Christian Mission of South India

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

– Matthew 6:25-27

Ministries: Tribal Ministry


CMSI trains tribal men in the gospel to minister to their own and surrounding villages. There are a lot of educational needs, medical needs, and every other kind of need that is associated with poverty and people unfamiliar with the love of Jesus Christ. CMSI tries to meet as many of these needs as possible to allow the love of God to reach into the hearts of people through the efforts of the CMSI ministers (preachers).

In 2005 three villages that CMSI had been working with were affected by the tsunami disaster. The Lord through CMSI helped with food distribution, fishing nets, boats, and rebuilding a wall and a widow's roof damaged in the storm.
