Answering the Call for Evangelism

American Baptist International  Ministries (IM) was organized in 1814 by people who heard God’s call to work together “in one sacred effort” to make disciples of all nations. IM has remained faithful to that call to help people come to faith in Jesus, grow in their relationship with God and change their worlds through the power of the Spirit. 

Since 1900, the world population has more than quadrupled. Christianity likewise increased, but not at the same pace. Today some 4.7 billion people have yet to experience the fullness of God’s love through Jesus and the transforming power of God’s Spirit.

The call of Jesus to make disciples is as important today as it ever has been. Evangelism—helping people come to faith—is the first part of that process. IM’s missionaries and international partner organizations are answering the call as they tell the good news of Jesus through their words and make it visible by their actions.

In 2011-2012, IM sent 11 long-term missionaries and mobilized 527 volunteers and short-term missionaries, investing three-quarters of a million dollars in answering the call for evangelism. In 2013, 13 long-term evangelism missionaries are serving, with $790 thousand budgeted for their ministry.
