Welcome to Tanzania, a nation of lavish beauty and abundant wildlife, situated on the east coast of Africa.
By faith, SIM sees:
- making the Gospel available to the southern coastal people.
- Christian growth in local churches.
- addressing the needs of the people in the community.
- believers reaching out to other groups.
SIM missionaries take the news of Jesus' forgiveness to people groups in the south, building strong churches. The coastal people are stricter in their adherence to other religions, with much spiritism in evidence. SIM also equips the existing churches to reach out to the surrounding community. Of the 29 people groups yet unreached with the Gospel, nine are in the south, SIM's main focus.
SIM missionaries are committed to evangelism among unreached groups in the south and coastal area, where no single SIM-related church exists at this time.
