Mission and Goals
“I tell you, NOW is the time of God's favor, NOW is the day of salvation.”
~ 2 Corinthians 6:2b NIV ~
As we begin this New Year, we must take to heart that NOW is the right time for us as Christians to continue GOing beyond the four walls of the Church, living out and sharing God’s love and mercy by means of Nurturing, Outreach and Witnessing to all.
The purpose of NOW is to continue on the path of the United Methodist Church to “make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.” NOW is the time, where this becomes the mission of the La Trinidad to provide the tools necessary to evangelize to all and to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to our surrounding community and abroad. NOW is the time to see Jesus abound in La Trinidad!
Nurturing. The mission of La Trinidad is to nurture all in the Word of God, equipping everyone with the full knowledge of the Living Word; the Bible and building a nurturing relationship with God and trust in His Word alone. Our Goal is to see disciples making disciples and adding souls to God’s Kingdom.
Outreach. The mission of La Trinidad is to reach out beyond the four walls of the Church, taking with us the Biblical teachings of Jesus to the marginalized, the oppressed, the poor of spirit and those who hunger for justice. Jesus in the Gospel of Matthew 28:19 says; “Therefore GO and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” Our Goal is to see the very lives transformed and become lives that mirror the likeness of Jesus Christ.
Witness. The mission of La Trinidad is to be a visible Witness of God’s power and loving grace to the lives that we encounter, living out our calling as God’s children and proclaiming the coming of our Lord. Colossians 4:5 says that as Christians we should “Walk in wisdom towards them that are without, redeeming the time.” Our goal is to see our witness become an image of Jesus Christ in us.
“You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.”
~ 2 Timothy 2:2 ~
