"For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake." (2 Corinthians 4:5)
We believe that the hope for the world, and for France in particular, is found in the good news that God provided Jesus Christ as a Savior for sinners, and that those who turn away from sin to Jesus Christ in belief escape eternal damnation and obtain eternal joy in God. Yet very few people in France have learned of this hope.
Due to centuries of false religion and decades of secularism, France is today a dark and needy country. We desire to relocate to France to proclaim the hope of the Gospel to people “having no hope, and without God the world” (Ephesians 2:12). (See what we believe about the Gospel here.) The purpose of this site is to share our burden with you. We are a missionary team comprised of two families, the Bixbys and the Coles, who are sent out by Cleveland Park Bible Church of Spartanburg, SC. We are currently working to plant a church in the Val de France, a group of six cities north of Paris. We hope you will take a little time to peruse our site to learn more about our burden.
