What do we believe?With Trinity's unconventional and dynamic approach to ministry, people are sometimes surprised to learn that the congregation is actually a part of a historic mainline denomination. Trinity is a congregation of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS). The LCMS teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God (The Trinity): the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
What is a "Lutheran"?A Lutheran is a Christian who accepts and preaches the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.
