Striving to be Christ’s beautiful church, for the good of the world.
We are a community united by the growing understanding that though our sin goes deep, God's love in Christ goes deeper. Jesus is now forming us into a new community of love.
Some of us have been part of a church for years, and others are new or returning after years away. Whatever your story, our hope is that you can experience the beauty of Jesus with us.
Our story so far
Trinity began in 2001 around a dining room table. A few families met together, captivated by the idea of beginning a new grace-infused church with Jesus at the center. Over the course of many prayers in people’s living rooms and initial worship services at Hinsdale Middle School, our fledgling community of faith began to take shape.
And then God took Trinity down an unexpected path. A scandal involving our founding pastor brought shame, grief, and uncertainty about our future. At the same time, it also brought clarity. We could never be a church that has it all together. Our only way forward was in grace, trusting in Jesus’ ability to take what was broken and make something beautiful.
Since that time a growing group of sinful, broken people has been gathered together around the life-transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus. Our shared purpose is, in service to him, to become a community that displays his beauty and love to the world around us.
Beliefs that shape our life together:
With churches throughout the world and throughout history, we believe that our God is Father, Son, and Spirit. He is the creator of this world. He is beautiful and true, and our great joy and privilege is to worship him.
God pursues a relationship with us, his creatures. He tells us who he is and how we can know him through his Scriptures and most fully through his Son, Jesus. One of the most important things our church does is listen to him.
