Our mission is to experience and proclaim the transforming power of the gospel for the glory of God and the good of all people.
Gospel-transformed. There is no more potent force than the gospel. It is the power of God for salvation that brings complete and total transformation. Our desire is for a gospel-centered ministry, in which all we do springs from and is motivated by the gospel.
We believe the gospel is the good news that Jesus lived, died, and was raised according to the Scriptures for our salvation and for the ultimate reconciliation of all things. We believe that we are made right with God through the finished work of Jesus Christ. It is this belief that frees us to love others and walk humbly with our God.
Our vision is to be a God-centered, grace-saturated anchor church in this community for generations to come.
God-centered describes our commitments. We believe God is ultimate and we are not, and that glorious truth frees us and settles us. We demonstrate that reality by being committed to honoring God’s name in worship, expanding His kingdom through our work, and doing His will in our lives.
Grace-saturated describes our culture. Our culture is shaped by people who have freely experienced and joyfully express grace. Knowing ourselves to be people who have been forgiven much, we extend such forgiveness to one another. When grace becomes the atmosphere you live in, the air you breathe, then everything changes. You are no longer as focused on what is wrong with the world, which is obvious. Or what is wrong with us, which is plenty. But on what is right with Christ, which is endless.
Anchor church describes our long-term ambition. We desire to be a church that encourages stability, cultivates community, and contributes to the flourishing of Lake Nona for generations to come.
At Trinity, we have three distinct core values stemming from our mission and vision: sound doctrine, renewal of the Holy Spirit, and faithful living.
We desire all people to experience the transforming power of the gospel in their life, fulfilling the great commandment:
And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. (Mark 12:30-31)
Because we are made in the image of a Triune God, this process takes a 3-fold shape:
- Sound Doctrine (Head): This is how we love the Lord with all our mind. If you are going to experience the power of the gospel, then the word of Christ must richly dwell in you.
- Renewal of the Holy Spirit (Heart): This is how we love the Lord with all our heart and soul. We are spiritual beings and must be continually renewed by the Holy Spirit. This happens through dependent prayer and praise.
- Faithful Living (Hands): This is how we love the Lord with all our strength and our neighbor as ourselves. By the power of the Holy Spirit, we walk humbly and joyfully in the world, living out the gospel in all areas of life. We seek the salvation and spiritual flourishing of those who are near and those who are far from us. We seek to be honest, just, and faithful in all our relations, embodying the gospel with loving and holy lives.
