RBW Missions .... we're a team. We are goers, givers, senders, pray-ers, receivers, mobilizers. We're from many different ethnicities and backgrounds. We offer the skills, talents, passions, resources, and abilities we have to take the message of Jesus Christ to as many peoples as we can. We work with churches and ministries that know we are saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus and His work for us on the cross - that Jesus' death paid the price for our offense against God. We go to places that are rural, urban, rich, poor, clean, dirty. We preach the Gospel in word and in deed. We share the truth with grace, and love with action, not just words. We sleep on floors, hammocks, or beds, use in-door plumbing or outhouses, tutor kids or clean bathrooms. We hug the filthy, share food with the hungry, clothe the naked, bring freedom to the oppressed, visit those in jail, teach the children. We pray for the sick and help them get the medical treatment they need in Jesus' name. We give finances as directed by the Holy Spirit to help get basic necessities or help start a small business or build a church. We are not perfect, but we serve a perfect God who is strong in our weakness. We love because He first loved us. That's who we are . . . maybe you'd like to join us?!
RBW Missions is about connecting followers of Jesus Christ in the US with our brothers and sisters in Latin America so that, together, we can more effectively do what Jesus wants us to do.
- Outreach / Encounter Trips are designed to provide team members with a stretching experience where they can work side-by-side with believers in a cross-cultural context for the building of God's Kingdom.
- Partner Links with Local Ministries let us combine what God has given to each player in the game - the indigenous, the national, the expatriate whether they be churches, Bible Training Schools, Mission Training School, or missionary agencies.

- Pastor / Missionary / Student Sponsorship Programs link our two worlds through prayer and economic partnerships. An individual, family, church group, or anyone, partners with a national pastor, missionary, or student. Correspondence and visits are encouraged.
- Development Projects: Joining vocational training and skills with discipleship produces laborers for the harvest field who have skills to offer a new community, the ability to sustain themselves, and a firm foundation for Biblical and cross-cultural service.
In the Body of Christ, there are many areas that we all can agree upon (basic orthodoxy). There are a few things that we have allowed to separate us and make us a "house divided." Here is the core statement of faith that we hold to and ask our team members and inter-national participants to agree with. In the marginal areas that do not affect the foundations of our faith, we wish to practice loving unity. However, that does not mean that we will fly with whatever cultural wind may be blowing. God is not finished with any of us yet, and until He is, we will work toward unity under His banner. (John 17:20-26)
We believe the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, the complete revelation of His will, and the Divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21)
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, 26; Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 1:1,3; 4:24; Acts 5:3-4; Romans 1:20; Ephesians 4:5-6; II Corinthians 13:14)
We believe Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, and is true God and true man. (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13)
We believe that man and woman were created in the image of God, that we sinned and this brought not only physical death, but also spiritual death and separation from God. We are born with a want-to to sin and not one of us can stand before Him innocent in our own merit. (Genesis 1:26-27; 3:1-24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-18; I John 1:8)
We believe that Jesus died for our sins and was raised to life on the third day, that He was a representative and substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe in Him are justified by faith alone on the grounds of His shed blood. (Isaiah 53; Matthew 20:29; John 3:16; Romans 3:24; 5:1; I Corinthians 5:3; II Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:17; I John 2:2)
We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:16-17)
We believe that all who respond to the Holy Spirit's prompting and accept the Lord Jesus Christ through faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. (John 1:12-13; 3:3-5; 6:44; I Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 2:8-9; James 1:18; I Peter 1:23)
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting joy of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost. (John 5:28-29; I Corinthians 15:11; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelations 20:4-15)
We believe that healing of the body is possible through the work of Christ. Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church today. (Mark 6:13; James 5:15)
We believe God's plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage and that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other. God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female. We expect that staff, board members and team members will submit to Biblical instruction on sexuality. (Genesis 1:26-27; Matthew 19:4-6; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
