Hope Baptist Church is a missionary-minded church. We are fully in agreement with world-wide missions and desire to pour as much of the Lord’s money into it as possible. We believe in the great commission, Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15, to go into all the world and preach the gospel. We regularly have missionaries come to speak at our church from around the world. We have a missionary cabinet that every missionary who comes to our church gets to visit. We regularly pray for the mission fields of the world. We believe our missionaries are an extension of our local church. We are responsible to God for how the money the Lord gives us is used and we believe it is to be used wisely in whom we support. We are very serious about whom we support and it is our desire to support only those missionaries that are interested in godliness and holiness in their personal lives and that they and their family have a godly testimony for our Lord, Titus 2:11-13. We believe that if this is not true in the missioary’s life they will not be able to minister properly on the field, I Timothy 3:4-5.
We also believe that the missionary must be evangelistic, doctrinally sound, Biblically knowledgeable, have a true calling of God on his or her life to the field, and have a true love for the people they are ministering to. Therefore, we have Hope Baptist Missions to send our own people to the mission field and Hope Baptist Institute to train them to go. Through our world wide ministry, For The Love Of The Family, we are providing thousands of pieces of literature around the world for missionaries to use. For The Love Of The Family material has been translated into 21 different languages and is being used by missionaries around the world.
Here is a list of our missionaries:

- For the Love of the Family Ministries - Missionaries to America’s forgotten field, the American family. Because of the great need for American Christians to train their children to live for the Saviour and to be spiritual parents, husbands and wives, Pastor Terry L. Coomer and his wife Kim started this ministry. For the Love of the Family Ministries provides godly literature to families, family conferences and spiritual encouragement to Christians to build godly families.
