Our Confession

First Trinity Church is part of a 2.6 million member church body called the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.

We believe:

  • There is one eternal God and Three Persons in the Divine Essence, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • Sin separates us from God and condemns us to eternal death.

  • God sent His Son Jesus Christ into the world to save us.

  • Jesus Christ’s death on the cross and bodily resurrection from the dead restores our perfect relationship with God.

  • Everyone who believes in Jesus and is baptized will have eternal life.

  • Eternal life is a free gift of God; we can do nothing to earn it.

  • Saving faith in God comes only through the power of the Holy Spirit.

  • The Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God through which the Holy Spirit creates and sustains the Christian Faith.
