We are a mission church to Badjaos, an Islam ethic group living along the coastline of Batangas City, Philippines. Our mission is to reach out to the Badjaos and let them experience the love of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The church started last Dec 14, 1999 when God sent an independent missionary couple to minister to the Badjao people living on the island of Malitam near the coast of Batangas City. Ps. Albert and Sis. Ellen Santiago have lived with the Badjaos for more than 15 years now preaching the Gospel through providing love, care, education, medical help, food and assisting in every way to help the people. Many times their lives were endangered with sickness, disease, death threat and opposition from outside and within the Badjao tribe, accidents, yet the church has grown strong through the years and have produced strong Christian leaders among the tribe.
