Trinity Baptist Church Core Values
In 2016, while in the midst of ministry transition, the leaders of TBC prayerfully took time to consider the core values of our ministry. Recognizing the stage the ministry was in – both needing and being in the midst of change – we sought to consider how God has uniquely placed and wired this ministry to complete the mission of Jesus to be disciple makers. We believe that this provides an appropriate platform for ministry change and shifts in methods and approach while remaining true to what God has created us to be. As a result, below are nine core values that drive us and sit at the foundation of our ministry.
We will keep the Word of God central in all we are and do. Without it we have no foundation. We are unapologetically committed to preach, practice, protect and pursue the revelation of God in scripture as our ultimate guide.
The Importance of Family
We will seek to see Christian marriages maintained and strengthened in being the beautiful, God intended allegory of Christ’s relationship with the church. We will support those seeking to honor God through their families by pursuing godly marriages and parenting.
We will do our part in reaching all people groups in which God provides opportunity. We are committed to the preaching and living of the gospel to those both within our immediate community as well as across the globe.
Critical Intentional Fellowship
We will be intentional about the support of one another in the common pursuit of maturing as followers of Christ through social and spiritual connection – recognizing this as critical to Christian development and a practical need created by God.
We will keep prayer at the forefront of our ministry as the powerful, God ordained tool for the accomplishment of spiritual work for His kingdom. We will seek the will of the Lord, as well as provision to accomplish His will unashamedly through prayer.
Grateful Abundant Giving
We will be abundant, cheerful givers, enamored by the privilege to give back to God who has blessed us with the inexpressible gift of His Son, Jesus. Recognizing, all that we have belongs to Him and as His blessed children, it is our joyous responsibility to be a part of His work.
We desire to be a ministry that maintains cultural relevance, creativity and is intentional about seeking ways to promote the gospel message of Jesus without compromise of the truth. We desire not to keep anything sacred that does not have biblical precedence if it hinders the advancement of the gospel.
Reverent Authentic Worship
We desire to be a house of worship where believers are free to make reverent and authentic expressions of worship that attribute value to God. We reject the notion that worship is about singular styles or preferences, but it is the outflow of genuine relationship with God and an understanding of who He is communicated through His Word.
We desire to seek opportunities to work together, internally first as a unified, mobilized congregation, actively bringing to bear gifts of the Holy Spirit. We also desire to pursue external partnerships with members of the greater body of Christ, in the service and mission of our Savior.
