Here at Mount Pleasant we give annually to the Cooperative Program, International Mission Board, North American Mission Board and various other Missions Groups. Over 15% of annual donations go to spread the Gospel through our various missions partnerships.
In 1925, the Southern Baptist Convention established the Cooperative Program. The Cooperative Program – CP Missions – enables all Southern Baptists to work together to support missions efforts world-wide.
The International Mission Board, support 5,000 plus missionaries in different countries. As a result of the work of the IMB, hundreds of thousands of new believers are baptized each year outside of North America.
The North American Mission Board sends out thousands of missionaries each year and supports church planting efforts on our “home soil”. Hundreds of thousands of people are baptized each year as a result of individual Southern Baptists becoming Partners in the Harvest.
Other partnerships include:
The Lakota Indians, Shiloh’s Shelter, Clean Water Project, Food Pantry, Crisis Pregnancy Center, Soup Kitchen.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:34-35)
We partner with schools, businesses, government, civic organizations and other area churches to help meet the needs of our community and be faithful servants of the Gospel to our neighbors. We love our city and we love it’s people.
