Core Values

exalt

LIFT UP

One of the core values at Trinity is to EXALT the Godhead.  Through our lives and our love it is our desire and intent to LIFT UP God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. LIFT UP means to give God priority and preference in all of our lives.  It also means to recognize the supremacy of Jesus in and over everything.  He is before all and above all. Trinity exists to make this truth known.
In our worship gatherings you will hear people LIFT UP their voices in song and in word.  You will see people LIFT UP their hands in surrender and praise.  You will notice as people LIFT UP their eyes to the heavens, at times with unwavering hope and at times asking for divine help. These outward expressions are simply representative of an inner change.  So we LIFT UP our hearts, asking God to fill them with His love.  We LIFT UP our minds, depending on God to renew them with his peace.  We LIFT UP all of our strengths and all of our weaknesses, knowing that He cares for us.  And we LIFT UP our souls, convinced that only He is worthy.

edify

BUILD UP

One of the core values at Trinity is to EDIFY the Body.  Through sharing our lives and through loving one another it is our desire and intent to BUILD UP the body of Christ, His church. BUILD UP means to encourage, to affirm and to help one another in practical and in spiritual ways. It also means that we lovingly speak truth into one another’s lives; a truth that is always founded on the Scriptures.
In our worship gatherings we BUILD UP one another by providing a warm welcoming atmosphere.  We BUILD UP one another by praying for one another.  We BUILD UP one another by faithfully teaching the Scripture.  We BUILD UP one another through conversations before and after the services.  We BUILD UP one another through the various ministries provided to meet specific ages, genders and needs. We BUILD UP one another by choosing to be a part of each other’s lives beyond the walls of the church building.  We BUILD up one another because in doing so we get in on the work of our Savior who is faithfully and effectively building up His church.

evangelize

POINT UP

One of the core values at Trinity is to EVANGELIZE the world.  Through our words and our actions it is our desire and intent to POINT UP for all who are looking. POINT UP means to gently and respectfully share with people the hope that we have within us.  It also means that the way we lead and conduct our lives are pointing toward something or someone.  We live to point to Christ, to proclaim with our words and our lives that He is the only hope for this world.
In our worship gatherings you will hear our pastors POINT UP with their messages. You will hear songs that POINT UP to the Rescuer and Redeemer of our souls.  You might hear someone POINT UP by sharing about their personal faith journey.  You will come to see that we believe that all people POINT UP at something or someone; that everyone is living for something or someone and that everyone is saying “This is the best way to live” or “This is the way to live best”.  What makes Christianity unique is that when we POINT UP we do not point toward just another way to live or simply a better way to live but to Life Himself.  We do not POINT UP to a secret truth to know (mysticism) but to the One who is Truth.  And we do not POINT UP to just one more way to achieve salvation or to obtain approval (religion) but to the One who is the Way.
