About Us

We are OMF International, formerly China Inland Mission founded by James Hudson Taylor in 1865.

OMF International is....

international • interdenominational • committed to evangelism

As a Christian faith mission, we have proved God’s faithfulness over 140 years. We are looking for called, creative, committed co-workers to glorify God through the urgent evangelisation of Asias billions.

What we do

We start churches in both urban and rural areas. Japan is one of the least reached people groups of the world with less than 1% Christian population. There continues to be a huge need to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Therefore we come alongside the Japanese church in evangelism, discipleship and church planting to meet this need.

We evangelize. In Japanese society there are groups which are not yet being effectively reached. As God sends gifted colleagues we will use innovative approaches, technology and resources to evangelize these groups.

We serve and encourage the national church. We value personal and organizational fellowship with pastors and other missionaries in Japan. This mutual encouragement and vision-sharing builds relationships in Christ.
