The church is not a building, first of all, but people! Ordinary people, your friends and neighbors make up the church. What makes these people special is fellowship — fellowship with the Lord and with each other.
On Sunday you’ll find these people worshiping together in Trinity Presbyterian Church. You will find them enjoying one another’s fellowship, and, on occasion, a potluck meal. Throughout the week you’ll find them seeking to serve God in their daily lives.
A whole life church: Trinity Presbyterian Church believes that the whole person is important. The whole person was created by God in his image. But we have all sinned against God, and need to be rescued and ruled by Jesus Christ. You will find this church committed to working out the principles of Christ’s deliverance in every area of life.
A whole family church: The whole family, individuals, believers and their children, are important to Christ and to the whole church.
A whole world church: The good news of Jesus Christ is having a great impact on the world. Trinity Presbyterian Church is committed to advancing his kingdom by its involvement in home and foreign missions.
The whole Word of God: The Apostle Paul told the elders of the church in Ephesus: “. . . I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you in public and from house to house, testifying both to Jews and to Greeks of repentance toward God and of faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. . . . I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole counsel of God.” Acts 20:20,27 (ESV) Trinity Presbyterian Church seeks to proclaim that whole Word of God.
“Trinity” in our name reflects our belief that we were created by the triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We have been redeemed by the triune God, and we exist to glorify and enjoy him forever. “Presbyterian” refers to the rule by elders, or presbyters, the pattern we see at work in the church as it grew in the time of the Apostles. Jesus is the Lord and King of the church. Elders, chosen by the members, administer the work of the church and exercise authority in his name. The “church” is the people God has gathered to worship and serve him. Trinity Presbyterian Church is a congregation in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
