Lutheran Brethren International Mission is privileged to serve in Cameroon, Chad, Japan, and Taiwan. In each of these countries we work together with the national church to plant churches, evangelize, educate, and minister to the spiritual and physical needs of the people.
Why we are different
Lutheran Brethren International Mission works within the 10/40 Window—a rectangular area of North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia approximately between 10 degrees north and 40 degrees north latitude. The 10/40 Window is home to the majority of the world’s unevangelized countries—an estimated 3.1 billion people living in approximately 5,992 people groups who have no valid opportunity to respond to the Gospel.
Unreached People Groups
What we do
Our mission is to glorify God by being a Church that proclaims the gospel with an intensity and scope proportionate to our responsibility within the larger body of Christ, so that the Great Commission is fulfilled in and on behalf of our generation.
Mobilize in Mission
LBIM facilitates the congregations of the Church of the Lutheran Brethren in their call to fulfill the Great Commission.
LBIM recruits, trains, and supports missionaries who proclaim the gospel in some of the hardest to reach places on earth.
LBIM seeks to plant self-propagating Church bodies that are expected to reach their neighbors with the good news of Jesus Christ.
LBIM has planted Church bodies in Cameroon, Southern Chad, Japan, and Taiwan. These sister denominations are partners in mission.
LBIM has translated the full Bible into the heart language of seven unreached people groups, and the New Testament into an additional eleven.
LBIM models the joy of living in relationship with God through Christ Jesus by seeking to provide clean water, famine relief, and education to those in need.
Our Latest Work
In November 2018, Gethsémané de Meube School opened in a one-room grass hut with over 50 kids enrolled in first grade. In November 2019, a second grade was added. The vision of LBIM is to add agrade and teacher each year until Gethsémané de Meube is a complete elementary school offering grades one through six.
Our missionaries come from a variety of different backgrounds. We have former engineers, nurses, school teachers, and truck drivers. God is using their unique gifts and life experiences to reach the lost with the good news of His Son Jesus Christ.
Is God Calling You to
LBIM is looking for people to go as missionaries to proclaim the Gospel among the unreached people of Africa and Asia. If you feel God might be calling you to mission work among the unreached, please contact us.
