vision & values

Here you’ll find out more about our DNA as a church; what makes Trinity distinctive.

Our Purpose

This is summarised by our tag line ‘Seeking To Know Christ Better And Make Him Better Known’. Our ultimate purpose at Trinity is to glorify God as we seek to:

  • reach out – we want to tell everyone what God has done in Jesus.
  • build up - we want to help one another grow in our relationship with God, so that we know Jesus better and prayerfully shape our lives in the light of his will; and to encourage and train every Christian to use their God-given gifts in his service
  • send out – and to send people out to proclaim and live the gospel in their everyday lives where ever they end up.

Our Ministry Values

Here are three values which underpin what we are about and which spell out our agenda as a church:

  • the means of gospel ministry is the prayerful teaching of the Bible - it is as the Bible is taught in the power of the Spirit that God’s voice is heard and hence people are brought to faith and brought to maturity.
  • the heart of gospel ministry is the proclamation of Christ crucified - because the message of the cross is God’s way of saving people from his coming wrath.
  • the focus for gospel ministry is the local church - believing that it is primarily through the local church that unbelievers are brought to faith in Christ and believers are built up in him.

Our Vision Statement

“At Trinity Church, we will encourage one another so that, in our words and lives, we enjoy and proclaim together the good news of Christ crucified so that Lancaster (and the wider world) might know Jesus for themselves as Saviour and Lord. And we do all this not to make Trinity look great, but so that God gets all the praise he deserves.”
