There are over 1.75 billion South Asians in the world. The vast majority do not follow Jesus and many regard Christianity and the church as unrelated to their culture.
Our vision is for South Asians to become disciples of Jesus.
We work with partners in South Asia and the Diaspora, encourage prayer and connect people for effective outreach.
Jesus came into the world to demonstrate God’s character of love and justice and to open the way to God. He did this by helping people understand that God loved them, healing the sick, showing solidarity with the poor and marginalised, and confronting religious hypocrisy. He didn’t turn anyone away, or condemn guilty people but forgave them. He demonstrated that he has authority and power over nature, evil spirits and even life itself. He was crucified to take the punishment we deserve for being selfish and self-centred, and came back to life a few days later demonstrating that he has authority to do this.
