The Basics:                  

At Trinity Baptist Church we want you to realize that you don’t come to church, but rather you ARE the church. What we do in our building is the weekly gathering to help build you up and encourage you to seek Christ daily in your own personal relationship with Him. Whenever you join us, you will realize that at the end of our services you aren’t dismissed, you are SENT!

About Us

Trinity is a member of the Southern Baptist of Texas Convention. We unabashedly ascribe to the Baptist Faith and Message. We believe that God is hard at work in our community and through the members of our church. Come visit us to find out more!

We Are The Church:

The Church is not a building, It’s who we are. We know that God is moving through His church, and we want you to be a part of it. There are several ways you can get involved.


Growth: Invite a friend

We believe that making disciples doesn’t come through new ways of doing church, but through the ancient way — faithful preaching and contextualizing the unchanging gospel within a changing culture. Trinity teaches faith in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, as the only way to eternal life.


Groups: Join a small group

We believe that the only way to make disciples is to get people engaged in life. In the same way the early church was devoted to meeting day by day, we believe that we are too. Join a small group on Sunday mornings or a fellowship group that meets throughout the week and get involved!


Gifts: Join a team

We believe that “Loving God, Loving People, and Making Disciples” only comes through doing just that. Love is a decision that results in action. God has made you to be and do extraordinary things for His Kingdom. Use your gifts and talents to further His Kingdom by teaching, singing, playing, serving, etc. Find out how God is moving in your life and start serving now!


Giving: Give online or at Trinity

We believe that giving is not just an old testament command. God has blessed you with everything that you have from your talents and abilities to your finances and your house. Jesus taught more about giving financially than He did about Heaven and Hell combined. Your heart in giving truly displays the God you serve. We have made giving as easy as we possibly can whether you give at church or online.


It’s simple and secure. Whether you’d like to give, or schedule ongoing donations, you can do it all online, using a checking account, debit card, or credit card.
