What We Believe

What we believe…

Scripture: We believe that the Bible is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Bible is our infallible and divine authority in all matters of faith and life.

Trinity:  We believe in one God, who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who are to be equally loved, honored, and adored.

Sin: We believe that all people are sinners and are unable to save themselves or even cooperate with God in efforts to earn their salvation. 

Salvation:  We believe that God saves people by drawing them to Jesus by His Holy Spirit. He convinces them of their sin so that they repent and trust in Jesus Christ as He is offered in the Gospel.

Jesus:  We believe in the full divinity and the full humanity of Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God. He is the fullest and final revelation of God. He became man, lived, died and rose again to atone for the sins of those who trust Him alone for their salvation.

Spirit:  We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells us, giving us the daily strength and wisdom we need to walk according to His will and to grow in holiness.

Church: We believe the Holy Spirit brings His people together to form the visible church. Christ established this community to preach the Gospel, administer the sacraments, provide loving accountability, and embody the love of Christ to a broken world.

Christian life:  We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Return:  We believe that Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly to judge all humanity, give us resurrected bodies, and make all things new.

 

What we believe, liberty of conscience guide

While all aspects of the Christian faith are near to our hearts, not all issues are worth dividing over. If you are interested in how we keep the Good News of Jesus Christ central, check out our Liberty of Conscience guide.

The Christian Faith:  Trinity Church wholeheartedly embraces the historic Christian Faith as it is expressed in the ancient creeds of the world-wide church.

The Reformed Tradition:  Trinity Church is committed to the theological heritage of the Protestant Reformation. We are members of the Presbyterian Church in America, a group of churches whose unifying beliefs are summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith.
