New purpose and mission statements for the work of Serving In Mission internationally were formally adopted at the start of 2016. Allied to the Serving In MIssion UK vision statement, they encapsulate everying SIM is about and put the gospel of Jesus Christ at the centre of all we do.
Purpose and Mission Statement
Convinced that no one should live and die without hearing God’s good news, we believe that he has called us to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in communities where he is least known.
Therefore, compelled by God’s great love and empowered by the Holy Spirit:
We cross barriers to proclaim the crucified and risen Christ, expressing his love and compassion among those who live and die without him
We make disciples who will trust and obey Jesus, and become part of Christ-centred churches
We work together with churches to fulfil God’s mission across cultures locally and globally
We facilitate the participation in cross-cultural ministry of those whom God is calling
SIM UK Vision Statement
We work hand-in-hand with evangelical churches to send and receive gospel workers equipped for cross-cultural mission wherever people live and die without hearing God’s good news.
We do this by:
developing and promoting opportunities for churches to send and receive cross-cultural gospel workers to places where people will otherwise live and die without hearing the good news about Jesus
envisioning and enabling churches to engage prayerfully in God’s mission to the nations through multi-cultural gospel outreach, compassion and discipleship, both locally and globally
training and supporting missionaries so that they are helped to practice integrated biblical discipleship as they proclaim and promote God’s word where there is no witness
We work to see gospel workers worldwide wherever there is no gospel witness.
