The ministry at Trinitas Church is directed to a unique convergence of cultures along the Interstate 405 dividing line between North King and South Snohomish counties. The people of our community need most of all to hear the good news about the gift of rich and genuine community in the present, and of life in eternity that is given to those who have faith in Jesus Christ. Moreover, it is the mission of Trinitas Church to teach believers to rely on Christ as their great hope and comfort, rather than their accomplishments, careers, and social status by instilling patterns of worship and spiritual discipline through our weekly worship services together. In having the worship of Christ infiltrate all that we are and do, we hope to bear witness to the saving power of the Gospel to our community, and to extend redemption to the world.
Lord’s Day Worship
The focal point of the ministry at Trinitas Church is in the corporate gathering of believers on the first day of the week, which was specially consecrated by Jesus’ Resurrection as the Christian Day of Rest from our normal labors (Mark 16:2-6; Acts 20:7; 1 Cor. 16:2; Heb. 4:9-10; Rev. 1:10). On the Lord’s Day, we gather as one body to remember our redemption from sin (Deut. 5:12-15), to encourage one another to godly living (Heb. 10:23-25), and to anticipate the return of our Lord Jesus in glory (Luke 22:15-16). Honoring the Lord’s Day is also one of our most powerful evangelistic tools. It supplies an unbelieving world with a visible confirmation that Jesus can be trusted when he said, “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).
Christ instructed the Apostles to make disciples of all nations through the administration of religious rites (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper) and ongoing instruction in Christ’s teaching (Matt. 28:19). In the early church, this ministry reverberated throughout the week in Christian fellowship (Acts. 2:41-42, 46-47; 4:23-31), personal evangelism, and the pursuit of godliness in believers’ relationships, vocations, and recreation (1 Cor. 10:31; Eph. 5-6; Rom. 12:1).
Following this New Testament example, Trinitas Church hosts annual church celebrations and picnics and retreats, provides opportunities for small group fellowship, study, and prayer, as well as outlets for mercy and evangelistic ministry.
The Great Commission
In commending the Philippian Church for her “participation in the Gospel” (Phil. 1:5), the Apostle Paul was thanking her for her prayerful financial support of his missionary labors (Phil. 4:15-20). The sincere ambition of Trinitas Church is to participate in the ministries of others, as they advance the Kingdom of God in Western Washington, and unto the remotest corners of the earth. Therefore, the visitors, supporters, and congregants of Trinitas Chruch may be blessed to know that they also support the ministries of the Northwest Church Planting Network, John and Katie (last name redacted for privacy) in Bangladesh, and the Multiplication Network.
