FROM THE PASTOR ..

Sharing Our Faith

Our Lord prepared the Apostles to share the message of salvation in “Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8) God’s gift of the Holy Spirit empowered these men to teach, heal, and share the Lord with people who were very different from them. We commonly refer to cross-cultural ministry as “missions.”

American Baptists are privileged to support missionaries and their work throughout the world. International Ministries, also known as the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, works cross-culturally to invite people to become disciples of Jesus Christ and to proclaim, through both word and deed, God’s reign of justice, peace and abundant life for all creation.

On July 15 we will be visited by missionary Dan Chetti who serves with his wife, Sarah, in Beirut, Lebanon. Dan teaches at the Arab Baptist Theological Seminary, and Sarah has a ministry with migrant women. They are both touching the lives of former Muslims, preparing people to share the faith with others.

Here in Cincinnati we live in a growing, diverse, global community where people from various cultures and backgrounds live together. We may be instruments of God’s message, sharing the Lord with the people we meet. Missionaries like Dan and Sarah remind us to be ready to share God’s Word with others, “…in season and out of season….” (II Tim. 4:2) Not everyone we meet knows Jesus, but everyone we meet needs to know Him. Let’s share the Lord together!
