Mission Statement: The mission of the State Convention of Baptists in Indiana Disaster Relief, in cooperation with the Southern Baptist North American Mission Board Disaster Relief, is to train, credential and prepare Born Again Believers to respond in a lovingly Christ-like manner to people at home and around the world affected by a disastrous event and support their volunteer efforts by providing administrative, organizational or other resources necessary for their ministry to be successful.

The philosophy behind Southern Baptist disaster relief efforts has been summed up in the phrase, "A cup of cold water in Jesus name." We are following the example of Jesus of Nazareth when He fed the 5,000 and the 4,000, and His teachings in the parable of the Good Samaritan and Matthew 25:32-46.

Southern Baptist disaster relief is Christian love in action, meeting urgent needs of hurting humanity in crisis situations. Disaster response is meeting those needs with loving care and timely response as James 2:15-16 instructs us. There is no hidden agenda or ulterior motive.

For more information, contact the Indiana Disaster Relief Coordinator, John Rogers.
