Welcome Message:

God blesses us richly by calling us together to worship Him, to be strengthened in His Word, and to be encouraged by His people. We would be delighted to have you worship with us, and if you live in the area, to have you join us in the many ministry opportunities our Lord has provided in our community. A wide variety of spiritual gifts are needed to do that work, and together as the one body of Christ, great things will be accomplished in the building of His kingdom.

We treasure all whom our Lord sends to minister with us. Please join us for worship of our Risen Lord.

 Our Theology In Summary

God’s Word tells us, "This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus." Rom 3:22-24

We are also told; "Don't you know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life." Rom 6:3-4

The new life that we have, has been given to us by a gracious and merciful God, through the perfect sacrifice of Jesus, His Son, on the cross. This is the greatest treasure we have and is the central truth around which, and the foundation upon which, we build our faith life.

 

 My Vision For Christ’s Church

My vision for the church can be summed up in Jesus’ words "In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven." Matt 5:16

My vision is to see the light of Christ shining through each of our members so that when those outside the church come into contact with members of Trinity, they would not just hear about Jesus, but experience Him.
