Baja Presbyterian Missions, Inc., promotes Christ’s message of hope in Baja California in partnership with the Northwest Border Presbytery of the Mexico Presbyterian Church. Their vision includes the mission to plant and grow Presbyterian churches in Baja by raising money to help the Mexican Presbytery purchase Baja land and buildings, to fund and oversee Baja church construction projects, and to supplement a Baja pastor’s salary until each church is self-sufficient. In the past 52 years, they have helped start 34 mission churches, including 12 in Tijuana and five in Mexicali. Their 18th annual Baja Day Trip was May 18, 2019, visiting the newly donated churches Monte Pacifico, Monte Sinai, and Monte Sion in Tijuana. These churches were built by Korean Presbyterians and recently donated to the Presbiterio Fronterizo Noroccidental, our Mexican Presbytery of the Northwest.
