Dave Darling has been the Associate Pastor at Blessed Hope Baptist Church since February 2014, prior to that he served as Treasurer and Deacon since 1998.
I have been a member of Blessed Hope Baptist Church since it’s beginning. In 2015 and 2016 my wife and I had the privilege to be a part of Couriers for Christ campaigns serving in Eastern Europe.
Since our first campaign in the spring of 2019, the Lord has allowed several individuals to come along and help us in unique ways. We are grateful for God's network of believers across the country and globe, each doing their part in following their Saviour. Final Fight Bible Radio has been used of the Lord to share our vision and mission with thousands of other Christians around the country who have each done their part in helping to enable the completion of these campaigns. We are grateful for FFBR's commitment to getting the word out.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO
Some people may ask, “Why are you doing that?” Or, “Why are you traveling to the other side of the world to hand out booklets?” Our Great Commission given by the Lord Himself was to, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15b).
In accord with this command, we take the gospel to many different countries to hand out the Gospel of Jesus Christ that is contained in the Books of John and Romans. Unlike America, where many people are relatively familiar with the gospel, many people in distant lands have never heard a clear presentation of the gospel, some never even having held a copy of God’s precious word.
Within the pages of those John and Romans booklets is contained the plan of salvation—God’s perfect, precise plan on how a person can escape the damnation of hell, become a child of God, and spend eternity in heaven. They contain the answer of how Jesus Christ died for the sins of all mankind-including your own! “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” (Rom 5:8). The scriptures also say, “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Rom 6:23). And Jesus Christ, the Son of God, God manifest in the flesh said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6b).
The Great Commission, however, is not only an endeavor to reach lost people in distant lands, it is equally vital that we appeal to our neighbors and friends that they too might find salvation by receiving Jesus Christ personally. Friend, maybe you are reading this and have never trusted Jesus Christ—and Him alone—to save your soul. You may be a pretty decent person, you may attend church regularly, but in John 3:3, Jesus Christ told a very righteous man, “Verily, verily I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Perhaps you, like the lost in faraway lands, need to put aside your own “good works” and religiosity in order that you might simply and believingly call upon the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and receive Him as your personal Savior. Every man, without exception, independent of his cultural background, must be born again, as Jesus said, or he is just another Hell-bound lost man. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13). That is why we do what we do, but we are as concerned about our lost neighbors and fellow countrymen, as we are of the more distant heathen. What about you? What will you do with Jesus Christ?
