What We Believe
When it comes to our theology, Trinity is a Lutheran Church. But what does that mean? Quite simply, it means that we put Jesus at the center of everything we do. Lutheran churches arose almost 500 years ago when Christians sought to return the church to the teachings of Jesus and His first disciples in a movement that has come to be known as “The Reformation”.
The key teachings of this movement were recorded and written down by Martin Luther in his Small Catechism, which was written to instruct everyday people in how to live out their faith by teaching them about God (using the Apostles’ Creed), how to live out their faith (using the 10 Commandments), and how to pray (using the Lord’s Prayer). It also explains some of the gifts that God has given us to nurture our faith, namely, the Bible and the sacraments.
