Cross Cultural Mission
Hills Baptist takes seriously God’s call to be his witness to the ends of the earth, and has a rich history of support for overseas mission work. Through the years we have supported a number of families called by God to cross-cultural mission.
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and know, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Hills Baptist Church, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, seeks to encourage an atmosphere in which our members of all ages will be stimulated, motivated and educated to hear and respond to the call of cross-cultural mission on our lives.
While we support people from Hills Baptist to work overseas we understand best practise principles of supporting local Indigenous workers in both church planting and working with the poor. Our current missions and missionary support reflects this balance.
The Cross Cultural Missions Team offers specialised guidance, teaching and support to those of our number who are directly involved in cross-cultural mission, to those who are sensing a personal call to cross cultural ministry, tho those who are in training and to those who have returned from active mission involvement.
