NCMO supports partnerships

August 13, 2019

There are many parts of Scripture that may seem confusing to readers, but there is one message, spoken time and time again, that couldn’t be more clear — love one another. The message whispered from Genesis to Revelation is to love God and love one another. So what does it mean to go in love?

It could mean evangelizing your next-door neighbor, or assisting in disaster-relief efforts in Haiti. It could involve sharing your medical skills in Guatemala, or volunteering at your local church’s summer VBS. And it can also mean faithfully stewarding your funds to support organizations that are committed to reaching the nations for Christ by demonstrating His love for His people.

The North Carolina Missions Offering (NCMO) helps men, women and students get involved with missions projects in North Carolina, across the United States and around the world. Partnerships through Baptists on Mission include VBS, medical outreach, evangelism, construction projects, agricultural missions and a host of other opportunities to demonstrate Christ’s love.

The message whispered from Genesis to Revelation is to love God and love one another.

Consider Armenia, the oldest Christian country in the world. Tragically, 70 years of communism destroyed the local church. But thanks to financial support, faithful prayer and a willingness to go to the nations, Christ-followers in North Carolina have been able to help Baptists of Armenia grow from a single church with just a few members to 150 churches with 6,000 members.

In 2018 alone, through the North Carolina Missions Offering, 2,239 volunteers served on 143 different teams with North American projects. Additionally, we were able to send 833 volunteers on 92 different teams with international partners.

“Keep supporting the North Carolina Missions Offering,” encourages Asatur Nahapetyan, general secretary of the Armenian Baptist Union. “You help not just those inside North Carolina and the United States, you’re helping people like us in Armenia — and many other countries. North Carolina Baptists coming to Armenia on mission since 2003 made historical changes for the life of Armenian Baptists.”

How churches and families can partner in making disciples
