Our Purpose

We are an independent Baptist ministry that facilitates the church planting movement in unevangelized countries. Our focus is to help ministries in predominantly Muslim, Hindu, or Buddhist countries. The Carpenter's Project:
  • Trains Nationals
  • Supports Church Planters
  • Funds Church Construction
  • Sponsors Evangelistic Activities

The Carpenter’s Project was instrumental in the founding of the Independent Baptist College of Asia-Pacific (Philippines), and continues to offer support to its students and faculty.

Our People

The Carpenter’s Project was founded in 2001 as a non-profit 501c3 corporation. Understanding that gifts to the ministry are designations for specific purposes, directors and advisors serve voluntarily.

Our Position

The Trinity: We believe in the triune God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each person being equal, yet not being three Gods, but one.

Verbal Inspiration: We believe in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original writings, and they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life.

Total Depravity: We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred, not only physical death, but also spiritual death which is separation from God; and that all human beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reached moral responsibility, are sinners in thought, word, and deed, and are lost without Christ.

Virgin Birth: We believe Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.

Justification by Faith: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the scriptures, and a representation and substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe on Him are justified on the single grounds of faith in His shed blood.

Blood Atonement: We believe in the shed blood of Jesus Christ as the only atonement for our sins. Resurrection of Christ: We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and His present life there as our High Priest and Advocate.

Person and Work of the Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is a person who convicts the world of sin, and regenerates, indwells, enlightens, and empowers the saved.

New birth: We believe that all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again by the Word and the Spirit, and thereby become the children of God.

Preservation of the Saints: We believe that all who have been born again into the family of God are sealed by the Holy Spirit and preserved unto the day of redemption.

The Church: We believe that the Church of Jesus Christ was begun at Pentecost and is composed solely of believers; that it is the body and bride of Christ, and distinct from Israel.

Lord's Supper and Baptism: We believe that Jesus Christ instituted the Lord's supper to commemorate His death till He comes. We believe in baptism by immersion as an ordained testimony, portraying the believer's union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

The Second Coming of Christ: We believe in "that blessed hope", the premillenial, personal, and imminent coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in the air for His saints which shall be followed by the personal, visible, glorious return of Christ to the earth with His saints to execute judgement and reign in righteousness.

Resurrection of the Just and the Unjust: We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost.

Separation from the World: We believe that all the saved are called into a life of separation from all worldly and sinful practices as well as alliances with unbelievers.
