We assume that you are in full agreement with your sending church's doctrinal statement. If there are any distinctions, please explain what distinctions you make below! *
Explain any distinctions:
How can we view your sending church's doctrinal statement? (Will you attach it in an email to us or provide us a working link to it?)*
Would you open another tab on your browser and read BBC's "Summary of What We Believe" (It's under "About Us" then "What We Believe")? Then indicate below what answers apply (You can choose multiple answers): *
I would make a distinction in our doctrinal position as follows:
Disagreement with BBC does not necessarily disqualify a prospective missionary from consideration for financial support. We do not wish to be your authority. We recognize your sending church as that God given authority.
If you are going to a non-English speaking locale, could you explain briefly the issue of Bible translations that you will encounter and what your plan will be? *
Would you please discuss briefly your understanding of ecclesiastical separation (if not included in your doctrinal statement): *
The following questions have to do with our desire to learn how to more effectively minister to missionaries in general, and potentially to you specifically!
How did you hear about us here at Bible Baptist Church?
How, and how often, do you plan to communicate with your supporting churches when on the field?
What percentage of support that you desire is presently promised?
Currently, how many churches are supporting you?
Would you estimate the average level of support from your churches?
Would you estimate how many churches do you generally visit before one will take you on for support?
How long have you been on Deputation?
What are your three most pressing needs right now (besides prayer and meetings)?
For potential scheduling, do you have a time of the year that you are anticipating being in the New England states? *
Is there any additional information that you feel would be necessary for BBC to understand?
Once you submit this questionnaire allow two weeks for Pastor Bates to review and potentially follow-up with some of the references or resources you provided. If, after reading BBC's Philosophy of Missions, BBC's Summary Statement of Doctrine, and filling out this questionnaire, you feel led to contact Pastor Bates about possible scheduling a time when you could present your burden, then feel free to contact him at 603.889.4426.
