We believe that missions is “the work of the Church in reaching across cultural, religious, ethnic, and geographic barriers to advance the work of making disciples of all nations.”* It is sending people to cross these barriers to preach the Gospel to those who otherwise would never hear, because the Church is not established in their culture, so that they might believe.*
A vital part of making disciples of all nations is seeing mature, reproducing churches established among every people group. We carry out our goal of establishing and strengthening churches in areas of spiritual need through sending Faith Bible members whose calling, character, and competence we have affirmed, and through partnering with indigenous workers with whom we can maintain relational accountability.
Psalm 96:3 “Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples."
Missionaries & Ministries Faith Bible Church Supports
Possibilities Africa is a ministry started to equip pastors in rural African communities for holistic transformation of their communities. This is implemented through a plan where Possibilities Africa recruits, equips, and partners with rural pastors and their churches to enable them to provide spiritual leadership for their churches and communities, promote the development of income-generating activities by providing training and seed capital in order to alleviate handouts-generated poverty, and to prepare, through mentorship and discipleship, their children and youth to live holistic Christian lives.

Africa and Asia
Across the globe, Christ is raising up indigenous workers for His harvest field! Global Assist is participating in the Great Commission by providing needed resources including financial support, leadership training, strategic planning, budget planning, prayer, and encouragement to indigenous global ministry partners. These partners are presenting the Gospel, discipling new believers and developing home/village churches among the unreached people groups of their regions. Learn more, here.
Luke and Denise Johnson
Luke and Denise serve with SIM in Thailand, a predominantly Buddhist country with only .5% of the population evangelical Christian. In a country that is home to 77 least-reached people groups, SIM Thailand’s vision statement is “By faith we see the unreached of Thailand authentically responding to the Gospel and being discipled into biblically-based, community transforming churches that engage in mission.” Luke and Denise’s roles are supporting the larger team through member care, health care assistance, training of Thai Christians, and office administration.
International Gospel Ministries
Terry and Lorie Lingel oversee International Gospel Ministries. They split their time between their home in Idaho and Mexico, where they bring the gospel to lost people through evangelistic outreaches, support local pastors, and serve the poor.
Eric and his wife Adriana, Mexican nationals, also serve with IGM. God opened new doors of ministry for IGM when Eric was falsely accused and imprisoned for four years and four months. Previous to Eric’s incarceration, this prison had never allowed Bibles within their facility. During this time, God moved in mighty ways so that IGM was able to place over 1000 Bibles in that prison, and Eric was able to disciple many new believers. Following Eric’s release, IGM’s prison ministry has continued to expand through evangelism and discipleship in additional prisons and rehab facilities multiple times each week.
Peggy Warren serves with Ethnos360, living in Chihuahua, Mexico from 2005 to 2020. Ethnos360 is in Mexico to train Latin missionaries, to teach Spanish to missionaries, and to plant self-supporting, reproducing churches among the indigenous people groups of Mexico. They work with local churches, raising awareness of the need to spread the gospel message in Mexico and around the world.
Lincoln is quickly becoming a global city. Over the past three decades, Lincoln has been a favorite relocation destination for refugees because of its stable job market and family-friendly atmosphere. Represented among these are over twenty ethnic groups without consistent gospel witness in their own language, either in their homelands or here. This presents a tremendous opportunity to share the Gospel with people who otherwise may never hear! We support two couples working full-time to bring the gospel to members of our refugee community. One couple, serving with Christar, is working with Arabic speakers from Muslim, Yazidi, Christian, and Sabean backgrounds. The other is seeking to plant a church among the Middle Eastern and North African population and is also ministering to Persians.
