Our Beliefs 

Get to know more about what makes us different.

Trinity is nondenominational which means that we are a “self-standing” independent congregation that is not affiliated with a larger denomination or group. Our church is also evangelical (meaning we believe in the basically literal nature of the Bible and have a desire to share God’s truth with others), reformed/covenantal (meaning we see God’s sovereignty in salvation and we look at God’s story as more of a complete unit rather than something that is divided into different dispensations) and postmillennial in our eschatology (meaning that despite suffering, hardship and times of persecution in this present age, God’s kingdom has generally advanced in the world until now and will continue to do so until Christ visibly and bodily returns alongside the resurrection at the Last Day). We see these and many other Biblical truths as a small part of God’s encouraging message for those of us who experience his grace every day!
At Trinity, it is our goal to teach people about the Gospel narrative and the implications of it's truths on our everyday lives. So as we communicate our core beliefs a good place to start is the Nicene Creed (325/381 AD) which was the orthodox confession of the early church describing the nature of God and what we believe about him as Christians. This creed is engraved on a giant granite boulder in the front of the church.

Our Mission

Jesus said, “I came that you would have life and have it to the full.” At Trinity, we believe that God has a special plan for you. As one of God’s people, your great Heavenly Father loves you so much that he wants to bring you into a greater awareness of his presence and his working in your life and in the lives of those around you. This good news or “gospel” is what is at the heart of our mission statement: We exist to experience, demonstrate and share God’s great Gospel.

Whatever your personality, social status or station in life, the life lived with such an awareness of your purpose is always better. And because life is so often filled with difficulty and brokenness, an ongoing relationship with Jesus can help you find healing and guidance so that your life and the lives of your friends will be filled with this ever increasing joy in God.

God has qualitative life in store for you at Trinity Fellowship Church where we seek to experience, demonstrate and share God’s great Gospel together. Join us for just such a life experience this Sunday at 10:30 am!

Our Values

A person’s character can often be seen in the things that he or she values. What do you value? And more importantly, how do you determine what you should value? At Trinity, we believe that the Bible is God’s covenant to us. Therefore, the sixty-six books contained inside God’s “Word” offer us an ancient, morally pure, and yet culturally relevant understanding of the things that are essential in attaining the joy-filled life that God desires in us.

Using the Bible as our guide, our church has compiled a list of seventeen core values that further unpack our mission statement and better articulate the kind of character God wants us to demonstrate as we go about our mission.

Our seventeen core values are: Truth, relevance, inspiration, narrative (or Gospel story), involvement, teaching, giving, family, enjoyment, love, leadership, outreach, worship, shalom, help, growth and transformation.
