At the heart of PCC is the need to share the love of Christ to the lost. Since 2005, we have been blessed to send short term missionaries to the Philippines to serve through Medical Missions or our bi-annual college AFG missions trip. Through the missions trips, we have established seven outreach churches throughout the Philippines all by the grace of God .
Medical Missions – God’s Love Connection
Jeremiah 17:7 ~ “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.”
While our mission is to serve the community by providing free medical and dental needs, our ultimate and primary goal is to share God’s love to the people. As Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” (Luke 5:31-32). We work alongside local doctors, nurses, and dentists to provide medical attention that most residents could not afford on their own. We teach that while the medicine & medical treatment they receive won’t last forever, what Jesus offers is eternal.
AFG Missions – Empowered to Testify
Acts 1:8 ~ “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Every 2 years the college ministry prepares a group of students to participate in short term missions to the Philippines. Their training begins at least 6 months prior to the departure date and includes door knocking, workshops, weekly meetings, and training to share the gospel message in both English and in the local Filipino language. Once in the Philippines, the missionaries will travel on foot going door-to-door sharing the love of Christ to the community and to distribute food. While the food they receive may only be enough to sustain the family for at least one week, Jesus teaches that, “[He is] the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35)
