Trinity Presbyterian Church of Seven Springs

About Us

Our Mission & Vision

“We are a caring church family who loves God, and is committed to growing disciples of all ages for Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Our mission statement is fundamental as it serves as a guiding beacon, outlining our purpose and direction, providing clarity and focus, ensuring that all activities and initiatives align with the core values and goals of the congregation.

Core Values of Trinity Presbyterian Church:

Traditional Worship

Worship at Trinity Presbyterian Church is Christ-centered, traditional in style, meaningful, practical, and fulfilling. We gather together each week to worship God the Father, Jesus, His Son, and the Holy Spirit. In doing so, we acknowledge our covenant relationship with God and one another, and take that time to express our gratitude to Jesus Christ. Our worship services are opportunities for song, prayer, and hearing the Word of God proclaimed.

Biblical Education

Dependent on God, faithful to Christ, and led by the Holy Spirit, we actively love and embrace every person as a child of God. We teach timeless truths of the Bible in a manner that is relevant to living a life in Christ in a constantly changing world that challenges our values and beliefs. Our educational opportunities nurture and support people of all ages and at various places along their faith journies. We want to strengthen you and provide opportunities for your whole family to grow in faith and understanding of the Word.

Active Missions

We believe that the support of missions is an integral part of the role that each of us is called to fill as Christians. We actively seek to support many different ministries in our Tampa Bay area, as well as nationally and internationally. The volunteering of our time, along with the colletion of material gifts, including clothes, household items, and food, represents a powerful witness to God’s Spirit at work in the world today.

Engaging Fellowship

We are a place to belong. The relationships built at Trinity are a reflection of our ministry of friendship and caring. Opportunities abound for you to pursue friendships and build relationships with individuals who share your interests. As we come together, enjoying fellowship with other Christians, we are able to encourage one another in our walk with Christ. Explore the opportunities to get involved here. We’re glad to have you join us.

Faithful Stewardship

Committed to living faithfully to His word, we seek to return a portion of the gifts that God has given to us as an offering. Our time, our talent and our tithes. We each have God given gifts, and we are called to use them to His greater glory. In doing so, those gifts are returned to us in overwhelming ways that are hardly imaginable. Our faithful stewardship provides us the opportunity to share the Gospel with more and more people every day.

Selfless Servanthood

Jesus came to serve, rather that to be served. Each time we serve others, we become more like Christ. God has blessed each of us with different gifts and abilities. The Bible instructs us to “serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.” (1 Peter 4:10).

Our Beliefs

At Trinity Presbyterian Church of Seven Springs, our beliefs are the foundation of our service to the Lord and the community. Our commitment to these principles shapes every aspect of our ministry, from our worship services to our community outreach programs. By living out our beliefs, we aim to make a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and our wider community, reflecting God’s love in our actions and fostering a spirit of unity and peace.

Centrality of Jesus

We believe that it is through Jesus Christ, and only Jesus Christ, and His perfect obedience and sacrifice of Himself, that we are fully reconciled with God in this life and the next. As Christians, we confess that Jesus, fully human and fully divine, is both our Lord who claims our devotion and our Savior whose death on the cross secures our forgiveness. Jesus is Head of the Church and calls us to follow Him and serve Him in the world. Everything we do at Trinity Presbyterian Church centers on lifting up the name of Jesus and inviting people to know Him.

Authority of Scripture

We believe the Bible is the unique and authoritative Word of God, which teaches all that is necessary for faith and life. The prominence of God’s Word over our lives shapes our priorities, and the unrivaled authority of the Bible directs our actions to be in concert with Christ’s very best for our lives.

Presbyterian

“Presbyterian” is rooted in the Greek word presbuteros, which means “elder.” This concept defines our system of church government, structured around a group of Elders elected by the congregation– the same system of governement upon which our country’s democratic philosophies were founded. To be Presbyterian also means we are Presbyterian or “Reformed” in our theology. Reformed theology is a systematic way of understanding Christian beliefs. These essential beliefs include the sovereignty of God, salvation through faith in Jesus Christ alone, the authority of the Bible for faith and life, and our individual duty to be a minister of Christ at all times and in all places.

Evangelical

The word “evangelical” literally means “good news.” We are “evangelical” in that we believe that the good news of Jesus Christ for the wold changes lives. We believe Jesus is who He says He is– “the way, the truth, and the life, and that no one can have a relationship with God except through Jesus.” (John 14:6) We believe that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ changes us and reshapes our life purpose. Because God has changed our lives for good, we want everyone to know Him.

Missional

We believe God has a mission and is at work in every area of the world we live in to reconcile people to Himself through Jesus Christ. We, as people who follow Jesus, are to join His work in the world. We join His work in our everyday lives. We strive to live our lives in such a way that the way we work and live points to our Father in heaven. In essence, to be missional means that the church (all Christians) with Jesus as its leader, has her focus not inward, but rather outward as the heart and hands of Jesus Christ Himself, actively directing our energies to the people we serve and the world in which we live so that all would know Him.

Our Leadership Team

At Trinity Presbyterian Church of Seven Springs, we deeply honor and respect our leaders and elders, recognizing their commitment and dedication to guiding our congregation. We encourage our congregation to support, pray for, and honor these individuals, who selflessly devote themselves to leading our church forward.
