Our First 100 Years
One Foundation
- Centennial Celebration 1992 -

We are community of faith through ministry and mission in the name of Jesus Christ, our ONE foundation. Strengthened through His Word and Sacrament and in the fellowship of the congregation, Trinity Lutheran Church, by providing a Christian setting for worship, learning, and service, enables disciples to share God's grace and forgiveness, meeting modern day needs with a unique Lutheran orthodoxy. This brings about wholeness in individuals, families and community in spite of a broken and sinful world.

Mission + Vision


 We at Trinity Lutheran Church believe, teach and confess that God’s Word is eternal and unchanging. We believe that God’s Word is revealed to us both in the Word (Holy Scriptures) and Sacraments (Baptism and Eucharist). We believe that God’s Word is the sole foundation of our faith.
We believe, teach and confess that our parish is anchored in the one holy, catholic and apostolic church and the Lutheran Confessions. We believe we are members of a church that reaches far back beyond the reformer Martin Luther, to the apostles. We hold to the doctrinal tenets expressed in the historic liturgy, creeds and confessions as set down by the Lutheran reformers in the Book of Concord, 1580 A.D. which we believe are true interpretations of the Holy Scriptures. As Lutherans we believe that our heritage of reformation calls us to work diligently for the continuation of that reform and the unity of Christ’s church. We believe, teach and confess that through Baptism, God calls us to be members of the Body of Christ: the Church. We believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We believe that in the Eucharist, Christ gives us the gift of forgiveness for our sins and that by this Sacrament of the Altar, Christ nourishes and strengthens us to love and serve God by loving and serving our neighbor in family and community. In these ways, Christ is preparing us for both daily life in this world and for eternal life with Him in the life of the world to come. We believe, teach and confess that the life of faith begun in Baptism, nourished in the weekly Eucharist and marked by prayer, service to those in need and study, is the greatest adventure that life has to offer.
