Jesus Saves Mission (JSM) is a faith missionary organisation committed to evangelising, discipling, and church-planting amongst the poor. It is fundamental in doctrine, separatist in stand, inter-denominational in cooperation, and international in operation. Following the Lord, JSM targets and ministers to the total man in all his need both physical, educational, social and spiritual. JSM draws inspiration, imprint of its ministry from the Lord’s Galilean ministry (Mt. 9:35-38).
We have projected to reach the poor masses of millions around the world through setting up regional ISOMs (International School of Missions). Our prayer is that all JSM stations around the world will grow and mature into self-supporting, self-governing and self-propagating separatist fundamental local churches.
In 17 Jan 1972, the Bob Jones Memorial School of Missions (SOM) was founded to train, equip and prepare young soldiers of Christ for the slum ministry. It started with 13 students, and the number grew quickly to 28 students in 1973. 1974 saw the first batch of SOM graduates: Faith Teoh, Eunice Leong and Ruth Chew.
