At SSMC, we subscribe to the notion that the church is not a physical building but a living body of believers (Corpus Christi), under the Lordship of Christ. Whilst some of our church life and activities are anchored within a specific geography in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara, we share the calling of John Wesley in seeing the world as our parish. Some call this a "Church without Walls".
Indeed, this very idea is implicit in our corporate Vision - to transform lives and expand His Kingdom. It compels us to look beyond our walls at the needs of our community - our immediate and extended neigbours. It calls for a shift in our focus and mindset - from waiting for people to come in, to actively sending (God's co-)labourers out; from an inward congregration focus to a passion for transforming society; from seeking God's blessings to blessing others; from a fixation on man-made monuments to building lives; and from being church-centric to becoming Christ-centric.
Only then, will we truly become salt of the earth and light of the world in our homes, schools, communities and marketplace.
