Welcome To Trinity Church
Are you looking to be part of our Trinity Family?
First and foremost, we believe that Trinity is not our
church. It is Christ’s church, and Christ is the One who
welcomes ALL people to come, as we are, period.
At Trinity, we recognize that neither Jesus nor his
apostles ever spoke about “membership”. Jesus taught
that faith and discipleship is simply the intentional
pursuit of a spiritual relationship with God, in the
company of others who are on that journey. In
keeping with Jesus’ teaching, Trinity believes that all persons are free to receive ALL the benefits of belonging to a faith community; such as worship, Communion, Baptism, faith education, fellowship events, helping others, pastoral care and more.
The only question for anyone’s consideration is, “Is this the faith community with which I want to pursue my spiritual journey?” The scope of that question is the realm of discipleship – which for this church is what belonging is all about, a commitment in one’s heart that says, “This is my faith community. I am committed to her ministry and her fellowship. This is where I want to deepen my devotion and express my gifts in service.” In our congregation, all persons are encouraged to pursue their spiritual journey in four ways: attending worship, participating in at least one program per year to help one’s growth in understanding and practice of faith, participating in at least one opportunity for serving others per year, and giving financially in proportion to one’s income.
What does it mean to pursue a life of Discipleship?
Jesus said that his followers are called to love God with all their minds, hearts, and strength - and their neighbors as themselves. This was his summary of “all the law and the prophets”.
To love God with the mind is to pursue understanding of what we believe and why. Christians need to be well informed, thinking people - continuously seeking to reconcile the principles of our faith with the issues and realities of the world we live in.
To love God with the heart is about the realization that God seeks to be in relationship with humankind. Throughout the biblical stories, God keeps inviting humankind to choose life - with God. When we choose to receive the gift of God’s loving grace, a new life begins.
To love God with our strength is about all the ways we use our time and talents in Christian service. It is about being involved with the needs of hurting people. It is about every way we demonstrate God’s love, both within and outside the church.
Our community of faith is on a journey, seeking to learn and practice what it means to follow Jesus and make a difference in the world according to His teachings.
