Serving Leaders

You Will Be My Witnesses (Martus) . . . to the Ends of the Earth. Acts 1:8

Martus = Credible Witness
In Acts 1:8, the Greek word “martus” is translated as “witness.” “Martus” is also the English root word for “martyr”. Living in restricted nations, our international leaders are “living martyrs” because their faithful and bold witness for Christ puts both their lives and their freedoms at risk. Likewise, our international family inspires us as fellow believers to lay down our lives in full surrender and obedience to God . . . with the same Spirit of Martyrdom.

Three Foundational Biblical
Principles of SOM International

Faith – Holding on at great cost and persevering with calculated risk. This value is seen in Scripture as faithfulness, courage and integrity.
(1 Corinthians 16:13)

Hope – Our anchor for the soul, firm and secure. Hope emboldens perseverance in the saints for healing and relief in suffering. Hope incorporates vision for the lost, unrighteous, violent and persecutors. (Hebrews 6:19-20)

Love – The greater the sacrifice, the greater the love expressed. Martyrs are all witnesses of Christ and certainly include those who are faithful even unto death. We seek to honor, encourage, and serve the living martyrs of Christ today – those who witness at great sacrifice and risk. (1 Corinthians 13)
