The Scott Holcomb Family

Missionaries to Croatia

Scott, Traci

Trinity, Matthew, Xavier

 

Please allow me to introduce the Holcomb Family. I am Scott Holcomb and am a recent graduate of Norris Bible Baptist Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. A few weeks prior to graduation, a missionary shared with me his burden for Croatia and the great need for the True Gospel Light there. After much prayer and seeking of Godís will, the Lord gave me a burden for the people of Croatia, and a peace in my heart about surrendering my life to go to that country in Eastern Europe. We are being sent by Faith Baptist Church in Aransas Pass, Texas, where Chris Boatman is Pastor.
   
I received Christ as my personal Savior at the age of twenty-three. Our church has a heart for missions, and the Lord began to burden me for missions about a year after I was saved. I surrendered my life and prepared for Bible college soon after.

    
My wife, Traci, also received Christ the same year I was saved. She, along with our three children, Matthew (12), Xavier (10), and Trinity (7), are excited about serving our Lord in
Croatia.

Our Ministry

Philosophy of Missions:
I believe that God is interested in reaching people with the salvation message throughout the world.

(Matthew 28:18-20)
I believe that this same power that Christ gave to His disciples is available to us as Christians to go and spread the Gospel to all nations.

(Acts 1:8)
I believe that this verse is a clear command from Scripture to share our faith with those around us, in Texas and around the world.  In addition, we also believe that God calls faithful believers out of local churches, as He did with Paul and Barnabas in Acts 13, to serve as missionaries and go "to the uttermost part of the earth" and preach the Gospel.

My Goal:
To preach the Gospel to a country blinded by Catholicism, see them saved, baptized, grounded in sound doctrine, train nationals and start indigenous Baptist Churches. Just to the south and east of Croatia are three countries (Serbia, Bosnia, and Montenegro) that all speak Croatian, but they have no independent Baptist Churches. My aim is to see some Croatians surrender, and go into those countries and spread the Gospel of Christ.

My Doctrinal Beliefs:
- I believe in all the Baptist Doctrines and Fundamentals of the Faith.
- I believe that Godís Holy Word is preserved for us today in the Authorized King James Version.  I believe that inspiration without preservation would be meaningless and reject all other translations.
- I am not a believer of Calvinism. I believe man chooses of his own free will to reject Christ.

(Matthew 23:37; John 5:40)

- I believe God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

(II Peter 3:9; I Timothy 2:4)
- I believe that the Pastor should be the husband of one wife, separated only by death.

(I Timothy 3:2; Romans 7:1-3)
- I believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins.

(John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-l0; 1 Peter 1:18-l9)
