What is the IMB and Who is Lottie Moon?
IMB (International Mission Board) — Since its beginning, IMB has had one goal: bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost peoples of the world. At the first Southern Baptist Convention in 1845, the Foreign Mission Board (FMB) was founded as part of “one sacred effort, for the propagation of the gospel.” Southern Baptist churches believed that by working cooperatively, they could accomplish more for God’s kingdom. That belief still stands strong today.
As a part of the Southern Baptist Convention, IMB joins together with more than 45,000 cooperating churches in the common purpose of making disciples and multiplying churches through a limitless network of pathways designed to engage every congregation and every believer in the Great Commission. Through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering®, Southern Baptist churches support thousands of missionaries and missionary teams who are making disciples and planting churches around the world.
We believe every church has a role to play in reaching every nation with the gospel. Give @ IMB Website
Lottie Moon — the namesake of Southern Baptists’ international missions offering—has become a legend. But in her time, Lottie was anything but an untouchable hero. In fact, she was like today's missionaries. She labored tirelessly so her people group could know Jesus.
For 39 years Lottie labored, chiefly in Tengchow and P’ingtu. People feared and rejected her, but she refused to leave. The aroma of fresh-baked cookies drew people to her house. She adopted traditional Chinese dress, and she learned China’s language and customs. Lottie didn’t just serve the people of China; she identified with them. Many eventually accepted her. And some accepted her Savior.
In 1918, Woman’s Missionary Union (WMU) named the annual Christmas offering for international missions after the woman who had urged them to start it.
