The Lord Jesus said in Matthew 28:19-20, “Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you…”
Salem Baptist Church adheres to the Great Commission of “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15, King James). We have a mission to perform: taking the gospel into all the world. The mission field begins at home, right here in Goochland. It extends to the place where we work and where we play. It also involves taking the message of Jesus Christ throughout the nation and into distant lands, where people speak different languages and have different customs.
The missionaries we support we know personally. We know their manner of life and the work they do. As we give to these mission works, we are taking part in fulfilling this great commission Jesus gave to his Church.
