy is holistic in its approach to sharing the gospel. The gospel is the “good news” that God has made a way to forgive sinners of all of their sins through the sacrificial death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. A holistic approach to sharing the gospel expresses care for the whole of a person: mind, body, soul, and spirit. The social aspect of the gospel causes us to learn about, address, and help to change the conditions contributing to despair for individuals and communities.
