Who we are

Born out of a desire to see the God reach the ends of the earth with the Gospel, and with a special call to the Kingdom of Swaziland, Bound Together: Swaziland Partnership holds forth a simple goal: for the Kingdom of Swaziland, in its entirety, to know and love the Lord. Although the goal is singular and simple, it is not an easy task. The Kingdom of Swaziland presents its own set of challenges in being reached, and Bound Together is a strategic partnership of American Baptist churches and the Baptist Church of Swaziland to share with the unreached of the country. This partnership has identified five core areas of work to assist in this goal, and to facilitate the creation of reproducing disciples in the Kingdom. These areas meet both the spiritual and physical needs of the people, and are biblically based. We desire to be people of the call to the go, found in Matthew 28. To join us in this missions, contact us here.
