What we do

Our vision

Together we are working for a world where all can experience faith in Christ and the abundant life only he provides.

Our mission

BMS World Mission mobilises people, resources and skills across the Global Church to share the good news of Jesus and practical hope where they’re needed most.

We work hand-in-hand with global organisations, mission workers and supporters to:

  • share Christ and nurture disciples

  • alleviate suffering and injustice 

  • enable all God’s people to play their part in his mission

Partnership in God’s strength

How we work

Since our founding in 1792, God has worked through BMS supporters, partners and workers to save and transform lives. We’re over 230 years old, and our Baptist history has laid a rich foundation from which we still learn, grow and take inspiration today. We believe that every follower of Jesus has a calling to mission, including you.

Partnership shapes all that we do – whether we’re called to pray, give or serve, either overseas or in our local contexts. Learn more about the difference you can make through BMS' three strategy areas, Heart for the Gospel, Hope for the World and Help for the Journey.

Inspired by Christ

Our values

As a Christian charity, we’re guided in all we do by the inspiration we take from the life of Jesus Christ.

As we work, we’re committed to:

  • Walking humbly

In humility consider others as more important than yourselves. (Philippians 2)

  • Bringing our best

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart. ​​​​​​(Colossians 3)

  • Embracing change

See, I am doing a new thing!​​​​​​​ (Isaiah 43)

The Global Church is growing at a phenomenal rate and through your support BMS World Mission is being transformed by God to play its part in response to this shift
Kang-San Tan, General Director of BMS World Mission
