Bible Takes Over Buddhist Altar

The goal is to reach the lost in Myanmar. We want to see Bibles taking over Buddhist altars all throughout the country. So how do we do it?

Should American Christians go and live in Myanmar and share the gospel with the people they meet? Well, maybe! But what if there were Burmese nationals who could reach their own people? They already know the languages and cultures. And they don’t require the start-up cost it would require an American to move.

But what about training? Wouldn’t a Burmese national lack the training an American would get at a Bible college or seminary?

Not necessarily. Because there’s a school in Myanmar to do the job.

Faith Baptist Raises Up Burmese Christians

Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary in Myanmar is raising up Burmese Christians to be top-notch evangelists, pastors, and missionaries. The school equips each of its graduates with the truth of God’s Word and practical wisdom for church planting and evangelism.

After graduating from the two-year program, the students are as well-equipped to share their faith as an American student graduating from an American seminary. But the Burmese students have a step-up. Because if they are looking to engage unreached people groups, they often have no further to look than their own villages and towns.

Take FBBCTS alumnus Saya Suanpu. He graduated with the desire to share his faith and make disciples among his own people. And by God’s grace, that’s exactly what he did.

When the Bible Takes Over a Buddhist Altar

About Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary

At a time in history when God is bringing huge numbers of people to Christ, seminary training is a vital key to the Great Commission in Asia. Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary in Myanmar trains young and inexperienced leaders in solid theological doctrine, helping Burmese believers become mature evangelists. These Burmese believers graduate excited and equipped to make disciples in their home cities and villages, enabling new believers throughout the country to become mature followers of Jesus Christ.

Dr. Do Suan Mung, the faithful founder of both the Bible college and seminary in Myanmar, opened the first doors to the school in 1986 and is personally still on the front lines of this educational endeavor. He is now joined by plenty of other well-trained professors as they raise up and send out their students. Between the college and seminary, hundreds of students are trained each year to go out as pastors, evangelists, and missionaries to the lost in Myanmar.

Join Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary on their mission to empower students for a life of enduring commitment to Christ, biblical fidelity, moral integrity, intellectual growth, and lasting contribution to the Kingdom of God.

Meet the President: Dr. Do Suan Mung

Dr. Do Suan Mung founded Faith Baptist Bible College in his home state of Myanmar—Chin State—in 1986. Since then, Dr. Mung has served as the president of the school, which expanded in 2003 to include Faith Baptist Theological Seminary, located in Yangon (the former capital city). The schools combined have graduated hundreds of students who are now serving the Lord in many different capacities, including evangelism, pastoral roles, church planting, missions, children's ministry, and more.

Dr. Mung tells a powerful story about how God saved him through Jesus Christ, provided for his seminary training, and led him to begin Faith Baptist. Read the full account here.

Dr. Mung and his wife have four children, who by God's grace are all serving the Lord in Myanmar or in the United States.
