Let’s make Jesus known among the nations.

The greatest problem in the world is lostness. The only solution to this problem is the gospel. Together, Southern Baptists send IMB missionaries to be steadfastly present among people and places where Jesus is not named or known.

Our Work

59% of the world today is considered unreached — meaning Jesus is largely unknown among 4.7 billion people.

Today, hundreds of thousands of people will die without the hope of Jesus. The IMB exists to address this problem, the world’s greatest problem — lostness. We send missionaries to the nations to share the good news of Jesus.
