Serving Beyond Our Walls

Serving Beyond

 “But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

Acts 1:8

Trace Creek Baptist Church endeavors to be an Acts 1:8 congregation.  Realizing the mandate to evangelize the world, yet knowing the majority of ministry will happen in a local setting, the Acts 1:8 commitment is a structured means by which Trace Creek can purposefully, intentionally, and most effectively align itself with scripture, particularly with the use of the funds budgeted for mission ministry. 

 Each year, during the third week of July, we focus our efforts through a churchwide project to meet a specific need that rotates between a local, state, nation, or world location.
