With a sharp focus on reaching East Asia’s unreached people, OMF remains true to a relentless vision birthed more than 150 years ago. As James Hudson Taylor walked along Brighton Beach, wrestling with God, pleading for lost souls in China, God honored that prayer and a few months China Inland Mission was born.
This experience changed Taylor and he devoted his life to planting biblical church movements in every region of East Asia. Hudson Taylor’s dream continues, reaching beyond the shores of England, spreading across East Asia and eventually finding its way to the United States. Over the years, that vision has expanded to include East Asia’s peoples wherever they are, including refugees, immigrants, professionals and international students.
We share the good news of Jesus Christ in all its fullness with East Asia’s peoples to the glory of God.
As advocates for every people group in East Asia, we encourage, enable and equip the body of Christ to serve God’s purposes among them.
Through God’s grace, we aim to see an indigenous, biblical church movement in each people group of East Asia, evangelizing their own people and reaching out in mission to other peoples.
We will see growing movements of God’s people, prayer and resources released and upheld to bring the hope of Christ to East Asia’s people.
