Swift Creek desires to be a church that is constantly Going Out with the Gospel. Acts 1:8. Says “…you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” We, therefore, strive to be on mission in our local community, throughout our region and in lost places around the world. All Swift Creek members are encouraged to live on mission by praying, giving, and by going.
We support and encourage participation with local partner ministries including SBCV Disaster Relief, Chesterfield Food Bank, Mercy Mall and others. We minister regionally with our Christmas Backpacks and support for church plants.
Our main international focus is planting a church in an unreached area outside of Lima, Peru. We have partnered with a Peruvian church, Cristo El Salvidor to plant a new church in an area known as Jicamarca. Jicamarca has no evangelical church in their community.
Swift Creek sends teams three to four times a year as we strive to make Christ known, disciple new believers in the community, and start this new church so that the gospel can be proclaimed in this previously unreached place. We want these new believers in Jicamarca to have a church where they can Gather, Grow, Give and Go!
In furthering this partnership in Peru, one of our own families have moved to Peru to assist in this work. Swift Creek is grateful for Jonathan and Holly Smith and their family as they faithfully serve and minister in this church planting effort.
