What Is the Board of International Ministries?
The American Baptist Board of International Ministries began its pioneer mission work in 1814 in Burma, and today works in Asia, Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas serving more than 1,800 long-term and short-term missionaries in more than 70 countries. Its central mission is to help people come to faith in Jesus, grow in their relationship with God, and change their worlds through the power of the Spirit.
