MISSIONS

Engaging People with the Gospel

LBC Missions Philosophy

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
  • 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. We have trips scheduled throughout 2018 and there is something for everyone. Click the links below to see more information about our upcoming trips.

The experience helped me to overcome my tendency to be timid and see people, not as strangers but as brothers and sisters in Christ or as people who need Christ.

Topeka

I really enjoyed reaching out to the community and praying for them.  I saw the focus of my days as so much more than my “daily routine” because God has a purpose and plan for my life.  I loved being part of a team of believers from Lenexa Baptist that wanted to serve Him.

When you submit yourself to God and express the desire to serve, He can use you for His purpose, His plan and His glory to reach others and you also receive the blessing
