BMS was founded in 1792 and missionaries from William Carey onwards have sought to make Jesus known and his abundant life a reality among the poor and marginalised.
BMS World Mission - What We Do
Evangelising, planting churches and supporting networks of culturally relevant Christian communities, formed and led by indigenous believers, not colonial mission. Helping poor people to thrive, helping communities help themselves, training, supporting and coming alongside them to enable an experience of economic, social and sustainable wellbeing. Enabling girls, women, boys and men to access education and enhance their life opportunities. Empowering those on the margins with knowledge, skills and hope.
Training doctors, treating patients, counselling the traumatised and enabling flourishing, through prevention and care, from the beginning of life to its end. Fighting injustice by educating about rights and advocating for those without a voice. Challenging the structures that oppress and setting captives free.
Empowering and equipping local leaders with skills, support and a biblical understanding of Christ-centred leadership, and thereby maximising impact. Responding to disasters, man-made and natural, collaboratively meeting immediate needs, enabling long-term recovery and building future resilience.
