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
►Scott & Shelley Krystowiak rejoice that the More Than Conquerors Bible Institute continues to grow, making disciples of inmates in US Prisons. Over 510 students have enrolled in the past 4 years. The Bible Institute teaches and trains inmates in over 80 prisons in 20 states. Many students are applying what they have learned to evangelize and disciple other inmates. Pray for the Krystowiak’s monthly support needs.
► Don & Betty Ross continue to serve the Lord through Film Evangelism. Don recently travelled to Haiti to post-dub three evangelistic films into Haitian Creole. They partnered with Haitian “voice-actors” to produce the films to serve as creative tools to communicate the Gospel to Haitians lost in darkness. Pray that the films will be completed soon under budget and used to honor and glorify God.
From the Director
The Apostle Paul described himself as a servant to Christ (Rom. 1:1), a servant to righteousness (Rom. 6:18), and a servant to others (1 Cor. 9:19). The call to discipleship is a call to servanthood. A disciple must first surrender himself to Christ. He must be willing to go wherever Christ leads, and even be willing to lay down his life for the cause of Christ. Disciples must also be distinct from the worldly system and be consecrated to righteousness. Their actions, motives, and attitudes throughout the week must back up their words on Sunday. Finally, genuine disciples of Christ prove their discipleship by loving and serving others (John 13:35). As we pray for our missionaries to answer the call of discipleship on the mission field, may we also sacrificially commit ourselves to serving Christ by loving righteousness and loving others at home.
