Faith Promise February
At MBC, the month of February has long been dedicated to focusing on missions. This is a time each year when our people search their hearts and inquire of the Lord what part He would have them to play in local, national and foreign missions.
We support missions through a missions giving program called "Faith Promise". Through it, we've been able to steadily increase our missions giving over the years. In this way, everyone can be involved in missions; those who cannot go can support those who can through prayer and finances.
Through Faith Promise, God's people become the conduits through which His provisions flow!
Missionary Guest Speaker
Philip Ninan, his wife Sophy and his daughter Natasha currently live in Bolingbrook, IL and are active members at Independent Baptist Church of Bolingbrook. Brother Ninan grew up in Southern India in a Christian home and accepted Christ as his Savior at the age of 13. After completing his Biblical studies in India, the Lord opened the door for Philip to pursue a Doctorate of Ministry degree at Calvary Baptist Theological Seminary in Lansdale, PA. Dr. Ninan then began working as an assistant pastor in Bolingbrook, IL, but has always had a burden for his home country of India. He shared this burden with his senior pastor, and, 5 years ago, they started Heritage Baptist Ministries in India. This ministry expanded rapidly and now includes 7 new church plants, 4 sewing institutes, ESL classes, an orphanage and a small Bible college. Dr. Ninan will be with us on the morning of February 23rd to explain in more detail about this growing ministry and how we can partner with him and his family as they seek to serve the Lord further in India.
