Bradley Epworth Missions seeks to do the things that Jesus did by sharing the love of Jesus with a hurting and lost world. Ten percent of the Bradley Epworth tithes and offerings are set aside to support local and world wide missions, as well as send missionaries from our church all over the world.
BE Missions Committee Guidelines
Under the guidelines of Bradley Epworth's Statement of Faith, we as a Mission Committee agree that our purpose is to support those who go into all the world to make disciples, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything that Jesus commanded so that God's people would be prepared for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ. (Mat. 28:19-20 & Eph. 4:12-13)
1. Ministries whose first priority is taking the good news of Jesus Christ throughout the world, and especially countries where Christians are persecuted.
2. Individual missionaries, serving the U.S.A. or around the world, who are doing the work of the Kingdom for Christ through a recognized church or mission agency. This would also include people from our congregation going on short-term mission trips.
3. Local organizations that do the work of Christ in our community, such as South Side Mission and Peoria Rescue Mission. This could also include individuals operating under the guidance and authority of a recognized church or mission agency.
4. Any mission endeavor supported must believe that the Bible, consisting only of the Old and New Testaments, inspired by the Holy Spirit, is inerrant in the original manuscripts. It alone is the infallible and authoritative Word of God for all matters of faith, conduct and doctrine.
