What We Believe

 

Trinity Presbyterian is committed to being an inclusive, nurturing church family of loving, caring, and supporting members, glorifying God, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ, and serving the world. Trinity is a family of loving Christians who join to worship God, support one another, and minister to the community and the world.

We take the bible seriously, but not necessarily literally. We listen for what God is saying to us today while understanding the bible’s historical and literary context.

We believe children are not only our future, but more, they are our present.

We believe that God has given all of us gifts that God expects us to use to help transform the world into a more loving and caring place.

We believe that our job as followers of Christ is to combat systems of injustice, such as racism, sexism, homophobia and other forms of systemic violence that harms and oppresses others and our world.
