WHAT IS GRACE BAPTIST MISSION GHANA?

In 1982, Dr. Durance Bartholomew was greatly burdened for the people of Ghana through the vision of Rev. Noah Quarshie. The ministry of Out-Reach Ministries (ORM) was then begun to help the church in Ghana to reach her own people for Christ. One major ministry of Out-Reach has been the provision of Bibles to new believers world wide. Grace Baptist Mission-Ghana (GBM-G) is a subsidiary of ORM, Inc. and Shalom Indigenous Foundation,(SIF) our Ghanaian counterpart. The Mission is established to meet a specific need, i.e. to make a significant contribution in the advancement of the gospel in Ghana through the training of nationals for the establishment and growth of strong Bible centered and Christ centered churches with a duel emphasis on evangelism and teaching. We desire to place emphasis upon reaching churches who believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, as revealed in the scriptures. We will be concentrating on Ghana with the aim of sending missionaries from Ghana to other countries. This is a bi-racial missionary agency, so we intend to recruit and send forth missionaries without regard to race, color or national background.

Our cause: God Glorified in Ghana

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?

Grace Baptist Missions-Ghana believes:

  • In the verbal and plenary inspiration of the original manuscripts of the Old and the New Testaments, which constitute the inerrant Word of God as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

  • In the Triune God: One God eternally existing in the three equal Persons-Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • In the deity, virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection and imminent, pre-tribulation and pre-millennial coming of Christ.

  • In the personality of the Holy Spirit by whom believers are called, regenerated, baptized into Christ, indwelt, dealed and filled for service. We do not believe that speaking in tongues is indispensable evidence of the filling of the Holy Spirit.

  • In the direct creation of the Universe and man by God apart from any process of evolution.

  • In the fall, total depravity and guilt of the human race in Adam, which for man's salvation necessitated the sovereign, divinely initiated deliverance of the sinner by the grace of God in Christ.

  • In the eternal salvation of all individuals who put their faith in Christ, whose blood was shed for the remission of sins.

  • In the unity of all true believers in the church which is the Body of Christ of which He is the sole head.

  • In the local church as a company of baptized believers, independent and self-governing, which should fellowship with other churches of like faith and order. It is the responsibility of the local church to observe the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper, edify the believers and evangelize the World. We believe that the only biblical mode of believer's baptism is immersion, and that it is to be administered in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The ordinance of baptism is for believers only and it is a pre-requisite for church membership. The officers of the New Testament are Pastors/Elders and Deacons.

  • In the priesthood of all believers and the right of every individual to have direct dealings with God, We believe in individual soul liberty.

  • In the obedience to the biblical command to separate from the worldliness and ecclesiastical apostasy unto God.

  • In the separation of church and state with each believer having responsibility to both.

  • In the personal existence of angels, Satan and demons.

  • In the bodily resurrection, immortality and pre-tribulation rapture of all believers at Christ's imminent coming.

  • In the bodily resurrection and judgement of unbelievers after the millennial reign of Christ.

  • In the eternal life and blessedness of all believers in heaven and the eternal punishment of all unbelievers in the lake of fire.

WHERE WE ARE?

Grace Baptist Mission-Ghana is currently ministering in Ghana, West Africa, working through Shalom Indigenous Foundation. The College and the high school are located on a beautiful 5.4-acre campus. It is two miles from the Accra International Airport and one and half miles from the Atlantic Ocean. The Shalom Foundation also has a 40-acre farmland, twenty miles from the capital Accra. The Lord has provided these excellent facilities for the ministry.

WHAT IS OUR PURPOSE?

To make the Gospel known to Ghana. Our main thrust is to train nationals for the establishment and growth of strong Bible centered and Christ centered churches with the dual emphasis on evangelism and teaching. As the well-known evangelist and educationist, Dr. Bob Jones, Sr. put it, "To the Christian there is no difference between the secular and the sacred - all ground is holy ground, every bush is a burning bush." This conviction is the motivating force of GBM-G and SIF, as we seek to train not only pastors and other Christian workers for the church, but strong Christians for positions of leadership in business, in government, in industry, in education and other fields of endeavor. "Doing whatsoever your hands find to do as unto the Lord" The chief end of man is to glorify God. It also requires obedience and faithfulness.

OPPORTUNITIES:

We believe the field is the World. We are praying for the Lord of the harvest to send forth laborers into His harvest. We are looking for prayer and financial support, sponsors for the students and youth clubs. Internationals cannot comprehend that pastoral students can be supported for only $75.00 per month for tuition of $900.00 for the whole three year program. The tuition is $300.00 per trimester. Perhaps you would consider partnering with a Ghanaian student in this excellent educational opportunity. We long for and pray for the day, if the Lord tarries, when we shall minister on every country on the continent of Africa. We have started a high school to train our youth. We believe that they are the future leaders of Africa and must be reached while they are young for Christ. We need a principal for this school. We also need workers who have Bible Institute or Bible College training. We need those with Masters or Doctors degrees and we need a Dean for the College. We need Evangelists for the Church planting and workers with farm knowledge to help on the mission farm. Yes, we can use short-term missionaries. We need leaders who love challenge and venture with God’s vision of a lost and dying world, with a tender heart, willing hands, a servant spirit and above all, a love for God and the lost, poor, suffering and needy people of Africa and the World. Write to us about the many opportunities for service in the Lord’s vineyard. “Lift up your eyes and look on the fields that are white already for harvest”.
