The Baptist Bible Fellowship approves CHURCH PLANTING missionaries. The Commission under which local Baptist churches operate is very clear; soul winning should result in the establishment of local Baptist churches.
The Baptist Bible Fellowship believes strongly in the indigenous church principle. Every church established by a BBFI missionary should one day be:
- SELF-GOVERNING, they should have a national pastor.
- SELF-PROPAGATING, they should reproduce other local churches.
- SELF-SUPPORTING, they should be able to operate without the need of outside financial income and support
The Baptist Bible Fellowship has established stringent approval requirements in order to present missionaries who are well educated, practically experienced and spiritually mature to the churches.
The Baptist Bible Fellowship offers an opportunity to voluntarily work together with sister churches in a mutual effort WITHOUT ecclesiastical control. We are a fellowship, not a denomination. There is nothing for the local church to join.
