Pray for the Jeremiadoss Family

We have been blessed this week to have Selvin and Laurel Jeremiadoss and their family join us at TCBC. Selvin and Laurel are our strategic partners serving with the IMB in Uganda. Partners like them are one way that we are able to take part in pursuing faithfulness to the Great Commission and seeing the Lord’s kingdom advance around the world. Read the following Q&A with Selvin to learn more about their ministry and how we can partner with them…

Called Out Of Death

Ephesians 2:1–3 [1] And you were dead in the trespasses and sins [2] in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—[3] among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind.  Consider…

Pray for our Partners

As a church, TCBC seeks to “go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation” (Mark 16:15).  In this pursuit, we are connected with and support global partners such as the Booths in Portugal, the Jeremiadosses and Nobles in Uganda, the Schultzes in the Middle East, and the Watsons in South Asia, in addition to organizations such as the International Mission Board.  We also work to plant churches nationally with the North American Mission Board and…

Thankful for Biblical Counseling

What do you think of when you hear the word “counseling”? What do you picture when you think about what counseling is? Maybe you have met with a counselor before, and your thoughts go to that experience. Maybe you have never met with a counselor before, and your mind imagines a counseling session looking like someone laying on a couch talking about their problems to someone else. When thinking about counseling, do you ever picture two people sitting together, with…

Thankful For The Ministry of God’s Word

I don’t know about you, but I am excited that our church is studying through the letter of Ephesians in 2024! For me personally, the Lord has used Ephesians throughout my life to grow my understanding of Him, myself, the church, and the world around me. The Lord has used Ephesians to grow my love for Him and His bride, the Church.  The letter of Ephesians has grown both my love for our church and the burden I have for…

GO, No Cape Wearing Super-Christians Are Coming

Years ago I found myself teaching a course at a seminary in Southeast Asia. While there I planned to connect with a few IMB missionaries. I was early for our meeting so I waited at a table in the corner. I remember almost being nervous as I waited. These were the real deal, IMB missionaries in a life-threatening environment. They had to sacrifice many basic comforts and faced persecution, yet bravely shared Jesus to whole communities who had never before heard His name. I expected…

Study Ephesians

There are precious treasures ahead for TCBC in 2024! This Sunday we begin our 7-month, verse-by-verse study of Ephesians. This New Testament epistle is rich in doctrine and prescriptive instruction for Christian living. Notice two overarching themes. First, in Christ, we are called according to His purpose. Second, in Christ, we walk according to His calling. We have been set apart in Christ by the grace of God for his glory, therefore let us live accordingly. In order to help…

By Faith: Time Would Fail

As we’ve been studying and preaching through Hebrews this year, we’ve seen the resounding beat of the same drum over and over: Jesus is better!We’ve looked at answers to the question– “Better than what?” He is better than the revelation of the angels and the prophets (1:1-2). He is better than the rest that Joshua could not give (4:8-10). He is better than the high priests who had to offer continual sacrifices, including for their own sins (5:3, 9-10). He…

Meet Cameron Tucker

My name is Cameron Tucker. My family and I have been attending TCBC since 2009. When my family first began to get involved at Tri-Cities, I got put into the blue group at Awana – led by David Brewer. I was shell-shocked. I never wanted to be in a big room full of kids my age, all running around and acting up (because what kind of kid thinks that sort of thing is fun anyway?) It wasn’t until I started…
