WHO WE ARE
We are disciples of Jesus Christ who are led to carry the good news of Jesus Christ to greater Sao Paulo, Brazil.
We are a not-for-profit charitable corporation formed under the laws of North Carolina, which has 501(c)(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code. We have a North American Team based in North Carolina and a South American Team based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Generally, we desire to advance the cause of Christ wherever and whenever possible. Specifically, we are called to partner with Baptist churches in greater Sao Paulo, Brazil to tell others about forgiveness of sin and eternal live in heaven through Jesus Christ our Lord. We conduct one major mission effort to Sao Paulo each year, usually in May or June. Our mission emphasis is evangelism.
In 1988 the International Mission Board (IMB) of the Southern Baptist Convention established a 5-year partnership between the NC Baptist Convention and the Baptist Convention of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Friends of Good News Missions leaders and founder Ralph Metcalf were the first to go in 1989. We have gone each year since to greater Sao Paulo. We have witnessed to thousands about salvation in Jesus Christ and thousands have come to faith in Him.
