To serve East Midland Baptists in Mission
We are a network of approximately 150 churches, seeking to serve God’s kingdom, enabling all to do everything possible to fulfil God's mission and ministry within the communities in which they are placed. We believe that the local church is the primary way in which God’s mission to the world is fulfilled and as such, healthy churches are crucial to seeing God at work across the region. Therefore, as an Association we are committed to growing healthy churches through offering support in five priority areas: Inspiring, Equipping, Pioneering, Caring and Partnering.
As part of the outworking of this vision we seek to invest in missional leadership telling good news stories and creating networks which enable effective missional communities where everyone is welcome. These communities need not just be the local church but other places where the church – Christ’s people – can live out their faith and share God’s grace for all.
