Under the guidance of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and after much prayer, Prayer Baptist Missions International, Inc. was organized February 14, 1989. It is recognized as a non-profit organization and its sole purpose is to help missionaries and local independent Baptist churches with their burden to carry the gospel around the world.
Prayer Baptist Missions International acknowledges that the local Church is responsible to send out missionaries and that mission agencies exist to assist the local church in this ministry. Therefore, PBMI seeks to unite Bible-believing, independent Baptist Churches with like-minded missionaries for the sole purpose of evangelizing the lost and establishing local churches around the world with the same faith and practice.
