Our History and Mission
Regular Baptist Press International (formerly Gospel Literature Services or GLS) began in 1973 and exists to provide gospel literature—or the funds to produce that literature on the fields—to national churches, national pastors, and missionaries of independent Baptist faith mission agencies. Though the names are similar, Regular Baptist Press International and Regular Baptist Press are separate entities with different functions. Through the Biblical Baptist Partnership International (formerly International Partnership of Fundamental Baptist Ministries), Regular Baptist Press International extends its influence by supplying Biblical resources worldwide to partnering associations and their affiliated churches. While the resources are produced initially in English, some of the partners are translating them into the heart language of the people whom they serve.
Regular Baptist Press International primarily sends Sunday School and Vacation Bible School materials to national churches, but it also produces tracts in multiple languages and funds the publication of discipleship and leadership training books in English and other national languages. When national pastors want a specific title in their language a partnership agreement is established. The nationals agree to translate and RBPI raises the funds to publish the new translation. Millions of dollars’ worth of such material has helped hundreds of Sunday Schools during their formative years.
The mission of Regular Baptist Press International is to supply Biblical resources worldwide to enable developing Baptist ministries to fulfill the Great Commission.
