What you want missions to be and do!
MERF is engaged in encouraging and strengthening the Church throughout the Middle East, North and East Africa and other Muslim lands through:
1. Evangelistic Outreach
MERF is reaching Muslims and others through gospel broadcasts, web sites, and literature in the Arabic, Farsi, Dinka, Nuer, Amharic, Oromo, Somali, Javanese, Sundanese, Bugis, Makassar and Toraja languages. In each country, growing numbers of non-Christians are responding, expressing serious interest in the liberating truth of the Gospel.
2. Church Extension
MERF is helping expand the Kingdom of Jesus Christ by assisting national churches which are already active in Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Chad, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, the Arabian Gulf and Indonesia. New believers are being discipled in these national churches and new congregations are being formed.
3. Biblical Training
MERF is discipling converts and church leaders by equipping those already knowledgeable in the local language and culture. It recognizes that the Lord Jesus Christ has raised up indigenous missionaries to serve Him in Arab and Muslim lands. It trains such workers to serve under local Reformed and Presbyterian churches.
4. Diaconal Aid
MERF reaches out with Christ's compassion to the suffering. Based on biblical principles, works of mercy are exercised by a consistent ministry of word and deed (Gal. 6:10). Because of this, those in need are being helped spiritually and materially.
