REGULAR BAPTIST BUILDERS CLUB ASSISTS FIRE-RAVAGED CHURCH MEMBERS’ HOMES IN CALIFORNIA

The Regular Baptist Builders Club board of administrators has awarded grants from the Disaster Relief Fund to two Northern California GARBC churches. First Baptist Church in Weaverville and First Baptist Church in Windsor are each receiving $10,000 checks to assist church families whose homes were damaged by recent wildfires. Churches have the option of using the assistance as an outreach to help members of their communities who have also suffered the loss of property because of the fires.

 

 

ZAMBIA ASSOCIATION JOINS INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP
The International Partnership of Fundamental Baptist Ministries welcomes the Northern Baptist Association of Zambia into its partnership. This association of 500 churches has a rich heritage, started by Baptist missionaries from England in 1905. After reviewing the application of the Northern Baptist Association of Zambia, including its doctrinal statement, history, and constitution, the IPFBM Council of Eight officially voted to receive this new association into fellowship. The final step is an on-site visit, which Chris Hindal is planning in October. Praise God for brothers and sisters in Africa who stand firmly upon the Word of God. We welcome them as partners in fulfilling the Great Commission assignment
