Truth Behind Tradition
A new Christian invited her mother to one of our Bible studies where we were discussing the differences between religious tradition and biblical Christianity. Because Mexican culture is steeped in Roman Catholic traditions, some feared the mother would be offended and never return. But she kept coming back and asking questions because she wanted to know the truth behind her traditions.
We are seeing similar stories played out across northeastern Mexico, with people hungry to learn the biblical basis for belief in Christ. We’re working alongside the National Presbyterian Church in Mexico and the Center for Church Planting (CPI), located in Monterrey. CPI has an ambitious vision to plant two Reformed churches in each of the largest 27 cities in northern Mexico by 2020. We’re at work in a number of cities across the northeastern Mexico border to help with this church-planting effort. To that end we’re reaching out to the community through Bible studies, ESL classes, VBS, and a business ministry. We also partner with Isaiah 55 Deaf Ministries in Reynosa.
