Vision Received Vision, Passed On – The History of EMS 1948 – 1998

By Panya Baba

The Birth and Growth of

the Evangelical Missionary Society

of the Evangelical Church of West Africa

(EMS of ECWA

Introduction

Say to them, ‘As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord,

I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live.’  Ezekiel 33:11

The Bible gives a clear picture of God’s heart concerning lost sinners. If the condition of the lost is clearly understood, those who believe in Christ will do all they can to see that this Gospel of the Kingdom is preached to as many as possible. One of the ways this has been accomplished is through the establishment of mission organisations or agencies that work alongside churches to facilitate the proclamation of the Gospel. The Sudan Interior Mission (SIM) is one such organization whose first missionaries had the burden to reach the interior of Africa, especially the geographical area known, prior to colonial rule, as the Central Sudan. They arrived in this land, now known as Nigeria, in the year 1893.

They arrived in this land, now known as Nigeria, in the year 1893. After years of faithful witnessing and teaching, churches were established and the converts assumed the burden and responsibility to take this Gospel of the Kingdom to others. They developed a lifestyle of evangelism and took the message they received to those around them. They moved out first to their relatives and neighbours, and then to more distant places to those of different tribes and cultures from their own.
