Mexico-Texas Mission Center
WERE YOU ALWAYS CALLED THE COMMUNITY OF CHRIST?
No, at the World Conference 2000 it was voted to change the name of the church from the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to the Community of Christ. You can find out more by visiting the world church's web site at www.cofchrist.org
WHERE IS THE MEXICO-TEXAS MISSION CENTER LOCATED?
The Mexico-Texas Mission Center covers a large geographical area. The northern most congregation is located in San Antonio, Texas and the Southern most congregation is located in Jojutla, Mexico. As the name implies the Mission Center has congregations in Mexico and Texas.
DO YOU HAVE SPANISH SERVICES?
In Texas the Weslaco and San Antonio congregations have their services in Spanish and all the churches in Mexico are in Spanish.
I AM LOOKING FOR A CHURCH FOR MY FAMILY. IS THERE ANYTHING IN YOUR CHURCH FOR MY CHILDREN?
Our church has implemented a Transformation 2000 program that is centered about involving and integrating youth of all ages in worship services and church activities. The Rio Grande Valley congregations are deeply committed to providing growth for their youth. Also the church promotes summer church camps for its youth. Check out Camp Sionito at http://www.sionito.org . This is the church campgrounds for the surrounding areas.
WHAT BIBLE OR OTHER SCRIPTURES DO YOU USE?
As scripture we use the Bible, Book of Mormon, and Doctrine & Covenants. Many different translations of the bible are used and welcomed in worship study and activities. We do have an Inspired Version of the Bible put out by the church that was translated by Joseph Smith Jr.
ARE YOU MORMON?
We are often confused with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) whose headquarters are in Salt Lake City. We have a common early history with them (of 14 years), and we also use the Book of Mormon, but our fundamental beliefs and practices are very different from each other. We are definitely separate churches.
