Trinity Lutheran Church (LCMS)

Is the name of our Christian community. The Bible clearly speaks of God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit....It also clearly presents that there is only one God....Thus the term: "Tri" meaning three and Unity meaning one, Tri+Unity=Trinity.. Our one God reveals Himself to us in a special kind of community.


A Community of Faith
In the 16th century, Martin Luther was responsible for the start of the period we know as the Reformation and the beginning of the Lutheran Church. The three principles that under gird the Lutheran faith are: Scripture, Faith and Grace. Only by faith in Jesus Christ do we receive forgiveness. Through faith in Him we come into a relationship of peace with God.
