- 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.
Southern Baptists send IMB missionaries to be steadfastly present among those who have never heard the gospel — people in cities, people in hard-to-reach places, and people who are dispersed and displaced around the world.
At the IMB, we believe that missionary presence cultivates gospel access, gospel belief, and church planting and multiplication. Gospel access that knows no geographic or social boundary. Gospel belief that results in lives transformed. Church planting and multiplication that leads to local ownership of God’s mission.
God has made our purpose clear. Together, we seek to take the gospel to every nation, all tribes and peoples and languages. We give ourselves to this mission every day.
