Vision & Values
Trinity Community Church is a Grace centered congregation that exists to Love one another and promote the Renewal of our communities.
We have organized Trinity Church around the values of Grace, Love, and Renewal. These values represent our relationship to God (Grace), to one another (Love), and to the world (Renewal).
God has wildly and completely accepted us in Christ.
This is the Good News of Christianity: Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, God invites us into his eternal love—totally by grace. This gracious love shouts, "The pressure's off!" and "You have nothing to prove!"
We love all people because God first loved us.
God's grace motivates us to love each other within the church and to work for the renewal of the world he has made. As the apostle Paul prayed, "May the Lord make your love increase and overflow for each other and for everyone else" (1 Thess. 3:12).
Our prayer is that God's love in our lives would have this three-fold movement as well: Love for God, overflowing to love for each other, and overflowing in love for everyone.
We exist for the renewal of our hearts, our lives, and our communities.
God's gracious love is the source of the renewal that takes place in our hearts and in the world. From deep love and changed hearts, we can unselfishly promote the renewal of our communities.
Our vision is nothing short of a Renewed Columbia—
Women and men thriving in their personal and spiritual lives,
Families made whole again by the love of God,
Neighborhoods coming together in unity and service,
Churches worshipping together as multi-generational, multi-ethnic spiritual families, and
Organizations serving the common good through redemptive work.
