中文 (Mandarin)

中文堂2017年的異象:「堅固橛子,放長繩子」(以賽亞書54:2)

  • 堅固橛子:栽培同工們作主的門徒、藉著讀書會幫助慕道友或初信者靈命成長。
  • 放長繩子:藉著社區講座和拜訪社區朋友等外展行動,讓社區知道Trinity Church (Rowland Heights Campus)有中文堂。
  • 擴張帳幕之地,張大居所的幔子:隨時預備迎接因著聖靈的動工所帶來的教會增長。

“Strengthen the stakes & Lengthen the cords” (Isaiah 54:2)–the vision of Chinese Congregation in 2017:

  • Strengthen the stakes: building up the co-worker team to be the disciples of the Lord; helping the seekers or new believers to grow spirtually with the study group.
  • Lengthen the cords: striving to let the community know there is a Chinese speaking congregation in Trinity Church–RH through the outreach events, such as the quartly community seminars and distributing Chinese evanglism booklets in the community.
  • Enlarge the place of the tents and stretch the tent curtains wide: always get ready for the growth of the ministries by the moving of the Holy Spirit.
