Over the Years we have…
What Drives Us
We are dedicated to worshipping God, ministering to families with children, and building strong Christian relationships in our families, friendships, and communities.
What We Believe & Why
Who is Jesus?
As our Church’s name proclaims, we believe in the Triune God. Based on Holy Scripture, we teach that the one true God (Deut. 6:4) is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Three distinct persons, but of one God. Our Creeds (namely the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds), which we recite in worship, explain our understanding of the Triune God.
We believe that the Bible, or the Holy Scriptures, was written by holy men of God by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21). God has given the Church His Word so that she may have a foundation of faith. This Word is living and breathing, working faith within those who hear and read it. Through this Word, we learn who God is and encounter Him in powerful ways.
Statements of Faith
At Trinity we profess that we are founded on the principles of the Augsburg Confession, 1530. Almost 500 years ago, a group of reformers published these articles of faith, which we hold to today. They confess the very faith we as believers confess each week in the words of the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian Creed. We believe these creeds to be a clear summary of the teachings we find in the Holy Bible, which is how God has chosen to reveal Himself most clearly to us so that we may have an eternal relationship with Him.
