Missions

Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.

-Mark 16:15

Disciples, Making Disciples.

As Christians, we are called to spread the good news of Jesus Christ (the gospel) to a lost world.

This is not just a sentiment to express, but a mission that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, will be accomplished. Jesus, in Matthew 16 said, “I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Scripture is clear that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is a message to be declared and delivered to all peoples, and God calls all Christians to have a role in seeing that message spread. To that end, we seek to proclaim that gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ, within our community, state, country, and the world.

Missions Opportunities

Supporting Organizations

West Haven is often involved in helping at local eyeglass clinics by providing volunteers and resources to support these initiatives. In addition,we have partnered with Vision 3:16 for a mission trip to Mexico in August of 2023. This partnership will allow West Haven Church and Vision 3:16 to work together in bringing the gospel to communities in Mexico and making a positive impact in the lives of those they serve.
West Haven has a strong alignment with the Kansas City Kansas Baptist Association (KCKBA) in their shared mission of spreading the gospel and serving the community. Through this association, West Haven and the KCKBA are able to pool their resources and collaborate on various initiatives and ministries aimed at making a positive impact in the lives of people and bringing them closer to Christ. In addition, the KCKBA provides resources and support to West Haven as it seeks to fulfill its own mission in Tonganoxie.
West Haven is part of the Church Forward Network (aka, Kansas-Nebraska Convention of Southern Baptists (KNCSB)). This association allows West Haven Church and Church Forward to work together in carrying out various initiatives and programs aimed at making a positive impact in people’s lives and bringing them closer to Christ. The partnership between West Haven Church and Church Forward demonstrates their shared commitment to serving others and spreading the gospel in their communities and beyond.
West Haven Church is a supporter of the Cooperative Program, an initiative of the Southern Baptist Convention that allows churches to pool their resources and work together in spreading the gospel and serving their communities. As a participating church, West Haven contributes a portion of its budget to the Cooperative Program, which supports various missions and outreach efforts. Through its participation in the Cooperative Program, West Haven is able to have a greater impact on the world and support the spread of the gospel beyond our own community. The Cooperative Program is an effective way for West Haven to invest in the kingdom of God and make a lasting impact in the world.
Many West Haven members have formed a partnership with Compassion International in support of their mission to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. We support children in Nicaragua by providing financial assistance and resources to help meet their physical, social, educational, and spiritual needs.

West Haven is proud to partner with Insight Women’s Center in Lawrence, KS in their shared mission of serving and supporting women and families in need. The church provides volunteers and financial support to the center, which offers a variety of services, including pregnancy testing, counseling, and education to women facing unplanned pregnancies.
