The purpose of Open Door Baptist Missions is to promote the work of Christ in regions that have been closed to the gospel or that presently have little or no gospel witness. We strive to accomplish this task while the Lord has set before us an open door (Revelation 3:8). This is done through the collective support of local churches.
We stand ready to help fundamental, Bible-believing churches place their missionary candidates on the field of God’s call. It is our desire to give the Gospel to those who have never heard.
We endeavor to partner with those who are already laboring in the harvest fields and help train those who will be the leaders of tomorrow.
Monthly Missionary Updates
► On Feb. 11th, Seth & Amy Meyers returned with their children to South Africa. Their sending church and another supporting church brought them home in December. During this time of recovery they took care of family needs, sought wise counsel, & prayed. God’s peace has allowed them to return to South Africa. They are living 30 minutes from their prior home while continuing to build Elim Baptist Church.
► Many challenges face churches in Asia. ODBM missionaries tell about the difficulties that many Asian young people encounter. Asians daily face repercussions such as family renunciation, insufficient employment, and insufficient education credentials. Pray for wisdom and sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s leading in building relationships to encourage, unite, and edify believers.
From the Director
During my daily Bible reading, I just concluded reading the life story of Joseph (Genesis 37–41). It reminded me that God has a plan for each of His children. The plans that God has for us sometimes require life’s trials similar to those of Joseph. Joseph experienced his brothers’ anger and jealousy, the temptation from Potiphar’s wife, unjust accusations, imprisonment, embarrassment, and the forgetfulness of the cupbearer. All of these trials did not effect Joseph’s relationship with God. Many saw that God was with Joseph. God used these difficulties to prepare Joseph to save the nation of Israel. Not once did Joseph complain or question God about the fairness or justice of his situation. Are you facing trials today? Can others see the Lord is with you? Are you sticking to God’s plan? What is your attitude?
