Purpose

Because of TCWM there will be an increase of accredited, adequately-trained, and theologically-educated reformed pastors, and other church leaders, in the areas of Africa to which we are called. This will be done by: 1) conducting face to face, accredited, theological education in Other Degree Awarding Institution (ODAI) [2] institutions (Trinity Bible Institutes), 2) providing scholarships for selected individuals to other reformed theological seminaries for higher level education (Masters or Doctorates) for the sake of training theological teachers for Africa, 3) conducting non-accredited education, in as many locations as the Lord's opens doors to, as a complementary strategy to the accredited educational strategy. 4) building a network of TBI alumni and other like-minded ministry workers (to be known as Trinity Network) that will plant and revitalize churches through our programs of evangelism and reformed teaching and discipleship. As a secondary effort, TCWM will demonstrate ministry of deed as well as word through the coordinated use of vocational training, mercy missions, medical missions, radio ministry, publications, and translations.


Mission statement


Statement of faith

WE BELIEVE . . .

...the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative, inerrant Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21)

...there is one God, eternally existent in three persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 28:19, John 10:30)

...in the deity of Christ (John 10:33), His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23, Luke 1:35), His sinless life (Hebrews 4:15, Hebrews 7:26), His miracles (John 2:11), His vicarious and atoning death (1 Corinthians 15:3, Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 2:9), His resurrection (John 11:25, 1 Corinthians 15:4), His ascension to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19), His personal return in power and glory (Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11)

...in the absolute necessity of regeneration by the Holy Spirit for salvation because of the exceeding sinfulness of human nature; and that we are justified on the single ground of faith in the shed blood of Christ and that only by God's grace and through faith alone we are saved. (John 3:16-19, John 5:24, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:8-9, Ephesians 2:8-10, Titus 3:5)

...in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost-the saved to the resurrection of life, and the lost to the resurrection of condemnation. (John 5:28-29)

...in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28)

...in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. (Romans 8:13-14, 1 Corinthians 3:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, Ephesians 4:30, Ephesians 5:18)

...marriage has been created by God, from the time of the creation of human beings, and that it is ordained and defined by Him to be the lifelong union of one man and one woman (Genesis 1-3; Matthew 19:5-6).

We are a reformed and evangelical mission who believes in the great truths of the reformation. The doctrines of grace, the five Solas of the reformation, and the five points of Calvinism are an essential part of our theological foundation. We believe that these great Biblical truths propel us into Christ's mission in the world! "And I have other sheep that are not of this fold, and they will listen to my voice." (John 10:16)
