Therefore, our first approach would entail three initial strategies, first of all, sharing the true teachings of Christ; that He is no respecter of persons, no respecter of culture, nor social, racial, or geographic boundaries. Secondly, Christ teachings, His promises, and His commandments are the absolute authority for deliverance and He is the model and healer, protector and reconciler of all people groups, nations, and tribes. Thirdly, helping them to understand that the Gospel and "the church of God is a multinational, missionary community."
Yet, despite the hardships and difficult struggles, the Bambara people have a rich and viable culture and honored family traditions that are demonstrations of a closeness with Biblical ideology, mandates and principles. Just like the Bambara people throughout history our loving God always honors the family and His desire is for all families in the earth to be blessed (Gen. 12:3). We believe this message alone will began to help them to know God's truth; that He is no respecter of persons, no respecter of culture, nor social, racial, or geographic boundaries. They will come to know that the Holy Spirit flows readily through the bonds that exist between family and friends. The Gospel promises will no longer be seen or perceive as foreign or alien, but a message spoken in their language and a true promise for their nation. The Bambara people will come to know that what God has done to bless other nations, He can now do the same for them.
We will even share Bible stories with them before they are saved, so they can immediately pass it on to their family and friends. In this approach, the husbands being the leader of the family can continue to lead by example, and not in a demanding way, but in love and respect through the teachings of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We will acknowledge that the Word (logos) is Jesus Christ and there is absolute authority in the infallible Word of God and Jesus the Christ is our New Testament model for influence, persuasion, the very image of what God wished to say to all mankind. He is the life and light of the world, the Creator and Maker of all things in detail and whatever life is, and all that life is, it is in Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
This task will be accomplished by working as an engaged ministry and partnering with other established missions that are committed to create an environment for evangelism, discipleship and leadership training that will ignite a movement of church planting among our unreached and unengaged people group.
- Since 2006, more than 200 Christians are meeting in three new churches where there were none before, as a result of some Baptist missions.
