In light of COVID-19, all in-person ministries are suspended. Sunday worship will be livestreamed beginning at 10a. We continue to develop ways for us to maintain life together while apart. You can find those helpful resources and scheduled events here.
You're not lost!
Looking for Green Lake Presbyterian Church? That's us—Trinity Church Seattle—formerly known as Green Lake Presbyterian Church. We recently acquired the historic church building on the corner of NW 65th & 23rd Ave NW in Ballard. And having moved 2 miles west of Green Lake, we determined it was time to change our name.
Come join us at our new home!
Service Times: 10:00am (Livestream Only)
Vision & Values
The GospelWe believe there is not an area of life—whether our thinking, feeling, relating, working, and behaving—that isn’t impacted or influenced by the story of the gospel.
The gospel isn’t merely a philosophy or even a good piece of wisdom to live by; it’s an announcement, God’s good news for all of creation.
In the Scriptures we find that God has not left the world to itself, but has radically entered into time and space to redeem it from sin and despair through the person and work of Jesus. This is the central truth of Christianity. It forms the core conviction for all that we do. Knowing we are terribly broken yet deeply loved humbles us while simultaneously supplying us with confidence that we are accepted before God. The gospel rests not anything we’ve done, whether our successes or failures, but upon God’s grace and mercy alone.
Make Disciples. Beautify the City. Grow the Kingdom.
Imagine A City Of People Dedicated To Walking With Jesus.
The gospel teaches us that God did not remain distant from his creation, but walked among us in Jesus Christ. We believe this simple truth changes everything: the way we look at the poor and embrace our neighbor, how we engage our vocations and make our art. It changes families, communities, as well as our understanding of the world.
We believe this vision–of equipped disciples, engaged in God’s Kingdom work–is not only compelling, but necessary. It’s something Seattle needs and something all of creation longs for.
At Trinity Church we embody four unique Gospel values. These values, along with our vision for gospel ministry, form and determine our life together.
This is our chief core value, the one from which the others flow. If we’re to be dedicated followers of Jesus, then the gospel must first be formed in our heart. This happens when we come to value the things Jesus valued and love what he loved. Gospel formation happens through worship, training in Christian living, and acts of serving one another. We believe this formative path of learning, doing, and experiencing not only glorifies God, but also transforms the soul and blesses others.
Following Jesus is never a solo process. It demands a community of fellow followers who are able to walk with us, to support us as we seek the things of Christ. Community means both deep joy and gratitude as well as the possibility for sorrow and brokenness. This is because community is more than people who look, think, and act like us. Gospel Community means partnership and accountability in a singular vision–to pursue the things of Jesus.
God calls each one of us to a particular mission. Whether that mission takes place in the home, an artist’s studio, or classroom, God has equipped each of us with different gifts to serve others and expand the reach and influence of the Kingdom. What are your gifts? We believe these gifts are important and necessary for the health and growth not only of the church, but for the individual’s personal discipleship as well.
Church Planting &Ministry Multiplication
Jesus compares the Kingdom of God to a mustard seed, something small and fragile but with large potential for growth and multiplication. The same is true for the church. God calls us to multiply our efforts by planting churches and ministries so that His gospel can take root in new places. We’re on a mission to grow not only in spiritual vitality and health, but also in influence, scope, and reach. And we want you to be a part of it.
