Local Outreach Ministry: Since the church is the only agency that ministers to mankind's spiritual needs, our first priority is leading lost souls to Christ.  The local outreach ministry seeks to share the message of Christ with the people of our local community through person-to-person evangelism, home Bible studies, the distribution of gospel tracts, and other appropriate means. It is also responsible for the advertising and publicity of major congregational events designed to reach the people of our community.   Back to Ministries Page

Missions Ministry: With an eye towards the growth of the church worldwide, Houston Park actively seeks for opportunities to support global missions.  The missions ministry provides encouragement and support to those missionary families whose work is funded by the Houston Park church, both in  the United States, and in foreign countries. The ministry is also responsible for screening the various missions requests and appeals that come to Houston Park to determine if they should be assisted by special contributions.  Back to Ministries Page

Missions currently supported by Houston Park:


Active Christian's Ministry: "Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people"  (Proverbs 13:34).  Jesus said that his disciples are not of the world, but they have been sent into the world.  They are the salt of the earth and the light of the world  (John 17:16, 18;  Matthew 5:13-16; Philippians 2:16).  Christians have a responsibility to stand for truth, right, and justice in the world.  We are not afforded the luxury of hiding our heads in the sand, but we are faced with the challenge of exerting a positive influence upon society.  The Active Christian Ministry provides an opportunity for Christians to speak out and encourage various state and national legislative bodies and other organizations to maintain our nation as one with strong Christian values.  By means of this ministry, information regarding timely and crucial issues is provided, along with phone numbers, mailing addresses, and e-mail addresses of the pertinent policy- and law-makers, so that to which individuals may voice their concerns and convey their views.  Back to Ministries Page
