Our Beliefs

What do we believe?

Trinity Presbyterian Church is a church of people who love the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are sinners, who have no hope outside of the death and resurrection of Jesus, the renewal of the Holy Spirit, and the loving care and providence of our heavenly Father.

We are a church that is Historically Orthodox, Confessionally Reformed, Presbyterian, and Evangelical.

Historically Orthodox


The teaching of the Bible and historic Christianity is well summarized in the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds. These creeds focus on who God is (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) and what he has done for humanity (saved us from our sin through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ). We wholeheartedly count ourselves as heirs of that historic Christianity.
We are a congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America, which means that we believe the Scriptures teach that churches be led by a plurality of elders, but that we don't exist on our own as a church. We are formally connected and bound to other confessional Presbyterian churches in our region and in North America.

Confessionally Reformed


With the Protestant Reformers, we believe that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone, to the glory of God alone. We also believe the final authority for the church is the Bible. That Reformed understanding is best expressed and summarized in the Westminster Confession of Faith, which is the statement of belief and doctrinal standard of our church.
Though many churches in the last century have rejected the supernatural elements of the Christian faith (the miracles of the Bible, the deity and bodily resurrection of Jesus, the need for salvation from our sins, eternal joy in heaven and punishment in hell, the reliability of the Bible, etc.), we gladly believe what the Bible says about who Jesus is, what he has done, and our desperate need to be saved by him and changed by his Spirit.
