Our Distinctives

The Distinctives of Trinity Reformed Baptist Church

Defined by the Bible

We are committed to being defined by the Bible alone.

Biblical Theology

We seek to derive our theology strictly from the Bible, and we believe that such a theology is thoroughly God-centered and man humbling. Such a theology is in line with that recovered by the great Reformers of the 16th century, preached by the Puritans, and summarized by the 1689 London Baptist Confession.

Biblical Preaching

We are committed to preaching which is pervasively biblical, unashamedly doctrinal, intensely pastoral, and unmistakably Christ-centered.

Biblical Church Growth

We are committed to developing spiritually mature disciples who know the Word, live the Word, and spread the Word. Such disciples are only developed through strong biblical teaching and loving accountability.

Biblical Worship

We are committed to God-centered worship, which is marked by simplicity and passion, composed of expository and doctrinal preaching, public reading of the Scriptures, prayer, the sacraments, and singing. see Regulative Principle Concerning Corporate Worship

Biblical Families

We are committed to developing godly families by intentionally training men to lead their families in the ways of the Lord and by avoiding a multiplicity of church programs that either by structure or time constraints tend to keep families apart.

Biblical Leadership

We are led by a group of godly men (known biblically as elders) who are chosen by a spiritually mature congregation and are accountable to such.

Biblical Evangelism

We are committed to an evangelistic approach that proclaims the biblical gospel of repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, which relies on God to regenerate and convert the sinner not shallow salesmanship or psychological manipulation. We realize that such unbiblical (manipulative) approaches may result in numerical success but not necessarily in true Holy Spirit regenerated converts.
