Rockport seeks to partner with and engage in missions with partners of like faith.
This partnership begins with our long standing relationship with Heart Cry Missionary Society
It also includes our own, Psalm 67 Missions ( Please see the Psalm 67 Missions Website)
We also are in the process of partnering with other missions agencies (see below)
Here is a great blog article written by one of our missionaries for the Psalm 67 Blog.
|In the Book of Romans the Apostle Paul wrote:
For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” (Rom 10:12-15)
These verses clearly teach us that the Good News of what Christ has accomplished is a message with no boundaries. It is for everyone, in every place and at all times. It is the only message by which we may be saved. Rockport understands these truths and is actively engaged in both local and foreign missionary efforts. The work takes different forms but it all takes a personal commitment of time, resources and prayer.
As a Southern Baptist Church, Rockport engages in missional efforts locally, joyfully contributes to our association in Jefferson County and participates in the SBC’s Cooperative Program which funds various state, national and international programs and over 10,000 missionaries, foreign and domestic.
Below is a list of various people and ministries with whom our church has formed personal relationships and for whom we pray and support both fiscally and sometimes physically via “hands-on” participation in their ministries.

Jason passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on 6/5/13. Please keep his family, and especially dear wife, Stephanie, in your prayers. May God raise up many who will take his place in taking the Gospel to the nations!
