Our Story

 

Trinity Church began in June 1995 as a daughter church of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan (which was begun in 1989 under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Tim Keller). Trinity Church began with six couples and has grown to be a congregation of over 300 members and regular attendees. We partner with other churches and ministries through the region and all over the world in seeking to meet the needs of the people. This includes ministries seeking to minister to the hungry, to those facing family crises, and to the most poor around the world. Trinity Church is also active in new church development-globally, nationally, and locally.

While Trinity Church is still fairly new, our beliefs and practices are not new. Our theological commitments are catholic, evangelical, and Reformed. Our catholicity is seen in our wholehearted embrace of the historic Christian faith expressed in the ecumenical creeds of the universal church (e.g., the Apostles and Nicene Creeds). Our evangelical commitments are seen in our commitments to the authority of Scripture and the priority of God's grace; these are summarized in documents such as the Lausanne Covenant, the articles of faith of the World Evangelical Alliance, and the statement of faith of Fuller Theological Seminary. We also celebrate our Reformed heritage, seen in our commitment to the faith reflected in such documents as the Westminster Confession of Faith, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Thirty-Nine Articles.

Trinity Church is an active member of the Redeemer Network, the Metropolitan New York Presbytery, and the World Reformed Fellowship.  We seek to work closely with other churches and ministries, including Reformed University Fellowship, the Reformed Communion, City Seminary of New York, Redeemer Seminary, the Newbigin House of Studies, and Christian Camps & Conferences.
