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

Jesus wants his people to take the gospel, and the new life it brings, to the whole world. This mission starts locally and then extends to the corners of the earth (Acts 1:8). Our mission is to join in God’s sovereign and unstoppable plan to draw people from all tongues and nations to himself. It is the carrying of the best news in the world; news that there is reconciliation to God and adoption into his family.

God does not need us, but he chooses to use weak people to carry and proclaim this saving message. It is our awesome privilege to spend our energies and our lives for this cause. At Trinity, we want every member to be involved in God’s work, whether here in Lake County or around the world.

It is our desire to be involved in three ministry areas: local service, church planting, and international missions.
