"You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth." Rev 5:9-10
We believe that God's heart and plan, as revealed from Genesis to Revelation, is that people from every people group on the planet will come to worship God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
St Silas seeks to join with God in fulfilling this plan through our involvement with cross-cultural outreach and ministry, both locally and globally.
local cross-cultural mission
see our pages for International Students.
If people from every people group on the planet are to come to worship Jesus Christ, then Christians will need to go to them and share with them the good news. As a church we are committed to sending and supporting people called to leave their own culture and enter another as witnesses to Christ. The people and agencies which we partner with are working in various contexts around the world. They would value your prayers and would be happy if you wanted to make contact to find our how you can play your part in overseas mission.
