Missions: Local/International

At Trinity Community Church we believe that Jesus Christ is the hope of the world – and everyone needs to know that. For that reason we train, send and support missionaries and short-term missions teams to parts of our city and to countries on five continents.

As part of our core beliefs, we:

  • believe the Holy Spirit empowers us to be Jesus’ witnesses locally, regionally, nationally and internationally (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18-20)
  • look forward to seeing the kingdom of God encompass every tribe, every tongue, and every nation. (Revelation 5:1-10)
  • will send (Romans 10:13-15)
  • will go (Isaiah 6:8)
  • will do the work of an evangelist (2 Timothy 4:2-5)
