At the very core of our church is the highest, overarching value:

The Gospel.
The Gospel is, in a word, Jesus. He is the Good News. He is our Savior from sin; the Way, the Truth and the Life. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” 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.” Through faith in Jesus we also receive the Holy Spirit, who renews and sanctifies our life for God. The Gospel is the motive and goal for all we seek to be and do.

Worship is the adoration and magnification of God for who He is and what He does. This is the chief aim and purpose of humanity and of all creation. Worship also includes a grateful submission to God, a willing humbleness before our Creator and Redeemer. Worship is, then a combination of shouting and silence; of singing and meditation; of doing and listening. It can and should take many forms and be a characteristic way of life for God’s people.

Preaching and Teaching
The Bible is God’s inspired Word, the authoritative and trustworthy rule of faith and practice. The Bible is relevant to the common needs of all people at all times and to the specific problems of contemporary living. Therefore, we are committed to preaching and teaching the Word of God with Christ at the core to every generation, that we might equip individuals to better understand Jesus’ teachings for joyful obedience and growth in Christ-likeness.

We envision Trinity to be a “House of Prayer”: a setting where a variety of prayer opportunities exist to encourage transformed lives. We believe that God desires His people to pray and that He hears and answers prayer. Therefore, the ministries and activities of Trinity will be characterized by reliance on prayer in their conception, planning and execution. (1 Thes. 5:16-18; Mt. 6:5-14)

Jesus was missional. Being the very nature of God, He became man and lived among men on a mission from His Father. In the same way, Jesus has sent us on a mission both here and abroad, the Great Commission. We strive to embody the mission of Jesus in the world by living out the gospel freely and faithfully, intentionally living the gospel through our lives within the culture while preserving its divine nature and power.

As believers, we are to devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Our hope is that the church consists of more than a building, preaching and singing, but in sharing life together in recognition of our inability to do life alone. In doing this, we hope to create unity in diversity in all of life’s messiness and glory.
