The Missions Outreach is a strong heartbeat of the Lebanon Valley Bible Church ministries. By God’s faithful provision, a missions climate has been established that has enabled the church to have an extensive global emphasis. It is not just another program or tradition but an obedience to our Lord’s timeless instruction in His Great Commission as given in Matthew 28:19-20. As we are told in the book of Revelation, one day in heaven there will stand before God a great multitude of all tribes, tongues, and nations offering praises to our Creator and Heavenly Father. Until that day, the missions ministry of LVBC will continue to press on.
We are committed to the outreaches God has enabled us to be involved with both locally and cross-culturally. We are very blessed to partner with missionaries involved in church planting, Bible translation, team leadership, missions mobilization and development, training of nationals, support works, and humanitarian efforts that promote evangelism.
Recognizing the power of prayer, LVBC commits to prayer as well as financial support of our missionary families. One of our missionaries has said, “Prayer is the backbone of our work. I am counting on your faithful prayers.” “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” in James 5:16 reminds us that there is much power in prayer.
A very busy Missions Committee coordinates this effort guided by a well-defined missions policy and under the auspices of a like-minded Board of Elders. Through the years, world evangelism has played a key role as a focus in this church. It is our desire to see God raise up more workers from this local body with a passion for global ministry.
