This thesis contains a history of Bethany Fellowship Missions against the background of developments in the North American Protestant missionary enterprise from 1945 until 1993. In chapters one and two I present the history of North American Protestant organisations and of post-World War II missions. In chapters three through five I discuss the history of Bethany Fellowship, its theology, and major changes that have occurred in the organisation since its inception. In chapters six through eight I discuss Bethany's missionary outreach in Brazil, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico. In chapter nine I discuss developments in post-World War II missions and how those developments have affected Bethany's missionary programme. In chapter ten I discuss Bethany's missions' theory. In chapter eleven I draw my conclusions. My hypothesis in this thesis is that Bethany Fellowship Missions is a useful window into the world of conservative North American evangelical missions for two reasons. First, as a member of the Evangelical Foreign Mission Association, Bethany is an example of North American evangelical missions confessionally. Second, because of its distinctives it is also an example of the extraordinary complexity to be found among such missions.
