Everyone has questions when they try something new. Here are some questions that we are commonly asked, we hope that they will answer some of your queries. If we have missed anything, just get in touch and we will do our best to answer.

Are you a church or a ministry?

Joy of Salvation International Evangelical Ministries (JOSIEM) is non- denominational gathering of Christians. We are not a church, we are a ministry. We aim to hold fellowship in halls and organize crusades around the world targeting those that do not know the person of Jesus Christ. Learn more about our ministry here.

How do I get involved?
There are all sorts of ways to get involved at JOSIEM. Find out more here.
I don’t know if I’m a Christian – does that matter?
No – all are welcome, whatever stage you are at in your spiritual journey.
How is JOSIEM funded?

JOSIEM has a number of sources of income, although like almost all ministries, the majority of our income comes from those who donate to us freely.

Who can come to your events?

Anyone and everyone is more than welcome. JOSIEM has a mixed congregation who come together from a variety of backgrounds and traditions.

What if I’m not like everyone else?

For one reason or another, sometimes people feel like they don’t fit in. In God’s eyes, there are only two kinds of people — people who need His grace and forgiveness, and people who have already received His grace and forgiveness. In either case, we are needy people and we have no room to judge each other. We all have our own weaknesses. Once you get to know people better, you may find that you are not as different as you think. We’re not perfect people, we’re just people.
