BCCM - Christian Basel Church in Malaysia


The Basel Christian Church in Malaysia (BCCM) was founded as early as the 19th century by immigrants from southern China. It works primarily in remote areas of Sabah for marginalized population groups who lack state support. Mission 21 supports programs of the Malaysian-language synod in the areas of education, livelihood security and overcoming domestic violence. These include schooling for immigrant children from Indonesia and the Philippines who are denied access to government schools because they do not have valid documents. Furthermore, BCCM, with the support of Mission 21, is committed to the following areas: Women's and income generation, domestic violence awareness and counseling, and scholarship awards for school children and students from poor backgrounds. Girls in particular are supported in the awarding of scholarships, as they are threatened with marriage as minors. In addition to members of various indigenous groups, many migrant workers from Indonesia are also members of the Malaysian-language synod of the BCCM. The Malaysian-language synod has about 24,000 members, served by 57 pastors in 116 congregations.
