Inquire About The Trip

What the Mission Trip Will Be Like

Many of the people of Peru have never seen what a strong family looks like. They grew up in broken homes full of poverty, dysfunctional relationships, and abuse. Because they have never seen examples of loving families relating to each other the way God desires, they become locked in a cycle of broken family life and can’t break free.

Christ For the City- Peru staff have seen a special need in their country for strengthening broken families, giving good models of parenting and marriage, and providing education for churches about how to reach out to children-at-risk and offer them tangible resources like food and legal assistance.

Our staff puts together many seminars and conferences with the intention of changing Peruvian Christians’ ideas of family, parenting, and marriage. If you have skills in organization, education, or training, come assist our staff in preparing for and speaking at their events and in local churches. You will find working with the children and families you will encounter a moving and rewarding experience.

Other Information

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.
