What is the mission of Trinity Lutheran Church?
The mission of Trinity Lutheran Church, Greenville, South Carolina, is to proclaim the Word of God and to administer the Sacraments through a worshiping, learning, witnessing and serving fellowship of baptized people, so that the gospel will stand at the center of our individual and collective lives, and will foster our relationships with others at home, in the community and throughout the world.
Trinity Lutheran Church is one of nearly 10,000 congregations that make up the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States. The ELCA has about 4 million members across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The faith of the ELCA comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world. As stated in the ELCA mission, “we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus’ name throughout the world.”
South Carolina Synod
Likewise, we are also part of the South Carolina Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. As part of the South Carolina Synod, we seek to respond to God’s love by loving him and serving the people he has created. There are ministries for and with all ages, not only in the state of South Carolina but also in many parts of the globe.
