BMS (Baptist Missionary Society)
BMS World Mission is a Christian mission organisation, working in around 34 countries on four continents.
BMS believes in holistic mission, an approach that stays true to the Christian call to evangelisation without neglecting the duty to take care of the physical needs of the poor.
BMS works through long, medium and short-term workers, teams and volunteers, as well as a large number of supported national partner workers around the world, providing people, funding, training and expertise in the core areas of our work:
•Media and advocacy
As one of the world's oldest Protestant mission organisations (founded in 1792 by William Carey, the father of modern mission) BMS has longstanding relationships with partner organisations, umbrella mission agencies and local church unions in the countries in which it works.
This, along with a long-term approach, ethical policies and supreme cultural sensitivity, has made BMS one of the most trusted names in mission worldwide.
Rickmansworth Baptist Church supports the BMS through the Birthday Scheme, special events and by committing itself to give a minimum sum each financial year.
