“In the Missions Ministry, we want to help as many people as possible take their
Next Step toward Jesus Christ.”
To equip believers who Go Share, following the path of Acts 1:8. First in Sumter, then in South Carolina, then the United States, and to the ends of the earth.
Seeking. Finding people and groups of people who are in need.
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.” Luke 19:10
Sharing. Our resources, our gifts, and our stories.
“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.” Philippians 2:3-4
Serving. Building, repairing, moving, cleaning, feeding, etc.
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,
as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”
1 Peter 4:10
Sending. Equipping our people to be effective missionaries locally, nationally, and globally.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses
in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
Spreading. Teaching others about God’s word, God’s will, and God’s love.
“How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent?
As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!” Romans 10:14-15
As an ever-growing body of Christ, we thrive to serve people in their own culture and communities. Having multiple campuses allows us to build church cultures specific to the immediate members and grow more intimate relationships with them.
The HELPS Ministry of Alice Drive Baptist Church exists to provide assistance to widows, single parents (including spouses of deployed military members) and the elderly in the Sumter area, who have needs that they are not capable of accomplishing themselves, such as: wheelchair ramps, small repairs and construction, yardwork, transportation, and moving/relocating.
Throughout the year, other volunteer opportunities in the community are available.
Email Missions@adbc.org for more information about ways to serve LOCALLY.
We plan trips each year to various parts of the country to serve our national communities that are underprivileged or experiencing suffering.
Some past trips include: New York City, NY; Disaster Relief, etc.

In addition, our team members support BMDMI’s Bible Institute as well as the BMDMI Hospital.
