SAMS International seeks to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ primarily within Latin America in a uniquely Anglican context.

The original Society was established in Great Britain as the South American Missionary Society in the mid 19th century. SAMS International is now a fellowship of the four SAMS branches, as well as branches of other mission agencies across the globe that have a focus on mission in partnership with the Anglican Church in Latin America.

The following are key excerpts from our covenant (as revised in 2001):

  • The main focus of SAMS International is Latin America which includes Portuguese-speaking areas such as Brazil.
  • Individual partners of SAMS International have the freedom to pursue ministry in different areas....
  • We covenant to work closely together in our common service…while recognizing each other’s independence.
  • We believe that doctrinal agreement is an essential foundation for partnership and therefore accept the common doctrinal basis underlying our present statements of faith.
