Current Churches & Ministries
BIMI missionaries have served in Uganda since 1994. Over 100 independent Baptist churches have been established in this country of over 30 million people. Our missionaries are currently serving in a variety of church planting ministries including regular worship services, building projects, radio stations, Christian camp, children's Bible training, national leadership training in small but effective local church Bible institutes, and teaching Bible in the public schools. Orphan ministries and Christian Day Schools have been established to prepare the next generation of church-planters.
BIMI missionaries are serving in 10 of the largest districts, and churches have been established or are being established in dozens of towns and villages surrounding these areas. Additionally, several national missionaries are beginning new church-planting works in various parts of the country. Yet there are many districts throughout Uganda still without a Gospel-preaching church of any kind. Less than 20% attend an established Christian church of any type.
Special projects/opportunities Orphan Ministries such as G.R.A.C.E Project, Project H.O.P.E., and S.O.A.P. care for a combined total of over 150 children. Three radio stations in Mbarara (Life Radio), Masaka (Word of Life Radio), and Soroti (Calvary Radio), together can reach over 40% of the nation's population depending on weather and other operating conditions. Each of the larger districts have a Bible Institute, and the East Africa Baptist College has been established in the capital city of Kampala to serve the needs of those desiring advanced Bible training.
