FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH
Faith Baptist Church is alive and well. A vibrant body of believers attend each week and are actively involved in many different outreaches.
IMANI BOY'S HOME
There are currently four boys who were orphaned at young ages in our boys' home. We are striving to provide them with a godly home in which to live.
VOICE OF LIFE RADIO
Our newest ministry is Voice of Life Radio. We went on the air in May of 2018.
FAITH BAPTIST COLLEGE
Faith Baptist College is aimed at equipping our church members with a more extensive knowledge of the Bible.
IMANI FEEDING CENTER
In February of 2018, we started the Imani feeding center. Currently, we have about 20 children whom we feed two meals a day 6 days a week.
Our church has planted three churches in Dumlia, Kaseke, & Maguu, Tanzania. We are praying that God would allow us to start many more churches throughout Tanzania.
The Lord has opened some incredible doors of opportunity here. These events are held annually or bi-annually, and literally thousands of people are reached in a short period of time. Churches and individuals from the states partner with us for these events. If you would like to be a part of one of these, please contact us.
TANZANIAN STADIUM CRUSADE
Each year, we rent out the stadium in our city and hold a crusade. Partnering with churches from the US, we have seen thousands come to know Christ.
MEDICAL MISSIONS OUTREACH
Partnering with Medical Missions Outreach (MMO), we hold a week-long clinic staffed by doctors and nurses from the states.
Partnering with Hays Pure Water for All and through the generosity of TBM, we are able to share clean water with villages, hospitals, and schools while also sharing with them the Water of Life.
Each week, the Faith Baptist Church is involved in a wide variety of different outreaches. The size of these range from just a handful to hundreds of people.
Our deaf ministry is run by a young couple in our church who learned Swahili sign-language. Each week, the service is translated into sign language. We also teach Bible in a deaf school weekly as well as have a church soccer team for the deaf.
PUBLIC SCHOOL MINISTRY
Our public school ministry consists of 6 classes in 6 different public schools. Each week, one of our church members goes to one of these local schools to teach Bible. We have complete freedom to teach the Bible and give the Gospel.
Each year, we will have several evangelistic outreaches. We have had meetings members' houses, shown the Jesus film, and sponsored soccer matches - all in order to get the Gospel to as many as possible.
We have seen God use soccer many times as a tool to share the Gospel as well as to bring people to church. Each year, we have a soccer Sunday where we invite soccer teams to our church from all over our city. We also have a church soccer team.
Each Saturday, dozens of church members meet with us at the church for a time of prayer followed by visitation. We load up in vehicles and go into a neighborhood to share the Good News of the Gospel. The teens also go out on Thursdays.
MEN'S & WOMEN'S MINISTRY
There is always something for both men and women to get involved in at our church. We hold regular men's and women's outreaches. The women enjoy a monthly prayer breakfast.
The kids and teenagers have weekly classes as well conferences and camps. We have weekly Bible clubs in various neighborhoods as well as several 1-day vacation Bible clubs throughout the year for the children.
ENGLISH SUNDAY SCHOOL
On Sunday mornings, Rachel teaches an English Sunday school at our church. Forty or more English-speaking children from all over the world attend. This is a wonderful opportunity for our own children as well as other English-speaking children.
PARTNER WITH US!
We could not do what we do if it were not for a host of churches and individuals standing behind us and partnering with us financially. The opportunities here are endless, and we need your help! Would you prayerfully consider if God would have you come along beside us and invest in the work here?
CURRENT NEEDS |
Below are a few projects for which we are currently praying for the Lord's provision. Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us for the completion of one of these projects? We can accept donations via PayPal or through our mission agency FBMI.
Our church is growing, ministries are being added, things are happening here in Morogoro, Tanzania. In this next phase of our ministry, we are really stepping out by faith to ask God to enable us to build a 2 story building on our church property. Right now, we have an open-air auditorium where our Bible college meets, as well as two thatched-roof open air classrooms for children and we have no offices. Staff meetings take place in a thatched roof little “hut.” This 2-story building would serve many purposes, including a place for our Bible College, Sunday school classrooms, offices, a prophet’s chamber for visiting pastors, and we even have future plans for a TV ministry and printing ministry. All of this is so that we may reach more for the cause of Christ. Would you consider helping us see this dream become a reality?
ONGOING EXPENSES FOR RADIO
With the launch of our new radio station, we have incurred additional monthly expenses. We are in need of some partners to help us with these expenses. Whether a monthly donation or one-time gift, your support would be greatly appreciated.
Currently, our church owns two minivans and a small bus, but we still rent several vans each Sunday to bring people to church. We have been praying that the Lord would open the door for us to purchase one or two more minivans.
