MTM - Ministry to Muslims
Who are we?
MTM (Ministry to Muslims) is a network of gospel workers who are proclaiming Christ in the Muslim communities of Sydney, making disciples and seeing small churches form. We are a ministry network under the umbrella of ENC (Evangelism & New Churches).
In God’s wisdom, he has brought the nations to us in Australia. The need and opportunity to reach the nations on our doorstep is great. There are now more than 250,000 Muslims in Sydney and their population is growing rapidly. For many years, Sydney churches lacked the initiative and know-how to reach out to Muslims and effectively disciple them. Ministry to Muslims (MTM) has sought to learn, innovate, establish new ministries and partner with existing churches to spur on ministry to Muslims.
We are committed to faithfully proclaiming the gospel of Jesus the Messiah, and that faith in him as Lord and as Saviour is the only way into God’s Kingdom and to eternal life. We do this in relationships of respect and trust, marked by loving service and gentle but clear explanations of the Holy Scriptures.
