Who We Are

Trinity United Methodist Church is a fellowship of diverse believers united by our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We exist to make and nurture disciples of Jesus Christ through inspiring worship, transforming Bible study, and compassionate outreach. We strive to be a caring community of open hearts, open minds, and open doors where all may experience the love of God and the presence of the Holy Spirit. We commit ourselves through prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness so that God will use us to transform our community and the world.

What We Believe

Our number one belief is Love. We believe that God the Father loves his creation. We believe Jesus, His son, loved us so much that He died to defeat our sin and rose again to remove death for those who believe. We believe the Holy Spirit dwells in believers and helps us to expand our love for God and everyone else.

Our Mission

Our mission is to make and nurture disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Trinity UMC is first and foremost a community united around Jesus Christ. We are traditional and contemporary, liberal and conservative, young and old, believers and skeptics, wealthy and poor, talkative and quiet. Ultimately, we find our unity and love for one another in our pursuit of knowledge of the Divine. Also, most of us are Methodist in theology but don’t feel like you need to be Methodist in order to join us in celebrating the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
