Ministry History

Arabic Christian Ministries had its beginnings in Beirut, Lebanon in 1968 in the ministry of Dwight and Jeanne Billingsley. They began the Baptist Student Center (BSC) in Beirut near the American University of Beirut on Bliss Street, in order to present the gospel of Jesus Christ to University students. From BSC came the organization of the Sioufi Baptist Church in Achrafieh, Lebanon. Out of these two entities have come many believers, who came to know Jesus, and have followed the original intent of the Billingsleys. They have been taking the gospel to many parts of the world, for nearly half a century. Many others, who were not a part of the original works in Beirut, have now joined in partnership with us. In 2007 the ministry linked hands with the International Baptist Network, a world-wide network of pastors who subscribe to the same basic doctrinal beliefs. The works of those who are linked to this ministry now minister in scores of countries around the world. Gospel television programing can be seen by going to this YouTube site.

Arabic Christian Ministries is a worldwide coalition of Christian Ministries and individuals that primarily use the Arabic Language. Many people think that “Arabic” means only those involved with Islam; however there are millions of Christians whose primary language is Arabic and therefore are also referred to as Arabs. These people can be found in every country of the Middle East, Europe, Asia and the western hemisphere. Our goal is to involve these in a loose knit coalition to advance the cause of the Lord Jesus Christ.
