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.
It is the responsibility of God’s people to respond to His heart for the lost; He does not desire that any should perish, but rather that all should repent and live. We are moved by the compassion of God to reach, with urgency, those who have not heard the Gospel. The only answer to human alienation from God is to be found in the Gospel. It is a message which needs to be communicated in forms which are accessible and intelligible to hearers.
We are called to take the Good News across barriers to make disciples for Christ. The great commission anticipates that as Christ is made known, the Holy Spirit will bring believers to saving faith in Christ. Believers will be taught the word of God and obedience to the Lordship of Christ.
SIM has a responsibility to continue to expand the mission frontier of the proclamation of Christ, so that the light of Christ might shine in dark places where there is some Gospel presence and influence into those dark corners where Christ was yet to be made know.
We are compelled by love to make Him known. We are also compelled by this love to engage in acts of compassion towards those He has called us to serve. Christ’s love for lost mankind moves us to love Him, love the lost and act in compassion.
This is the DNA of SIM. Our pioneers crossed barriers to go where the Lord was calling to make Christ known. Christ crossed a barrier between us and the Father to reconcile us to Himself. As Christ broke down barriers, nothing should stand between us and making Christ known to those who have never heard.
The Gospel is to be proclaimed intelligibly and credibly. It is a message to be spoken, heard, believed and confessed. Yet if it is to be credible to those who hear it, the message of Christ must to be proclaimed by those whose everyday lives are shaped by the Gospel in all its dimensions.
Our disciple-making ministries are intrinsically connected to the planting and building of churches whose spiritual health is shaped by the teaching of the Bible. Disciples of Christ will become active participants in Gospel-shaped churches which are committed to reaching those who have not heard.
SIM has long embraced diversity of ministries. All of these offer opportunity to fulfil the great commission of making disciples of Christ who embrace the call to reach those who live and die without Him. All gifts and skills are valued as we focus our energies towards those without Christ.
We are a part of the church and we serve church. We have a specialised role within the church of Christ as partners in the Gospel. We collaborate with different congregations of the Lord’s people wherever they are found.
The whole church of Christ is commissioned by Him to participate in His work in the world. Yet many barriers to full participation in cross-cultural ministry exist. We work to overcome external barriers and remove internal ones so that global mission may advance whether through SIM or not.
