Trinity Church of Kirkland, WA
Trinity Church is a local gathering of saints who love the Lord Jesus Christ because He first loved us. We are evangelical and reformed. By evangelical, we mean that we proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ to the world, that He is the only way of salvation, and believing that Christ came to accomplish just that, the salvation of the world. By reformed, we mean that we stand in the stream of historical Protestantism; we believe that God's sovereignty is absolutely exhaustive, and we embrace the doctrines of grace wholeheartedly.
In the church of God all things are to be done decently and in order. This pertains to the government of the church as much as to the corporate worship. Convinced that Jesus Christ, the Head of the church, will protect and guide her, we seek to obey Scripture through the following standards for the orderly and scriptural government of our church, Trinity Church. These standards do not supplant Scripture, but rather are an expression of biblical church government under God. While biblical, these standards are primarily procedural; the doctrinal position of the church may be found in the Statement of Faith. Read more.
Trinity Church is currently led by a session of four elders. They lead in the public worship and teaching in the church. We also have board of deacons who serve in the many practical matters of the church. And of course our church secretary is the one who insures that everything runs smoothly! Read more.
At Trinity Church we see ourselves deeply rooted in the catholic church of all ages and unified with all Christian churches of today. At the same time, we hold values that are a bit rare among today's churches. This unusual mix often generates many excellent questions that we love to answer. Read some of those here.
But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ. Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith. (NKJV)
