Providence Baptist Church is Religious Organization situated at the corners of Broad, Center and Ashmun Streets, Monrovia, Liberia.
“To build a church where lives are radically changed and disciples are intentionally made.” That is to call seekers to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and believers to a deeper commitment of service in the Kingdom.
Disciples making Disciples, Transforming Lives and Renewing Communities (Matthew 28:18-20; Isaiah. 58:12);
To become all that God wants us to be — to be Disciples. At Providence we define discipleship as “living as Christ would if He were in my place.”
This implies two things:
First: A life of transformation and dependence on the Holy Spirit.
Second: The development of holistic ministries that meet the needs of
the whole person – ministries that transform the heart, the mind, the soul and the body, and ministries that restores broken walls and streets with dwellings (Luke 4:18-20; Isaiah 12:1-12). To use our different gifts to live for God to our fullest and share Him with others so that they can also live to their fullest, using their different gifts. At Providence we plan to live out our mission and vision through the five G’s:
Grace – to personally appropriate and extend the saving work of Christ (Eph. 2:8-9);
Growth – to pursue Christ-likeness (2 Peter 3:18);
Group – to connection with other members in significant relationship (Acts 2:46);
Gifts – to serve the body of Christ according to our spiritual gifts and passion (Romans 12:6-8) and
Good Stewardship – to honor God with our resources through what we give to the church and what we keep (Philippians 4:11 – 19).
Here at Providence Baptist Church, we are a people who claim a personal relationship to God through Jesus Christ and corporate relationship with each other and the worship; we affirm the centrality of Scripture in our lives; who gather regularly to praise God; we strive to fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples; we affirm the Church’s unity as given in Jesus Christ; we care for the needy, the weak, the poor, and the oppressed. We are a people who are gifted by a variety of ethnicity and backgrounds, and we find unity in our diversity and diversity in our unity. We have a vision for the future; and trust in the Holy Spirit’s power through prayer for insight and power to live transform lives in renewed communities in this present age.
We join with other Christian brothers and sisters around the world, believing that:
- The Bible is the final authority and trustworthy for faith and practice. It is to be interpreted responsibly under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit within the community of faith;
- The Church is a gathered fellowship of regenerated believers, a sign of the coming universal reign of God;
- Our freedom to respond to the Lordship of Christ in all circumstances is fundamental to the Christian gospel and to human dignity;
- Within the larger Christian family our witness to Christ is the ongoing task of every Christian and of every church.
A church’s mission statement and ministry philosophy are key to the success of its ministry because they function as navigational tools necessary to chart an accurate course towards a worthy destination. Two specific words of commission direct Providence in her vision, mission and plan. First, we must “GO,” which signifies that true discipleship is a dynamic existence characterized by energetic initiative. And second, we must “TELL.” As followers of Jesus Christ this community must continue to tell people how to meet Jesus, and then develop ministries for inviting all people to experience repentance , forgiveness, and discipleship through the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ promise of his abiding presence extends to each new generation of commissioned disciples. He promised to walk with us to work with us, to encourage us, and to empower us to transform lives and renew the communities around us.
