But that on the good ground are they, which in an honest and good heart,

 having heard the word, keep it, and bring forth fruit with patience.


Welcome to the Good Ground Ministries Website. Here you will discover the ongoing work that God has called the Badgett family to in South Africa. Our work, currently here in the White River area of South Africa, is the work of Missions and Missions is the work of planting churches. Looking at our theme verse the Lord teaches us that there are hearts that are prepared for the Seed of the Word of God to take root, and bring into the world abundant fruit to His glory. Those with prepared hearts can hear the gospel, and keep it, and bring forth fruit themselves. Please pray with us for those people, that God will prepare their hearts to hear and keep this gospel. The “new and Living way” is a reference to Hebrews 10:20 regarding Christ’s sacrifice on the Cross. There Christ has made for all today, a living road to a freshly slain sacrifice. A sacrifice that speaks of the blood and death of the sinless Saviour. The power of Christ’s sacrifice has not diminished and the living way is open to all who will believe.
