WE ARE A SUPPORTING CHURCH: There is a kingdom-movement taking place in North America. Churches of all sizes, and from all backgrounds, are sending and supporting the efforts of church planting in the places of greatest need. The Send Network (of the North American Mission Board) is designed to help churches like ours to partner with planters in locations throughout North America.
Sending Churches and Supporting Churches are vital to a church plant’s success. It is vital that church plants have a Sending Church to walk closely with them through the challenges of planting, and every planting team needs Supporting Churches to help by praying, participating and providing.
Warsaw Baptist Church is currently partnering as a Supporting Church with Jason Hampton's church plant in Indianapolis, Refuge Bible Church. We provide financial and prayer support as a church body. Individual families and households also provide additional support above and beyond what the church gives annually. If you would like to find out more about RBC and how you can help them influence their area of Indianapolis, Indiana with the Gospel, access their partnering page here.

WE ARE ALSO A HOST CHURCH: In keeping with the spirit of Acts 2:44-45 and Acts 4:32, and in recognition of the Genesis 12:2 truth that we have been blessed by God to bless others, Warsaw Baptist Church began hosting our brothers and sisters from Gallatin Community Church in April 2020.
GCC planted in our county in July of 2016. We have been in support of their calling to the community from day one, primarily through prayer and encouragement, and we have praised Jesus while witnessing the mighty way in which they have been used by God to reach more and more of our community for the Kingdom.
In an effort to give them a larger meeting space than their former, rented location; and to enable them to more quickly achieve their "Heart For The House" vision to build their own permanent church home, we have committed to share our building with them for this season.
This is in line with our commitments to church planting and radical hospitality that we see evidenced in the Scriptures and lived out by the Church for many generations. This also works in agreement with "Item XIV. Cooperation" from our Baptist Faith & Message.
