Background, Mandate and Core Business of the Holy Trinity Church

ACK Holy Trinity Church Kitengela > About us > Background, Mandate and Core Business of the Holy Trinity Church


The name of the church is derived from the date a small group of Christians congregated together on 30th May 2004 to worship together as a church. This was then a Holy Trinity Sunday giving credence the naming of the church as Holy Trinity Church – Kitengela. The church history is a humble one; from a shanty building of polythene which later developed to an iron sheet (mabati) building at Mr Walace Kuria’s Home, the 16 congregants laid a foundation that all are proud to see today. A church with about 600 members and a big sanctuary that accommodates about 400 worshippers and an academy block with a school of about 80 pupils and that also hosts the youth and teens church.


The primary mission of the Church is preaching the gospel because it is the God’s agency to evangelize the world. Mathew 28:19-20; The bible says Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, the son and the holy spirit and teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you, and surely I am with you always to the very end of age. It is the mission of the Church to provide the kind of place where spiritual life can flourish. Thus, the mandate of ACK HTC Church is to preach the gospel; provide Christian teachings to the congregation; provide a spiritual atmosphere; reproduce the character of Christ; and bring joy to mankind. As clearly stated in the church mission statement, HTC provides a place and an opportunity to worship and take care of one another in love as commanded by our Father in heaven in John 15:12. We do this as family of Christians embolden by the word of God. HTC mandate carries a long with it the spiritual journey of all Christians through transformative agenda where the church maintains a development /social activities to address the human development in addressing what affects the congregation in education, health and social economic spheres.


The core business of the church is to spread the Gospel of Christ through preaching, teaching, prayer, worship, pastoral care and evangelism. In order to effectively carry out this mandate, the church has a social responsibility to the key stakeholders in addressing issues that affect them in health, quality of life, food security, justice and peace, environmental conservation and morality.
