Our Mission & Vision as a congregation
The mission of Trinity Lutheran Church is to nurture faith through proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ by word, sacrament, deeds and loving relationships, to ALL people.
As proclaimers of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the vision of Trinity Lutheran Church is to maximize our gifts and resources to reach out with God's love and serve the global community.
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)
Lutherans are a diverse group of people, convinced that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God. Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are connected to the faith of the church through the ages and around the world.
Lutherans believe in the Triune God. We are part of God's unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time. When we study the Bible and pray, we are drawn more deeply into God's own saving story. When we serve others and address social issues that affect the common good, we live out our Christian faith.
Since our beginning in 1988, this denomination has been one church body organized in three expressions that enable and support us all to grow in faith and put faith into action.
