scriptures

At Trinity, we seek to place ourselves under the authority of God's Holy Word. We are to help one another understand Scripture and apply it to our lives. We commit ourselves to teaching you the whole of Scripture and upholding its unique, authoritative place in the life of the church and individual.

Community

At Trinity, we seek to be a community that extends beyond Sunday morning. We are broken people, living in a fragmented culture, who need guidance, encouragement, and help in all areas of life. As such, we extend you hospitality, love, acceptance, and welcome into our church and into our lives. We seek to be a community that is immersed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, pursues the honor and glory of God, and sacrifices for the good of one another.

service

At Trinity, we desire to love and serve God, our neighbors, city, and world. We are all equipped by the Holy Spirit with gifts to glorify God and work for the betterment of our world. We seek to go beyond our abilities and imaginations and prioritize others before ourselves. 

worship

At Trinity, we seek to worship God in ways that magnify God's glory and increase our affections for Jesus Christ. We praise God for who God is, thank God for what God has done, and prepare ourselves to live as disciples of Jesus Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit. We share a way of life that see everything we do as an opportunity to worship and praise God. 

Discipleship

At Trinity, we seek to make, grow, and send disciples of Jesus Christ. Christ calls us to pursue this work, and we believe that everything we do ought to increase our obedience and love for Jesus. We seek to fulfill this mission and will give ourselves to help one another to become mature disciples, equipped to do God's work and to be an influence for God wherever we go. 

Generosity

At Trinity, we strive to live and serve in ways that acknowledge God's gifting of all things. We are called to use the diversity of our gifts to prosper and enrich God's kingdom. We seek to be responsible and humble stewards, believing that is more blessed to give than to receive. 

compassion

At Trinity, we seek to be a place where everyone is known, understood, valued, and loved. We live in a broken world that diminishes and neglects human dignity and leaves people isolated and vulnerable. We seek to share, through word and deed, the compassion and love of Jesus Christ with one another and carry that compassion into our world.
