VISION & BELIEFS
helping seekers to become believers
and believers to become disciples.
Vision and Mission
Our Mission is to be a caring family of believers communicating and applying the life-changing message of Christ’s unconditional love in San Antonio and in regions around the world.
We make four promises which means Trinity Baptist Church will partner with God and you, so that you can say:
- I will grow in love.
- I will grow spiritually.
- I will grow in friendship and community.
- I will grow by sharing my talents in ministry with others.
What We Believe
- We believe that God is One, known to us by the fullness of the Trinity; Creator, Christ, Holy Spirit.
- We believe that salvation is freely available to everyone through faith in Christ and that faith consists of:
- Accepting one’s need for forgiveness and God’s love
- Believing in Christ as the Son of God
- Committing one’s life to follow Christ
- We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired word and is our authority for faith and practice.
- We believe that baptism is a public act of celebration of one’s commitment to Christ.
- We believe that participation in the Lord’s Supper is a communal act of worship that symbolically affirms our continued faith in Christ.
- We believe in the historic Baptist Distinctives of:
- The Priesthood of the Believer (freedom of the individual conscience)
- Religious Liberty and its corollary, the separation of Church and State
- The autonomy of the local church
- We believe that every Christian believer is a minister called to contribute to God’s Kingdom work.
- We believe that everyone has the spiritual right to know God’s love and therefore we are active with missions and evangelism.
- We believe the challenge of the Great Commission to “go and make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19) requires the full deployment of all God’s ministers, both men and women.
- We believe each human being is made in God’s image.
- We believe how we treat the hungry, the thirsty, the naked, the stranger, the sick, and the prisoner is how we treat Christ.
