Bible Truth Church of God International (“BTCGI”) was formed in 2002 to propagate the gospel of Christ, nurture the members of the Body of Christ under its leadership, and to develop and implement auxiliary services for the church and wider communities. We are a dynamic, multi-cultural ministry dedicated to the transformation of lives both locally and internationally through preaching of the gospel of Christ and providing opportunities for spiritual enrichment, social growth, and educational development. Our goals for our members are that they come to know Christ personally and introduce Him to others, learn the contents of the Bible and convey this knowledge to others, learn the doctrines of the Christian faith, learn how to use Scripture to help one face daily life, and learn the skills of Christian communication. We welcome you to join us for worship and to grow in Christ with our community.

  • Bible Studies: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
