Interserve Canada is Registered as BMMF International Service Fellowship
Since 1852We share Jesus' love in practical, wholistic ways.
It started in 1852, when a few women decided to put their faith into action. They went to South Asia with their professional skills as nurses, to live and work among those with no access to the Gospel. These women inspired a movement of ordinary Christians stepping out in faith to live wholistically and make Jesus known.
Over 172 years later, this movement of Love in Action continues through Interserve. We now have over 800 Partners from over 15 National Offices around the world. We live and work alongside the peoples of Asia and the Arab World, in their home countries and in Canada.
In partnership with the local church, we tackle marginalization and disadvantage. Together, we cultivate tangible Love that transforms lives and communities.
Statement of faith
We believe that there is one God who has revealed Himself to be three eternal persons whom we confess as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Father is the Almighty Creator of heaven and earth and He so loves men and women that He sent Jesus Christ to save them from condemnation and eternal death.
Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became fully human and by His sacrificial death on the Cross and by His resurrection from the dead, provided the redemption which saves those who come to Him in repentance and faith.
The Holy Spirit continues Christ's work of convicting of sin and creating faith. He imparts unity amongst God's people and to them He gives power and love as well as gifts for different kinds of ministry.
We accept that all men and women are by nature spiritually unresponsive to God and are disobedient to God's will. Each person needs to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit, in order to receive eternal life.
We acknowledge that the Church is God's instrument for mission and evangelisation. The local congregation in its worship, sacraments and fellowship, together with its evangelism and social care witnesses to the love and justice of God.
We affirm that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the uniquely inspired Word of God and is the only and wholly trustworthy test of faith and conduct.
We confess Jesus Christ to be the only Saviour and Lord and we affirm His deity, virgin birth, incarnation, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, ascension and personal return.
