WE ARE ON A MISSION
Our mission is to glorify God by serving and partnering with local churches in Post-Soviet communities; to motivate, mobilize and multiply the church and to inspire hope through mercy ministries.
WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE
The Bible is God’s word, final authority in all things, or code of conduct; relevant in all of life.
WE KNOW THE POWER OF PRAYER
Prayer is foundational, reflecting our dependence on God; from it flow vision, purpose and ministry.
WE BELIEVE IN HUMAN DIGNITY
We are made in God’s image but marred by sin. Each person should be seen through God’s eyes. We must declare their value, restore and maintain their dignity.
WE HAVE A PASSION FOR PEOPLE
God passionately loves every person and desires to see them reconciled to Himself. We share His passion and strive to see them restored to a right relationship with God and others.
WE AGREE WITH SERVANT LEADERSHIP
The Biblical example of leadership is to serve others. We come alongside national and mission partners to serve as co-laborers for the Gospel.
WE ARE THE BODY OF CHRIST
The Body of Christ is unique and diverse. We encourage and maintain unity by treating each believing member and church with respect and equality.
WE ENCOURAGE CHURCH PARTNERSHIPS
The Church is central to our mission. We actively seek partnerships with both local and national churches with the intention of fulfilling the Great Commission.
WE HAVE A GREAT GOD
We look back in awe of the goodness of our great God. For more than 22 years He has enabled us to send multiple short-term teams who have ministered to thousands of children, young people and adults. He has graciously provided millions of pounds of supplies and equipment. The work of SMI continues and we believe the best is yet to come.
