Mission

Reformed Church of the Holy Trinity is on mission to fulfill Christ’s commission, lovingly provide for the needs of the saints, and bring all nations in submission to the Crown Rights of Jesus Christ.

We believe that every member of the body of Christ is called to ministry.  Church officers are given to the Church to edify and equip the saints by the Word of God.  This sanctification process is to unify the Church in sound doctrine, tradition and good works.

This unity results in the body functioning as one with each member fulfilling their gifts for the advancement of the Kingdom of Christ.  Each member’s gifts and talents are important to the success of our mission, which is to glorify God as witnesses to the world while bringing all nations unto Christ through the ministry of the Word.

Christ has commissioned His Church to win the world for Jesus Christ.  We believe that begins with our immediate family, our extended families, our neighbors, friends, and acquaintances.  We also believe we are responsible to preach the gospel and advance the Kingdom of Christ beyond our communities.  While we will conduct local evangelistic efforts, we will also be involved and support domestic and foreign missions.

“Now the only way to avoid this shipwreck, and to provide for our posterity, is to follow the counsel of Micah, to do justly, to love mercy, to walk humbly with our God. For this end, we must be knit together, in this work, as one man. We must entertain each other in brotherly affection. We must be willing to abridge ourselves of our superfluities, for the supply of others’ necessities. We must uphold a familiar commerce together in all meekness, gentleness, patience and liberality. We must delight in each other; make others’ conditions our own; rejoice together, mourn together, labor and suffer together, always having before our eyes our commission and community in the work, as members of the same body. So shall we keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. The Lord will be our God, and delight to dwell among us, as His own people, and will command a blessing upon us in all our ways, so that we shall see much more of His wisdom, power, goodness and truth, than formerly we have been acquainted with. We shall find that the God of Israel is among us, when ten of us shall be able to resist a thousand of our enemies; when He shall make us a praise and glory that men shall say of succeeding plantations, ‘may the Lord make it like that of New England.’ For we must consider that we shall be as a city upon a hill. The eyes of all people are upon us. So that if we shall deal falsely with our God in this work we have undertaken, and so cause Him to withdraw His present help from us, we shall be made a story and a by-word through the world.”  –Governor John Winthrop, 1630

We reject the heretical view that the Church will fail in its mission.  Dispensational pundits have for too long plagued the Church with their self-fulfilling prophecy of doom.  God will judge individuals and nations, He will also be victorious through Christ.  We cannot judge the past or the future based on the present.  The world looked much bleaker during Luther and Calvin’s day and yet God brought forth regeneration, revival and reformation.  Not only can He do it again but will continue to do it until God is all in all.

“For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.  For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all. –1 Corinthians 15:25-28
