Africa Mission & Beyond is an international ministry that operates to fulfill the scriptural commission of Christ:
- “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:20).
- “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me….Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me” (Matthew 25:35-40).
Our foremost burden and mission is to share the good news of the gospel, bringing hope to the hopeless and salvation to the sinner through the love and power of Jesus Christ. As the Holy Spirit inspires and leads, mission trips are made to various countries to preach the glad tidings of full salvation.
The Gospel Truth, published by this office, is a quarterly publication containing biblical instruction and encouragement for the mission field worldwide. It is translated and printed in various languages so people can better understand in their native tongue the teachings of the Word of God.
Funds, as available, are used to support native ministers and foreign camp meetings, buy Bibles, build chapels, and assist in the general missionary efforts of this office.
In addition to actively spreading the gospel though the spoken and written word, Africa Mission & Beyond seeks to show the love of God through humanitarian deeds of charity. It sponsors and supports orphanages and schools, assists impoverished children with food and education, provides international disaster relief, and helps administer Project Christmas Blessing.
Africa Mission & Beyond was founded by Michael and René Smith. Michael was called of God and made his first missionary trip to Africa in 1996. Since that time, the work has grown and expanded into different countries, not all of which are described here. Africa Mission & Beyond was started in 2004 to help meet the demands of the many spiritual and humanitarian needs in the various mission fields in which they were personally working. The missionary efforts described and depicted are made in the interest of the Church of God for the furtherance of God’s Kingdom. Your prayers and support for these gospel efforts and for all the workers of Africa Mission & Beyond is greatly appreciated.
The fields are still white and ready to harvest. Truly, the work is great.
