Living here in the “Bible Belt” where there are lots of churches, many people wonder why so many new churches have been started in recent years. Trinity is one of those, and relatively young at 13 years, as far as churches go. Now that we have moved to our new Cary location, after meeting in Raleigh for the last 6 years, we would do well to ask ourselves, “Does the Cary/Apex area need another church?” I believe the answer is “Yes” - for a number of reasons. Chief among them is the fact that across America so many people do not attend church. A long-standing reality is that on any given Sunday, only about 35-40% of Americans are in church. In recent surveys conducted, it was found that 25% of adults ages 18-29 have no religious affiliation and that 22% of Americans never go to church. The U.S. is one of the largest mission fields in the world. The Triangle area is no exception. More churches are needed.

As we settle into our new facility, we would also do well to consider what kind of church we are. We believe that people need the kind of church that Trinity is. Consider our name as descriptive of what we are. “Trinity” Community Church is part of a denomination, The Evangelical Free Church of America, that emphasizes doctrine and historic Biblical Christianity. One of our distinctives and strengths is study of the Bible. We call ourselves a “Community” Church, as well. We believe that the local church is a community, a living body where each member is important to its life and ministry. We desire to be a true, spiritual family with deep and meaningful relationships. We are a “Church”. We are not merely an organization. We have been called out of the world to be Christ’s people, to receive His grace and mercy, to be separated from sin. Having been called out, we are called to be together in community, and to represent Christ and His Gospel through our life and witness. Finally, Christ calls us, as the Church, to live out all of the implications of the Gospel - righteous, Christ-like living in obedience to the Bible.

We, the members and regular attendees of Trinity Community Church, firmly believe God has called us to bring the Gospel and its implications to our community. We believe, in a humble way (knowing that there are many other good churches which are faithful to Christ and the Gospel), many of the people in our field of influence need our church for their spiritual well-being. We’ve moved to Cary/Apex on a mission, with a mission.
