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 the whole year and there is something for everyone. scroll down to  see more information about our upcoming trips.
