Serving in Mission International
Ministry among Muslims
Welcome to China, home to one-fifth of the world's population. In Nebuchadnezzer's time, the ancient city of Xi'an in Shaanxi Province was the capital of China and the largest city in the world. During the time of explorer Marco Polo, Xi'an was brought to the attention of the outside world. The "Silk Road" carried China's precious silk to Rome, Constantinople and Jerusalem. It also carried Islam, Buddhism and Christianity into China. Today China attracts millions of tourists from all over the world.
Our vision is to see people from all ethnic groups and languages in western China worshipping around the throne of God, together with ethnic Han believers.
Since the expulsion of foreign missions and missionaries in 1949, the Church has seen sustained growth, and it is now estimated that there are over 100 million Christians. This growth has occurred through both the official churches and house churches. Biblical teaching and leadership development are in great demand.
Western China borders Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Myanmar and is home to almost 100 million Muslim and Tibetan Buddhist people. This is a spiritually needy area where there are few Christians and churches.
There are great opportunities for Christians to work or study in China in order to build relationships for Christ and to partner with the church to reach minority people groups of Western China.
