BMAO - How shall they hear?
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! (Rom 10:13-15)
How shall they hear without a preacher? This is the reason the BMAO or Baptist Missionary Association of Oklahoma exists, this is our purpose: To send preachers out into the world, to preach the gospel, to share the good news of Christ. This is the principle work of the church and the BMAO is an extension of that work.
Formed in 1951, the BMAO works to bring Oklahoma churches together in the work of preaching the Gospel of Christ in our state, country and world. Created not only to establish scriptural missions and churches but to also build up and maintain Christian education and benevolent institutions; to cultivate a deeper fraternal spirit of cooperation among the churches and to provide a medium through which all member churches may cooperate in these endeavors.
The BMAO brings together the three local associations of Oklahoma; Central, Morning Star and Southeast. We also cooperate with the BMAA (Baptist Missionary Association of America). All working together to preach the Gospel of Christ.
