What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
Christ For the City staff in El Salvador have recognized a need among the low income people of their country for adequate and affordable healthcare. While some Salvadorans have insurance and access to good healthcare, those on the fringes of society are often left without healthcare because they cannot pay and have no insurance available to them.
A few years ago, Christ For the City began working to meet the needs of those without healthcare through a new medical clinic in a needy area of San Salvador. The clinic focuses on giving affordable, Christian-based healthcare to families in need. The clinic is always in need of medical professionals to come work alongside our clinic’s doctor in offering love and care to patients. If you are a nurse, doctor, pharmacist, or other healthcare professional, a month or two of your life can help expand the ministry capacity of the clinic and reach more Salvadorans in need.

- 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.
