Mission statement

Tri-City Union Gospel Mission is a Christ-centered organization desiring to see homeless, hopeless and hurting people in our community become transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We serve all who God brings our way and do so with love, compassion and urgency as we see them experience lasting change through our Rescue, Recovery and Restoration programs.

Statement of faith

At Tri City Union Gospel Mission we believe...

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God. The Bible alone is the only source for all doctrine and practice.

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the deity of Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful men regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

We believe in personal salvation from the eternal penalty of sin, provided exclusively by the grace of God on the basis of the atoning death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, to be received only through individual faith in His Person and redemptive work on the cross, and to be followed with a life characterized by the empowering grace of the Holy Spirit, giving evidence in loving service and adherence to the principles and practices of the Christian Faith as set forth in the New Testament.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life.

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
