Serving others & spreading the gospel
to the ends of the Earth.

The Bible repeatedly states that God's purpose is to call to Himself people from every tribe, tongue, nation, and language through belief in Jesus as Savior and repentance of sins. He alone is worthy of this glory!

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14 ESV 

In the Gospels, Jesus commissionsHis followers to participate in the mission of His Kingdom. This mission is not reserved for a select few, the professional pastors, or the spiritually elite. This mission was originally entrusted to a handful of His followers and continues to be the torch that the church carries today.

Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. 2 Corinthians 5:20 ESV 

At Longview Heights Baptist Church, we desire to labor FOR HIS KINGDOM. As we magnify Jesus, we desire to multiply the Gospel, and make a difference in our community. We labor to show that the Kingdom of God has come into our own hearts, into our family, into our city, and into the nations of the world. We desire to fulfill the command of the Great Commission to make disciples of all peoples. Missions is not a ministry of the church that we "do"- Missions is why we exist. We labor with the foundation of Christ that every nation, tribe, tongue, and language would worship Jesus. 

"After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothes in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice,'Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!'" Revelation 7:9-10

mission convictions

At Longview Heights, whether we are involved in our church, locally in our city, domestically in the United States, or around the world, we hold to these convictions:

•  Our passion for God's glory fuels our burden for all people to know Jesus 
•  Prayer is a vital component of all mission endeavors 
•   Great Commission fulfillment is the responsibility of the local church and every believer has a role to play
•   Within a team context, all short term work is a critical component of long term strategy 
•   Longview's goal in cross-cultural ministry is the multiplication of disciples and churches through the training of indigenous believers, with a high emphasis on unreached people groups 
•   Theology matters when multiplying disciples and churches because what we believe dictates how we behave 
•   We will seek to engage spiritual, social, and economic needs within our community 
•   We will value and engage indigenous cultures and contextualize our approach without compromising the Gospel message 
•   We will seek to partner with, not compete with, like-minded churches and mission agencies in accomplishing God's mission 

Our strategy includes work in these areas:
•   Entry
•   Evangelism
•   Discipleship
•   Leadership Development (Missionary Support)
