God’s Mission Among Us

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20

We are a church that looks at things very different than most other churches. When it comes to “our mission” we don’t have one. Instead, we believe that God has the mission and it is through Christ and His Church that God works His mission.

God’s mission reflects the very nature of who we believe the Triune God to be: relationship, love and life.

In loving response to the brokenness of creation, God’s mission is to reconcile all creation with its Creator through Christ Jesus and to restore creation to the fullness of life within that relationship.

We believe and teach that Trinity ELC, as part of the Church, exists solely to serve God’s mission and its Lord Jesus Christ.

God has called and gathered people into Trinity ELC to participate with God in the unfolding of God’s mission in this time and place. Central to that mission is baptizing people into Christ’s body and teaching them to live faithfully within all that Christ has commanded.

Simply put: God’s mission is to restore all people to a right relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.

This is the mission we have been given and we invite you to become part of the relationship, love and life God desires for you!
