How is SLS different from others?
We are a society where people share a common vision and have a communal life rather than a fellowship centered gathering. For successful medical mission, a broad spectrum of life should be taken into account such as business, society, culture, and education, with consistent development.
With the increasing number of countries that restrict mission activities, the need for professional missionary work is also growing as it can be the medium to bring the gospel to anti-Christian fields. In this regard, medical mission is imperative in the today’s era. Also, it is likely that medical students and medical personnel cannot receive proper care from the church due to their unique circumstances, such as academic overload and regular burn-out. Therefore, a medical mission society is beneficial for medical professionals to gain rest and strength with mutual understanding, and relevant faith training.
St. Luke Society prioritizes Bible study because the answers to many of our life struggles can be found in the Bible, and only the truth of the Holy Spirit can change us. Through systemic Bible study and faith training, members of SLS learn about the spirit of the cross and the love of God. Therefore, they can inherit the spirit of the early church and devote themselves to the Kingdom of God, living a communal life, and continue living a mission-oriented life even after they become medical personnel.
