Our Mission Agency – Baptist International Missions Inc.
BIMI had humble beginnings. In 1960 seven missionaries from the former Congo Gospel Mission joined with Baptist International Missions in addition to eight other missionary candidates. Since then the work has steadily matured as a testimony to Godís faithfulness and grace. We rejoice in reports of many thousands of lives changed by the Gospel of Christ. Over 3,000 churches have been established in various parts of the world. These churches operate day schools, youth camps, and Bible schools and colleges that reach and train nationals to lead tomorrow's church.
INTEGRITY characterizes the financial services of BIMI. We operate as a tax exempt organization through which monetary contributions, materials or properties can be channeled. BIMI provides both the contributor and the missionary with gift receipts, progress checks, and speakers who are prepared to challenge assemblies afresh with the Word of God. BIMI furnishes their missionaries with a legal basis on which to operate in most countries, a liaison with potential supporting churches, an accounting of monthly support levels, information services and counsel concerning the country in which they intend to serve.
BIMI funds are raised primarily through independent Baptist churches that are involved in Faith Promise giving for missions. Occasionally grants and gifts from individuals, corporations, or trusts are received. These gifts are invested in projects and ministries of Kingdom value both in the United States and abroad.
