Our missionaries are not all the same. They come from a wide variety of backgrounds, have different gifts and cover a range of ages.

But they are united for mission

  • They are Christians belonging to a local church
  • They feel a clear sense of call to serve in cross-cultural mission
  • Their home church has confirmed their call and has sent them to serve as missionaries
  • They are committed to biblical truth and to evangelism
  • They seek to live a godly life in fellowship with the Lord
  • They have been Bible College trained and/or are appropriately qualified
  • They are adaptable and are prepared to face hardship
  • They are conscious of their weaknesses and depend on the Lord to supply all their needs

‘This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.’ – 1 John 4:9-10

Our approach to world mission is based on the following convictions about the Gospel, Church, People and the Lord.

Committed to the GOSPEL

  • We proclaim, teach and live the truths of biblical, historic Christianity
  • We believe that every word of the Bible was inspired by God through human authors, so that the Bible as originally given is in its entirety the Word of God, without error and fully reliable in fact and doctrine
  • Our mandate is the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ (to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising … and teaching them to obey all I have commanded you.”)
  • Our priority is to take the gospel to unreached people and to serve under-resourced churches

Committed to the CHURCH

  • Missionaries are sent by churches, not agencies
  • Our missionaries have a clear sense of call to missionary service that has been confirmed by their local church
  • We serve a growing number of churches in the UK, the Republic of Ireland and around the world, working closely with them to develop global vision as well as in sending and supporting missionaries
  • We partner with many national/international churches/agencies in areas such as pioneer evangelism, student ministry, church planting and pastoral and leadership training

Committed to PEOPLE

  • We aim to be a family, not simply an organisation
  • We aim to be flexible – our structures are there to serve people as they serve the Lord
  • We have missionaries serving in over 40 countries worldwide and are happy to enable missionaries to go anywhere in the world, if possible
  • In partnership with sending and receiving churches and projects pastoral care of our missionaries is a priority

Committed to the LORD

  • We acknowledge that the work of mission is the Lord’s work, not ours
  • We seek to put to use the tools that God has given to us for his mission – his life-changing Word spoken in the power of the Holy Spirit, in prayerful dependence on the Lord
  • Our missionaries look to the Lord to raise up teams of supporters who will identify with them in prayer and financial support
