ABC in focus - July 2019
The apostle Paul declared confidently, “I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes…” (Romans 1:16 NIV) The power of the Gospel is at the heart of everything we do as a ministry to Hispanics. Our desire is to see the Gospel transform the lives of many Spanish-speaking folks, so that they are inspired to share the Gospel with those around them. Over the years, we have seen a good number of lives transformed by the Gospel. One woman was so encouraged when she understood the Gospel that she called her sister immediately to tell her about it. After he received the Gospel, a farm worker asked us for materials to take back to his country in order to share the Gospel with others there. Would you join me in praying that many more lives would be transformed by the power of the Gospel, as we faithfully share and proclaim the Good News of salvation through faith in Christ? Let me ask you: are you ashamed of the Gospel?
ABC Regional Hispanic Ministries is focused on taking the Good News of Jesus Christ to Hispanics outside the walls of the church. From its beginnings in 1992 as an outreach to transient farm workers, ABC has proclaimed the life-changing Gospel of Jesus Christ to the Hispanics of Allendale, Hampton, Barnwell, Bamberg and Colleton Counties in South Carolina.
Our Purpose: to reach and win the Spanish language/culture people to Jesus Christ, to provide them with discipleship development, and to provide a Christian ministry to the permanent, seasonal, and transient Spanish language/culture people of Allendale-Hampton, Barnwell-Bamberg, and Colleton Associations in cooperation with local Southern Baptist churches.
Our Mission: to establish on-mission Hispanic churches which will reach out to the Hispanic population (transient and permanent) of the ABC area, and to fulfill the Great Commandment and the Great Commission among the transient population.
