OUR MISSION STATEMENT:
the Good News from God’s Word in as many languages as possible; in order to transform our present troubled world into a better and peaceful one.
THE BIBLICAL PRINCIPLES OF WORDONE AND BEARING PRECIOUS SEED:
"Bearing Precious Seed" was the revelation of God's commandment to Dr. Don M. Fraser in the late 1960’s, at Rolling Hills Baptist Church, Fort Worth, Texas, to publish and distribute the scriptures (Romans 16:25, 26).
Since then, thousands of tons of scriptures have been sent to all parts of the world,
in many languages, and more than 2,000 Independent Baptist churches have been
involved in this local church ministry, in obedience to God's commandment. Brother
Fraser realized this great work must be done by local churches (God's New Testament
priests - Revelation 1:5, 6) by teaching men to "observe all things whatsoever" Jesus
Christ commanded (Matthew 28:19, 20). The name "Bearing Precious Seed" is taken
from Psalm 126:5, 6, and is not specific to any church. It signifies the work of getting the
word of God, free of charge, into the hands of people around the world, by obedience of
1. God's promise is in the name. "He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing
precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with
2. The commandment of writing to the king: Deut. 17:14-20. "When thou art
come unto the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, and shalt possess it, and
shalt dwell therein, and shalt say, I will set a king over me, like as all the nations that
are about me;…. And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that
he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the
Levites: And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that
He may learn to fear the LORD his God, to keep all the words of this law and these
statutes, to do them: That his heart be not lifted up above his brethren, and that he turn
not aside from the commandment, to the right hand, or to the left:..."
And, the commandment of preservation: Col. 4:15, 16.
3. The Old Testament was entrusted to the Jews: Romans 3:1, 2
4. The New Testament was entrusted to the Church: Rom. 16: 25/26; Col. 4:15/16
- All of the writings of the New Testament were entrusted to the church of Antioch.
5. "By Love Serve One Another" principle: Gal. 5:13; 6:2,5,6.
6. We do not change, add, subtract, or delete any word or words from the Word of
God; (We DIVIDE and MULTIPLY the Word). Rev. 22:17, 18. That is the principle of
God, and followed by the meaning of "Textus Receptus" or Received Text. Col. 4:15, 16.
7. We do not get into other servants' business; we don’t criticize, or judge anyone,
Rom. 14:10. Rather, we help when we are asked. Jn. 4: 35- 38.
8. We believe, respect, and follow the genealogy of Jesus, the Word of God- Jn.
1:1; which traces His seed back to God Himself according to the accounts of Matthew
and Luke. Therefore; everything we publish must have its "genealogy" who, where, when
it was published, and what source of text we are publishing from.
9. The principle of the School of the Scriptures - S.O.S. is the same as of Jesus'
"Do and Teach" Acts 1:1. We do not teach, and not do. S.O.S. has been entrusted by Dr.
Don M. Fraser to Historic Baptist Church and her Pastor, Dr. Nash S. Desent, the actual
President. The Spanish Section of S.O.S has been entrusted to Dr. Francisco Guerrero.
10. Local Churches are the International Headquarters for the Scripture Work. We
honor the independence of each local church, and according to the commandment Paul
gave the churches of Galatia - to by love serve one another - we are prepared to help
churches learn the publishing work. Brother Fraser conceived the S.T.A.N.D.A.R.D.
Plan, by which the whole world would be given the scriptures. This is basically achieved
by churches agreeing with one another to target certain nations through their national
language. The S.T.A.N.D.A.R.D. Plan is short for Scriptures To All Nations Divided And
Regionally Distributed. With ten major languages we can reach over 90% of the world's
11. The scripture work is not an option but a commandment. The levels of church
involvement progress thusly: The first level is distribution of the scripture portions "to
every creature." The areas expand from Jerusalem and Judea, to Samaria and the
Uttermost; or from your own neighborhood to the outlying regions, all the way to the end
of the world. The second level is assembly of the scriptures; then thirdly, to full
publication; and fourthly, to teaching the work in other churches - i.e., reproduction of
12. The S.O.S. Curricula is organized to teach men to obey all things whatsoever
Christ commanded, and the scripture work is integrated (part of) into this commandment.
The curricula will work in any nation with any saved people. It does not strive to
duplicate the American model of a Baptist church or an American Bible College - it is
designed to conform believers to the image of Jesus Christ using the Biblical (i.e.
scriptural) methods, order of teaching, and substance of teaching. The Holy Bible is the
only textbook. For more information, please review the Baptist International Handbook,
