On May 10, 1845, the newly formed Southern Baptist Convention established the Foreign Mission Board (later IMB) calling it “one sacred effort, for the propagation of the gospel”. Since that day missionary effort through this board has been a collective bond connecting Southern Baptists together in sharing Christ and planting new churches around the world.
The IMB developed and launched an online interactive timeline beautifully outlining this history decade-by-decade. In it you will find compelling stories, interesting facts, beautiful pictures, and many short powerful video clips.

We want to also celebrate by advancing the missionary task in prayer. The IMB is mobilizing 175,000 people to pray for 175 days in a coordinated effort this year. On May 11, 2020, the IMB began sharing specific God-stories and prayer points from all around the world. Will you join us in prayer each day?
