TCC strives to be a church where Jesus would be treasured in the hearts of the people of TCC feeding on God’s word and consistently in the desperate anticipation of prayer. That the church would genuinely live in community as family on mission. That this family of TCC would live free from jealousy and selfish ambition, talk more about evidences of God’s grace than failures, grow by the power of the Spirit in the fruit he promises to work in us, and be known as a gracious, forgiving community. This family would equip one another to be followers who understand and live humbly in their gifts for the good of others. A people who would stand together as a community of strong harmony in the midst of striking ethnic and economic diversity. A church community that lives distinct from the world for the world. A church that loves this city and would be the mercy-filled conduit of God’s love to the poor- the abandoned, lonely, and afflicted.
