A mission opportunity combining camping ministry and local outreach with Christ for the City missionaries in Mexico!Inquire About The Trip
What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
A few hours outside of Vera Cruz, Mexico near a city called Tuxpan lies Camp Kikomar. Located on the beach, the camp is staffed by missionaries Diana Garrett and Mirna Sotoyamar. The two ladies took over the camp’s operations a few years ago and have been slowly and steadily reconstructing the old cabins and facilities, many of which had fallen into disrepair. They look forward to the day that the camp will reach its potential as a ministry site. They plan to hold kids and youth camps, seminars, and conferences, and to also host mission teams from North America who can put together outreach events for the surrounding communities.
Come help Diana and Mirna make their camping ministry even better. You can assist them in putting together day camps and week-long camps for kids and teenagers. You will be instrumental in helping make their vision a reality. Spending some time with Christ For the City in Mexico is a great ministry and leadership development experience that you will carry with you throughout your future ministry or career.

- CHRIST FOR THE CITY- STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe in one God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised bodily and exalted to God’s right hand where He makes intercession of His own. He will personally come again.
We believe that God created humankind, male and female, in His own image. However, all creation suffers the consequences of the fall and is under God’s judgment.
We believe that God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between one man and one woman. Therefore we will only recognize marriages between one biological man and one biological woman, and sex (gender) is defined by their sexual identity at birth. Gen. 2:18-25
We believe that because of His love, God sent His Son Jesus Christ, who inaugurated His Kingdom, provided atonement for sin, disarmed the powers and authorities, triumphing over them by the cross, reconciling the world to Himself. He will consummate His Kingdom in righteousness, power, and glory.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who glorifies Jesus Christ, working in all peoples to bring them to believe and obey Christ. The Spirit dwells in those who believe, equipping and empowering them for lives of holiness and fruitful service.
We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
We believe that all who repent and believe in Christ are born into life eternal, delivered from condemnation, and as His Church, are called to communicate the gospel, proclaim the Kingdom, make disciples of all nations and seek to be instruments of His righteousness, justice, and healing.
We believe in the resurrection of the body, the eternal blessedness of believers in the presence of Christ and the eternal separation of unbelievers from Him.
