China Inland Mission China Inland Mission was formed under a deep sense of China’s pressing need, and with earnest desire, constrained by the love of Christ and the hope of His coming, to obey His command to preach the Gospel to every creature. Its aim is, by the help of God, to bring the Chinese to a saving knowledge of the Love of God in Christ, by means of itinerant and localized work throughout the whole of the interior of China. Character: The Mission is Evangelical, and embraces members of all the leading Denominations of Christians. Methods: Were somewhat unusual and peculiar were adopted for working the newly-proposed organization. It was determined: 1. That duly qualified candidates for missionary labor should be accepted without restriction as to denomination, provided there was soundness in the faith in all fundamental truths.
3. Missionaries would not go into debt and solicit funds. They could only minister to those connected with the Mission and as the funds from time to time might allow. 4. Support: The Mission is supported entirely by the free-will offerings of the Lord’s People. The needs of the work are laid before God in prayer, no personal solicitations or collections being authorized. No more expended than is thus received, going into debt is considered consistent with the principle of entire dependence upon God.
