Teaching

Teaching the Good News of Jesus Christ is central to who we are at Trinity Church. Each week, Biblical truth is taught during our weekend worship services by our pastors, elders, and visiting speakers.

Trinity typically focuses on God's Word, challenging us to live fulfilled and meaningful lives patterned after the life of Jesus Christ. Our Teaching Ministry exists to express our love for Almighty God through an honest and relevant examination of the Bible.

We invite you to join us on Sundays at 10am Pacific time, if you can’t make it in person please join us online via our live stream.  You can also view past weeks' teachings by following the links below, or listen to them by subscribing to our podcast on your IOS or Android device.

The Church, like their cornerstone, is supposed to differ substantially from the mainstream of society.  Based on our faith in Christ and His sacrifice as a means of righteousness, Paul gives a picture in Romans 12-15 of the practical values and norms of followers of Jesus.  The end result is a people, set apart by God, which are counter-cultural to the world around them.

The Holy Spirit: Unlocking The Mysteries

August 26, 2018

After the last supper the disciples were “freaking out” because Jesus said that He was going to leave them.  But Jesus encouraged them saying, “It is for your good that I am going away. Because unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him to you” That Counselor is the Holy Spirit - God in us  - our constant helper and advocate. 

It is impossible to do the Christian life apart from the Holy Spirit. And yet the Holy Spirit is often a mystery to us; misunderstood, neglected, or avoided altogether. And yet He still remains the essential Person, Presence, and Power for any and all transformation into the image of Jesus Christ. This series aims to unlock the mysteries that often surround the Holy Spirit.

It has been said that a  parable is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. The Lord Jesus frequently used parables as a means of illustrating profound, divine truths.

This series covers many of the parables found in the book of Luke and tries to put together their meaning for us today.
