The friendly little lutheran church.

About Our Church

Holy Trinity is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Founded in 1914 by Slovak immigrants, Holy Trinity has served the Stafford area for over 100 years. We are a community of believers in Jesus, who are called out of the world for the special purpose of serving God, sharing the Good News of Life in Christ.

Come Join Us…

We strive to be a safe place of refuge for those who are in need, a people of joy in prayer and thanksgiving, and a community that strives for justice and reconciliation. We are a people who seek to forgive others the way we have been forgiven and we are friends who aspire to love one another the way Jesus loves us.

What we believe…

With the universal Christian church, the Lutherans confess and respond to the love of the Triune God: the Father, Creator of all that exists, Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in there ultimate victory over death and the devil; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God. We as a congregation take our name from this mystery of Who God is and we aspire to be of one mind and being, just as our God is one.

Being “Lutheran” means being truly catholic and truly evangelical—we honor and keep the Bible-based Tradition of worship of the early Christian church and we nourish a trusting knowledge of God that is grounded in the Good News of salvation, forgiveness, and wholeness in Christ as found in Holy Scripture alone.

Lutheranism, simplified:

The Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther and other reformers that inspired the reformation of the Catholic Church in the 16th century can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone. Faith alone. Scripture alone.

Grace alone: God loves everyone in the world, even though we are sinful, offending God and harming each other, and thus not deserving of God’s love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly. Even when we forget or reject God and don’t seek Him, God lovingly reaches out to us.

Scripture alone: The bible is God’s infallible Word in which God reveals His Law and Gospel. The Law shows us our error and need for God’s help and presence in our lives. The Gospel tells the Good News that God offers forgiveness and new Life in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian teaching.

Faith alone: By His suffering and death, as the substitute for all the people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe and trust in Jesus have the eternal life that He offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.”

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name.”

-Psalm 100:4

O come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.

Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.

For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods.

In his hand are the deep places of the earth: the strength of the hills is his also.

The sea is his, and he made it: and his hands formed the dry land.

O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the Lord our maker.

For he is our God; and we are the people of his pasture, and the sheep of his hand.

-Psalm 95

Today the Church remembers Gregory the Great, bishop of Rome from 590-604. Gregory is known for his sermons, for his liturgical composition (Gregorian Chant is named for this Gregory), and perhaps most importantly for sending missionaries to England to bring Christianity to the largely pagan Anglo-Saxons.

'When we attend to the needs of those in want, we give them what is theirs, not ours. More than performing works of mercy, we are paying a debt of justice.'

'Don't be anxious about what you have, but about what you are!'
