The Northwest China Initiative

Reaching “Chinese Turkestan” with the gospel.


The Northwest China Initiative is a plan to see a church-planting missionary in each of these key cities: Xi’an, Ürümqi, Lanzhou, Yinchuan, and Xining

Our hope is that each of these missionaries will start a church-planting movement that trains national leaders to not only reach the city they are in but also their province or autonomous region and beyond. The 2 provinces and 2 autonomous regions represented  by these 5 cities are: Xinjiang, Ningxia, Qinghai, Gansu, Qinghai, and Shaanxi

We Need Men and Women

We need men and women to surrender their lives to take the gospel to these places. There are incredible opportunities in these places—we just need a willing servant with a heart fully surrendered over to God.

Will you pray will us for the millions of souls who need the gospel?

Will you consider going and being one of the missionaries with Vision Baptist Missions?
