Real 4 Christ Ministries (R4C) was started in August of 2007, after Chris Moore took his family on “vacation” to see where he grew up in Kenya as a missionary kid. God had several divine appointments planned for them and called them back to Kenya as full time missionaries. Chris and Lisa became BBFI missionaries and were commissioned from Hallmark Baptist church. Lisa went back to school (at 40 years old) to get a nursing degree, to be able to provide medical care as she shared the love of Christ with her patients. 

God blessed, and is continuing to bless, the ministry in amazing ways! There are currently 13 churches within the R4C fellowship that are receiving pastoral and leadership education. God has allowed R4C to build a medical clinic that is reaching sixteen surrounding communities and started four schools with a vibrant sponsorship program.

Chris left a legacy of love and excellence to learn from: live big, love God, love others and train leaders to make a difference in the world! The impact of our founders is immeasurable and continues to bless the people of East Africa.

Our Board

God: We believe that the Godhead eternally exists in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God, having precisely the same nature, attributes, and perfections.

Jesus:We believe in the personality and deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, death on the cross to provide for our redemption, bodily resurrection and ascension into heaven, present ministry of intercession for us, and His return to earth in power in glory.

Holy Spirit:We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit, that He performs the miracle of new birth in an unbeliever and indwells believers, enabling them to live godly lives.

Bible:We believe in the divine verbal inspiration of the Scriptures. The whole Bible, is without error. As the revelation of God, we believe the Bible to be the sole authority and sufficiency with regard to Christian faith and practice.

Man: We believe that man was originally created in the image of God. Adam fell through sin, and as a consequence of his sin, lost his spiritual life. The spiritual death, or total depravity of human nature, has been transmitted to the entire human race of man, the Man Christ Jesus alone being exempt. Thus every person is born into the world with a nature that is essentially an unchangeably sinful apart from divine grace.

Salvation:We believe that, due to the universal death through sin, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless born again. Our redemption has been accomplished solely by the blood of our Lord Jesus. We believe that the new birth of the believer comes only through faith in Christ. No other acts, such as confession, baptism, prayer, faithful service, or manifestation of certain spiritual gifts, are to be added to believing as a condition of salvation.
