The purpose of Battleground Community Church is to glorify God through Christ-exalting worship as we grow together in biblical community while going with the gospel to all people(s).
Our purpose statement drives everything we do toward a singular focus: the mission of God. All our efforts culminate in magnifying and proclaiming the gospel of God among all people(s).
How Does Battleground Community Church Do This?
1. Partner with the city of Kings Mountain to help at city events
2. Serve at our local Cleveland County Rescue Mission
3. Work with our local schools
4. Help in the homeless community in our area
As Southern Baptists, we have two sending agencies:
1. The North American Mission Board (NAMB)
2. The International Mission Board (IMB)
Three ways we GO globally:
1. Support the Cooperative Program that supports our sending agencies
2. Give annually to our two mission offerings. 100% of both offerings go directly to our missionaries both nationally and globally. (Lottie Moon and Annie Armstrong - see below for more information)
3. Go short-term on a mission trip to one of our mission partners
Financial Giving Opportunities For Missions
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO)
This offering is collected throughout the year culminating in a grand giving on a Sunday in December. 100% of these funds are sent to the International Mission Board (IMB), supporting missionaries all over the world.
Annie Armstrong Easter Offering (AAEO)
This offering is collected throughout the year culminating in a grand giving on Easter Sunday. 100% of these funds are sent to the North American Mission Board (NAMB), supporting missionaries all over the world.
Acts 1:8 Fund
This may be given any Sunday throughout the year. These funds proportionately support Local and Global Disciple-Making.
Financial support may be given to send individuals short-term and mid-term. While one-time gifts may be the obvious method for STM, MTM may be supported through one-time gifts or through ongoing gifts during their time on the field.
