What We Believe

Our Purpose Statement

Leading people who are far from God
to be continually formed in Christ-likeness

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”                              
—Matthew 28:18-20

Our Statement of Faith


“There is one Body and one Spirit…
there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…”

-Ephesians 4:4-6


“Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters…
Who are you to judge someone else’s servant?  To his own master, he stands or falls…
So then each of us will give an account of himself to God…
So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God.”

-Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22


“If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God,
and if I have the faith that can move mountains but have not love,
I amount to nothing at all.”

--1 Corinthians 13:2 

Our Essential Beliefs


God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God.

Genesis 1:1,26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14


Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords.

Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13


The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer at least one spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control.

2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13; 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12;3:16; Ephesians 1:13; Galatians 5:25; Ephesians 5:18


The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Timothy 1:13; Psalm 119:105,160;12:6; Proverbs 30:5


People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called “sin.” This attitude separates people from God and causes many problems in life.

Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 59:1-2


Salvation is God’s free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 14:6, 1:12; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26; Romans 5:1


Because God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ, the true believer is secure in that salvation for eternity. If you have been genuinely saved, you cannot “lose” it. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. It is the grace and keeping power of God that gives us this security.

John 10:29; 2 Timothy 1:12; Hebrews 7:25; 10:10, 14; 1 Peter 1:3-5


People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is to spend eternity in Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is to spend eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.

John 3:16; John 14:17; Romans 6:23; Romans 8:17-18; Revelation 20:15; 1 Corinthians 2:7-9

Our Values

Our core values express who we are and what we value.  They affect what we do and how we do it.  
They communicate what is fundamentally important to us.
We seek to operate by these values in all we do, both individually and corporately.


We believe and apply the Bible to everyday life.
Because of our foundational belief in the inspiration and authority of the Bible, we seek to live by its teachings and be guided by its truth both individually and corporately. In addition, we are committed to helping people understand and use the scriptures in their daily life at work, home, and play.


Prayer is a gift from God to us for getting in tune with His will and empowering us to carry out His will. And because we recognize that we can do nothing apart from Him, we seek to be a people who pray before and through all we do and give thanks and praise for all He does in return.


 Because each member of the body has something of importance to offer God and His church, they are needed by the body in fulfilling its functions and purpose.


Because God created people as individuals in His own image, every person is to be valued above all other created and man-made things. Because every person has physical, spiritual, and relational needs, Trinity directs its efforts and ministries to meet those needs.


From our deep love for Him, we worship and praise God with sincerity, joy, and freedom.
Sincerity in worship is important because our worship is for God, not for show. Joyfulness in worship is important because worship is a response of gratefulness for God’s favor. Freedom in worship is important because undue restraint deprives God of the expression He desires from us.


We give our best in all we do.
Because God expects and deserves the best of what we can offer, we seek to do all things with excellence. To do our best is evidence of gratitude and respect for God. We recognize that all of our power and ability comes from Him.
