American Baptist Home Mission Society

The American Baptist Home Mission Society began in 1832 to address the spiritual needs of people in the frontier. The purpose of the Home Mission Society was "to preach the Gospel, establish churches and give support and ministry to the unchurched and destitute."

In 1877, the Woman's American Baptist Home Mission Society organized to "proclaim the Christian faith and to minister to people of special need."

In 1955, the American Baptist Home Mission Society and the Woman's American Baptist Home Mission Society merged. In 1972, the combined Home Mission Societies became known as National Ministries. Today, National Ministries continus its work by encouraging life in Christ through ministries of Witness, Renewal and Justice.
