The Trails Church exists to glorify God by making disciples through the gospel, in community, and on mission. While intentionally planting a church centered on the gospel, our aim is to build a church rooted in Scripture and passionate about reaching people and seeing them flourish as disciples of Jesus.
This is the beginning and end of our mission: to glorify God. Perhaps this part of the mission is best summed up in the great commandment: Loving God with all our heart, soul, and strength. This is how the Bible defines worship: to love and glorify God in all things. We believe that the entirety of the Christian life and the heartbeat of the local church is the glory of God.
How do we primarily achieve glorifying God as a church? Through making disciples.
Our mission begins with the great commandment, passionate about fulfilling the Great Commission: to make disciples, baptizing and teaching everything Jesus has commanded. (Matt 28:19) Disciple-making is both proclaiming the gospel to those who are not followers of Christ, and proclaiming the gospel to Christians as the means by which we grow in godliness.
Gospel, Community, Mission:
These three words help clarify the mission of The Trails. The gospel is what unifies us, community is what fortifies us, and mission is what drives us.
The Trails is affiliated with strategic partner organizations for the sake of cooperating in gospel work both locally and globally.
By partnering with the Southern Baptist Convention, we join over 45,000 other churches to impact the world with the good news of Jesus Christ. As an affiliate with the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention, we support SBC organizations such as the International Mission Board as they partner with churches to send missionaries and mission teams into the nations and the North American Mission Board and the SendNetwork which partner to plant over 1,000 churches each year in North America as well as support SendRelief and disaster relief ministries. We also partner with The Pillar Network which is committed to equipping, planting, and revitalizing churches.
