Our mission is to help men and women grow in Christ by understanding who they are in Him and as Him. Col 1:27,28 Our hope is that people will learn to live out the "mystery" of their union with Him. Gal. 2:20, Jn 15:5
SIM is an international, interdenominational Christian mission organization. It was established in 1893 by its three founders, Walter Gowans and Rowland Bingham of Canada and Thomas Kent of the United States. The initials originally stood for "Soudan Interior Mission," Soudan being an older spelling of the Sudan region of West Africa. After various name changes and mergers, the mission simply goes by "SIM" today. In French-speaking countries it is known as "Société Internationale Missionnaire." It is made up of united organizations that began more than 100 years ago, including Africa Evangelical Fellowship, Andes Evangelical Mission, International Christian Fellowship and Sudan Interior Mission. SIM is also a member of the Forum of Bible Agencies International. In 2017 SIM had more than 4,000 workers, therefrom 2,000 active missionaries, from more than 60 countries serving in over 70 countries in 6 continents (principally South America, Africa and Asia).
