Baptist Missions

A Legacy

Trinity Baptist Temple is honored to be the stewards of Latin American Baptist Missions (LABM). We see it as a great purpose to continue on the legacy that was started over 40 years ago. It is through this legacy that tens of thousands have been saved and even more have been taught and ministered to. LABM spreads the gospel and preaches to the Spanish speaking people of Latin America. Over 16 cities and villages are served in Mexico as a result of this ministry.

How it All Began

LABM was founded in 1967 by Ernest C. Atchley, Sr. and his family in Mexico. Click HERE to download a brief history of LABM.

Latin American Baptist Missions not only supports pastors that we have commissioned, but we also send support to other missionaries that have been commissioned and sent by other churches or mission boards. We help support people and organizations that have the same passion and mission as we do.
