Purpose & Distinctives

The mission of Trinity Baptist Church is to fulfill the great commission (Matthew 28:19) by:

“Making disciple-making disciples of neighbors and nations for the glory of King Jesus”

We accomplish this mission given to us by Jesus as we faithfully live out His greatest commandment (Matthew 22:36-40):  36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” 37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 

We Love God:  Our love is cultivated through Private Worship: the act of regular reading and study of God’s Word, confession, prayer, and the spiritual disciplines.  Our private worship extends naturally into Corporate Worship, when the members of Trinity Baptist Church, part of the bride of Christ, gather to worship him through song, prayer, the expositional preaching of the Word, and the ordinances.  We give God all-of-life worship as we live with obedience, joy, and worshipful hearts in all we do.

We Love God’s People:  We experience unity rooted in our common identity as born-again children of the living God. Our Spirit-enabled unity fuels our ability to love one another, forgive one another, carry one another’s burdens, and experience the supernatural community available only to God’s people.

Our love carries with it a deep concern for one another’s well-being, both spiritual and physical.  We have a culture of discipleship, recognizing that all members have the responsibility and privilege to do the work of the ministry and build one another up.  We are generous with our time, talent, and treasure as we practice hospitality, support the work of the church, and provide practical assistance and help to one another.

We Love God’s World:  We understand that all men are created in His image and He desires for all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.  We support global missions through our prayers, financial assistance, and relationships with our missionaries.  Within the United States, we support the work of fostering other healthy churches.  At the local level, we minister to our community, both individually and corporately through relationships built on evangelism, service, and justice.
