Empowering Disciples

HBM empowers local indigenous Christians to be the missionaries in their communities. They know the language or languages and the culture where they live, work and play. They can communicate the powerful Gospel of Jesus Christ in a way that relates to those around them. This enables listen to hear clearly the message of a victorious,  eternal life.

The local church is the best mission agency sending out their people into the local fields that are ready to harvest.
