Key Largo Baptist Church is a mission-minded church, which means we have a vision to reach souls around the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our prayers, participation in short-term missions trips, and financial support of many missionaries allows people to hear the GOSPEL. Nothing is more important than that fact. Literally, people are passing from death to life because of our focus on missions.
The KLBC Missions Program is about an active partnership between us and our missionaries. We are counting on them to share Jesus Christ, and they are counting on us to meet their financial needs. We are a TEAM!
Each month all monies given to missions is carefully kept separate from all other KLBC finances. Since this is a “faith” budget, we, BY FAITH, ask God to give us an amount – above our tithes – for world-wide missions. As we activate our faith, God blesses by supplying; and we, in turn, become a blessing to our missionaries. The missionaries we currently provide monthly support to are:
Norris & Linda Bailey – Vietnam
Sandy & Karen Baird – New Hope Initiative /Africa
Henry & Victoria Benach – j.e.m. (Jewish End Time Ministries)
Doug & Joli Cullen – Choose Life Ministries
Dave Homer – Taiwan

Our annual Missions Week and Banquet are typically held in March. Each year we are excited and humbled to hear several missionaries as they visit us to give their testimonies and the vision God has laid on their hearts for missions. On Wednesday night of that week, we hold a banquet feast with great fellowship while enjoying a mission-centered program featuring musical entertainment and a guest speaker.
We count it a privilege to have taken several short-term missions trips to Jamaica and Cuba over the past several years, most recently July 22nd thru 29th of 2017.
