Exalting Christ Ministries International (ECMI) ) is the missions sending agency of Community Bible Church. ECMI was founded in the spring of 2002 because of a burden for, and strong commitment to participate in, the training, sending, and supporting of men–both nationals and U.S. missionaries–who have a passion for Christ-exalting and Christ-centered ministry. They are men who are called by God to spread the Gospel to all the peoples of the earth. Exalting Christ Ministries International (ECMI) exists as a ministry of Community Bible Church of Vallejo, California to help like-minded missionaries meet our mutual, biblical obligation “…to make disciples of all the nations” (Matthew 28:19).
The ECMI missionary-sending agency is under the governance of the Elder Board of Community Bible Church. The chairman of the elder board and business administrator for the church is responsible for the day to day oversight and operation of ECMI. ECMI has its own accounting and banking structure that ensures the proper recording, receipting and care of income, documentation that is adequate and clear, proper and timely disbursement of funds, and the monthly reconciling of accounts. Because we want to direct all of the financial support we receive and manage on behalf of each individual missionary toward that man’s ministry on the field, there are no administrative fees for our service.
Our primary focus is to send and support godly men who have been called to plant, establish, and strengthen local churches. This involves the development of local church leadership and the training of pastors and teachers around the world. We help such men meet their financial and other needs as they carry out the work of Christ in their varied ministries and cultures. As we send a servant out, our relationship will continue to build in the shepherding of the missionary on the field.
Missionaries that we send out and support are committed to Christ-centered expository preaching of the Word of God. They also hold to the inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture, the doctrines of grace, the all-sufficiency of Christ, and the power of the Spirit and the Word.
