Trinity believes the Bible is a grand story of redemption. It chronicles how God mercifully pursues, reclaims, and restores His people. In the pages of Scripture, we encounter Christ the King who undertakes a perilous journey for our benefit. It is his death and resurrection that reorders all things, including our hearts and souls.
As a church, Trinity is orthodox in terms of our beliefs and practices. Simply, our faith mirrors the historic doctrines the church has proclaimed for centuries. This is set forth, for example, in the Apostles Creed, which dates to the early Christian church:
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord – Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontus Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell(a). The third day he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church(b), the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting. Amen.
Furthermore, Trinity Church is reformed. This means we have a high view of God’s Word, the holiness and sovereignty of God, and the doctrines of grace. We are creedal and confessional. In other words, our church is grounded in the doctrinal beliefs resulting from the Protestant Reformation as well as the early Christian church.
Lastly, we are a denominational church. We are thankful for the accountability and fellowship we have with other churches in the area and across the country. If you would like to know more, please visit – https://pcanet.org/about-the-pca.
(a) Jesus did not physically descend to hell. He experienced the eternal punishment of God’s people for eternity in one moment on the cross. (b) This means the church everywhere for all ages.
