BMBC’s Plan for Missions
Who’s your One
God has entrusted us with His Word to share with the World
He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” And when he had said these things, as they were looking on, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight. And while they were gazing into heaven as he went, behold, two men stood by them in white robes, and said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven.”
Gospel saturation everywhere-
Remember songs like: You better take the Lord with you everywhere you go. In the streets , in the towns, highways, byways. .
The saints had the right idea of taking the Gospel everywhere you go. This is precisely what Jesus tells the disciples: Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.
As the Book of Acts flows- we see them do exactly what the Lord Jesus says -Jerusalem Acts 1-7, Judea and Samaria Acts 8-12, Uttermost parts Acts 13-28
They took the Words of Jesus seriously, we can too. We have been given the Great commission to spread the good news as you are going.
So, whatever your occupation, wherever you live, whatever tax bracket you are in. . . . followers of Jesus- MUST spread the Good news.
social media, email, texts, groupme
tim keller in his thought provoking Book Preaching says this: Preaching is not just confined to a 30-45 minute sermon by a preacher from the pulpit; rather preaching can also be done through Blogs, coffee tables.
Yes- Pulpits, COffee tables, and online (blogs social media)
Thinking through preaching in this way frees us up to be about spreading the Gospel
Pulpit preaching is vital and important- so we gather under the word together, then we scatter everywhere else.
Coffee Tables- represents everywhere you are. I realize the pandemic took away some of our coffee shop flow but it is a very important preaching place.
Social Media- the ends of the earth
Billions on social media

follow me as i follow Christ
1.Love God and others
“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
2. have eternal perspective
The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers.
Beloved, I urge you as sojourners and exiles to abstain from the passions of the flesh, which wage war against your soul.
