OUR BELIEFS

The Gospel Of Grace (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Jesus Christ:  His perfect example in life, sacrificial death on the cross, and victory over sin are the ultimate expression of God’s love and purpose for us.

Grace:  The work of Jesus to make us new is God’s undeserved gift. The new life, real change, and new life-giving relationships come through this grace alone.

Kingdom:  The grace of God in Jesus Christ reveals the new, dynamic reality of God’s reign. This is life God’s way revealed in the world through the Church.

The Church As Family (Ephesians 2:11-22)

Trinity:  The Triune God—Father, Son, and Spirit—is the pattern and power of our community. 
We are a family in Christ, belonging to God and each other by grace.

Scripture:  Our family follows Jesus by living according to God’s Word.  It is the authoritative guide
because through it we know Jesus Christ, the true and living way.

Reconciliation:  As a family in Christ, we belong to one another by grace, no longer according to

traditional, racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic divisions.  Following Jesus includes a commitment to the unity and diversity of God’s Kingdom, not only that in/of our locale, but as a biblical conviction, a strategic gift for witness, and foretaste of our eternal future.

The Work of Mission (Ephesians 2:10; 4:12-16)

Worship:  Mission begins and finds its power in worship.  It is through worship that God’s people encounter him, receive his perspective, are strengthened by his Word, and are sent by him into the world. And mission exists to lead the people of the world into the worship of God.

Discipleship:  To know Jesus through relationship and to follow him by action are inseparable aspects of mission.  We cannot truly know him without following him into action, nor can we imitate him without the intimacy of relationship.  Following Jesus includes both intimacy and action.

Service:  The work of Jesus through the Church is God’s gift to the world.  So our gifts flow from worship into service of both the church family and the surrounding community. Both are indispensable as expressions of God’s grace.

OUR HISTORY

 

 

The story of Trinity Gospel Church began in 1985 when a group of young, Filipino believers gathered for prayer in the northwest suburbs of Chicago. As they committed themselves to meeting together (with much food), God graciously blessed them in adding many family members and friends to their number, eventually leading to their first official worship service in 1988 as Northwest Filipino Baptist Church with the support of the Converge MidAmerica network.

Over the years, the church would see God graciously grow its impact beyond this initial scope of influence. Our resultant name-change to Trinity Gospel Church in 2016 was a practical step of faith that the church took to continue growing in living out the redemptive call of Christ for the good of “all nations” (Matthew 28:19).

“One family, many homes” has become our motto as we seek to welcome all people into “the household of God” (Eph. 2:19) with the love of Christ throughout the northwest suburbs of Chicago and beyond. Our prayer is that people would experience the life-giving grace of Jesus in the Gospel, finding restoration that empowers us to live transformed and impactful lives of faith in Him together.
