Missions

One of the Five Touchstones that characterize Lenexa Baptist Church is: we are Mission Driven. This means that we are a church that is: Outwardly focused; Driven to reach people in our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth; Intentionally equipped for service outside the four walls of the church; and Encouraging its members to be involved in a mission endeavor at least once a year. We are seeking to take seriously the challenge of Acts 1:8 as we advance the Gospel from our neighborhoods to the nations.
