Prayer Baptist Missions International (PBMI) was organized on February 14, 1989 for the purpose of bringing together Bible-believing, Independent Baptist churches and like-minded missionaries who desire to fulfill God's command to evangelize the lost and establish Baptist churches around the world.
God sent His Son into the world to provide salvation for all men. After completing His earthly ministry, He commissioned the local church to go to the uttermost part of the earth and preach the Gospel to every creature. As a sending agent, PBMI's purpose is to assist and cooperate with local churches and missionaries to complete this task.
International missions is an exciting and rewarding ministry. At the same time, it can be difficult ministry because of the diversities in countries and cultures. Therefore, we endeavor to draw upon Biblical principles and practical experiences to help other missionaries in the work God has called them to do.
Fulfilling the Great Commission, by preaching the Gospel, is the greatest work a person can do. Prayer Baptist Missions International's purpose is to help God's servants fulfill His will in their call to missions.
We believe in the verbal, plenary, inspiration and infallibility of Scripture. We believe the Word of God is divinely preserved in the King James Bible for English speaking people.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons - the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is eternal and was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary, a virgin. Jesus is truly God and truly man.
We believe man was created in the image of God. Man sinned, thereby incurring not only physical but spiritual death as well.
We believe Jesus Christ died for our sins as our representative and substitutionary sacrifice. All who believe on Jesus with sorrow and repentance and receives Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Jesus, in His ascension into heaven, and in His presence there as our High Priest and Advocate.
We believe in the premillenial, pretribulational, and imminent return of Jesus Christ.
We believe all who receive by faith, Jesus Christ as personal Savior, are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become the children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just unto everlasting life and in the resurrection of the lost unto everlasting punishment in Hell.
We believe the local church, consisting of born-again, baptized believers, having Christ as its only head, was instituted by God and commissioned by Him to evangelize the world.
We believe Scriptural baptism is the immersion of born again people only; that it is the outward sign of an inward belief. Baptism and the Lord's Supper are the only ordinances to be observed by the local Church.
Prayer Baptist Missions operates solely as a faith mission promoting the Scriptural principals of faith-promise missions giving. Therefore, all our missionaries, including our director, office staff, and field representatives, are required to raise all support necessary for their living and ministry expenses. The office staff works diligently to ensure that all monies received for each missionary are deposited as designated. We do not require our missionaries to support the home office financially although they may do so at their own discretion.
We believe God still calls His people to the great work of world evangelization. PBMI looks for servants who are committed to praying, preaching, and planting churches with the power of the Holy Spirit evidenced in their lives.
If God has called you to serve in missions work, consider PBMI as your sending agency. With the Lord's help, we will do all we can to help you have a successful ministry of winning souls and planting churches around the world.
If your church needs help with its missions program, whether in a mission conference or special missions services, we have missionaries and preachers available to assist you.
