International Missions

Following the example of Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we seek to impact our city, our state, our nation, and our world. As believers we are called to go beyond the walls of our comfort and convenience to reach the hurting and hopeless with the good news of Jesus Christ.

God has called us to be ambassadors of His love and grace available through Christ. He has also called us authenticate our words through practical deeds of kindness and love at home and around the world. Warwick Central has had an impact. Many parishioners have taken mission trips to the Dominican Republic to help build a hospital; to Nicaragua to provide housing and health care, and most recently to El Salvador, where we have helped build four homes for families, and provided funds and supplies for the local Baptist elementary school, seminary, and church.

We are currently providing partial support to our international missionaries, Tim and Patti Long. They serve in Baja California, Mexico. Patti ministers as a special education teacher and resource specialist at the Monte Horeb Baptist Grade School in Tijuana, a school that reaches out to some of the most vulnerable of the city’s young people, its children with special needs. Tim serves in leadership development with the Baja Baptist Seminary of Mexicali, teaching present and future church leaders in Baja California, and with IM partners in the Dominican Republic. He also serves as on-site coordinator and professor in Palmer Seminary’s online Masters in Theological Studies program in Latino/a ministries.

Our church’s women’s circle also provides much needed items and financial support to the International Ministries White Cross program.

Denominational mission that we support include World Mission Offering, America For Christ, One Great Hour of Sharing, and the Retired Ministers and Missionaries Fund, with thousands of dollars generously given by our church family each year.

In addition, our annual mission budget supports United Mission within the denomination, the Baptist Fund of Rhode Island, and the Rhode Island State Council of Churches.
