We are followers of Jesus Christ.
Trinity United Methodist Church’s purpose is to make Disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.
The way we are made into disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world is by living into the Great Commission: found in Matthew 28:18-20:
Jesus, gave them his charge: “God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age.” (the words of Jesus, The Message translation)
In the Sacraments of Baptism, Holy Communion, Marriage, and Blessing of the Dying we commend the world to Hope in the everlasting Word of God.
Baptism is our entry into the church. Baptism is the sign of the New Covenant, the divine promise applied to the life of each of us. In Baptism, we are named God’s beloved.
As we gather at the Lord’s table, we confess and are forgiven. In sensitivity, we offer communion with Grape Juice and Gluten Free Bread. All are welcome at Christ’s Table.
Our relationship with God is a powerful force in our lives, one that is ever changing and ever constant.
In Church we are the Body of Christ, a working group of believers dedicated to Hope, Love, Trust, Justice, Steadfastness, Courage, and Faith.
The Word of God made flesh, Jesus is the incarnation, coming into creation to show us the Way, the Truth, and the Light.
A beautiful collection of books, letters, songs, and prophesies: the Bible, the Word of God, tells us of the struggle we will have in our relationship with God individually and as a people, and the redemptive nature of God our Creator.
We follow Jesus to know how to live our lives, but as theologian Paul Tillich writes, to be Christian means to ‘accept that you are accepted’ by God.
All of God’s children who seek a relationship with with Body of Christ are welcome. We ask that you tell us how you see inclusive behavior, so that we can come joyfully to welcome everyone.
The Holy Spirit, which is the spirit of truth left when Jesus ascended, works in us and through us and is active in the world. It is the inspiration for compassion, understanding, and service as we listen.
The Holy Trinity
God – Son- Holy Spirit. We acknowledge the three-in-one nature of God.
Sin means to miss, or to fail, in our Godliness. In those moments when we have missed the mark, we are called to repent, or to shift back toward God, in thought or action, that we may encounter the world with Love.
The family inspires our community. We are a Trinity Family, children of God. We also seek to serve families, nurturing every generation, providing support for life’s struggles, instruction and activities to keep life fun and interesting, and working with the model of a Faithful God to build trust.
