But our church doesn’t just believe in GIVING to missions—we believe in DOING missions. We take seriously the command of our Lord in Acts 1:8 where He said, “You shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and in Samaria and to the ends of the earth.” In fact, we organize our annual mission labors according to this Scriptural outline.
Jerusalem and Judea Missions
We share God’s love with the people who are geographically closest to us with things such as RBC Camp School, Sports Camps, Graded Choirs, Cantatas, community events, Sunday School and Worship. We also participate in ministries to those in our area who have physical needs by working with Habitat for Humanity and local food pantries and soup kitchens. And, we have gone to Ocean City, Maryland to partner with Ocean City Baptist Church.
We partner with other churches in the continental United States. In the past we’ve worked with churches in New Hampshire, Delaware, North Dakota, West Virginia, and to areas ravaged by Hurricane Katrina.
Ends of the Earth Missions
Redland has sent mission teams to Rwanda, Kenya, Romania, Mexico, Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. Those teams have led Vacation Bible Schools, built homes and churches, provided free medical care, done street evangelism, and ministered in prisons and hospitals.
We’re excited about all the opportunities God will give us in the future to join Him in His great work of sharing the gospel with a lost world both through our giving and our going.
