Trinity Baptist Church exists to Glorify
God by Putting Christ First
The best way to learn about any
church is to spend time with that church family. This isn’t any different for
Trinity Baptist Church. However, there is an understandable desire to know
something about a church before you invest time and energy in being around it.
Therefore, we seek to make our values and principles known as best as we can
with the understanding that the real and best way to get to know us is to be
around us. That being said, here are some highlighted areas of our church that
are important to us.
We hope this point is obvious to anyone
who visits us. Jesus is the center of who we are and what we do. Our services,
ministries, efforts, finances, property, time, affections, and more are
reserved for Him and used for His glory. We filter everything thing we do
through the lens of “Putting Christ First.”
As long as we are putting Him first in the life of our church and in our
personal lives then we are on the right track.
We Are Serious About
Since Jesus is the love of our lives,
worshipping Him is a high priority for us. Our Sunday morning worship service
is highly guarded. Everything we do during this time has a scriptural backing
for it. We strive to not allow our preferences or wants to take over this
important time. Out of the whole week, this is the singular time that we call
our whole church together for the expressed purpose of worshipping and focusing
on Jesus alone. At other times during the week we offer many different opportunities,
but during our Sunday morning worship services we fight to reserve every ounce
of it for Jesus Christ.
The Bible is our functioning and believing
authority. We strive to live by it, not only in our church family, but in our
own personal and private lives as well. All our ministries are built around
explaining, encouraging, and applying the Word of God (Neh. 8:1-8). Therefore,
we offer ample time for Bible study and Bible study training for our members.
We know the value of learning together, but also of helping one another grow in
our personal Bible study efforts. We do this through a variety of ways throughout
the year, offering multiple avenues on a periodical basis, as well as our
regular Sunday School hours, Wednesday Night functions, and Sunday Night
We Take Membership
We believe it is an honor and privilege to
be a part of a local church. None of us are meant to walk the Christian faith
alone. Therefore, we must be devoted to walking together in the church. We are
an imperfect group of people who know the grace of the Lord Jesus and want to
show and give that grace to others. Since we see membership as vitally
important, we require a simple and informal process to become a member of
Trinity Baptist Church. This process requires meeting with a pastor to express
your testimony, share the gospel, and hear our expectation for members. This
serves a dual purpose. We want to know that someone joining this church is a
Christian and can articulate the gospel, and we want you to know what our
expectations of members are up front. Yes, we have expectations for our
members. These expectations are things like faithful attendance, exercising
your spiritual gift/finding a place of involvement, praying for one another,
This has been a staple of our church for
many years. Yes, we have disagreements – those things are bound to happen among
a group of diverse people – but we also know the benefit, and command, of
loving fellow Christians despite any differences we may experience. We strive
to live together in patience and unity – remembering the grace of Jesus shown
to each and every one of us. This priority has made us a loving, welcoming, and
caring group of people. We believe that any amount of time among us will reveal
the truth of this blessing among us.
As was stated before, the best way
to get to know us is to be around us. We are a welcoming and loving group of
people. We desire to show the same grace to others that has been shown to us.
So much more could be said about our church family. Please know, we are a
people who truly desire to keep Christ first. I like to say that we are a group
of people who know and have experienced the grace of Jesus and want to show
that grace to others. It doesn’t matter your background, your past, or you
present life, all are welcome here just like all are welcome to Jesus!
