We, as members, gather to receive God's gifts of Word and Sacrament with one another at God’s house here at Trinity Lutheran Church. Through God's continued blessings, we offer opportunities to grow in our faith. We grow in faith when we receive God’s means of grace which are His Word, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.
Secondly, we are always striving to reach out to individuals, families, our community, and to our world in response to God’s love for us. We are called to assist each other and be ready to extend a loving hand toward others. We are especially called to be ready to witness about our faith in Christ and to share God’s message with those around us. We love because God first loved us! If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to grow with us!
About Trinity Lutheran Church Today
The Trinity Lutheran congregation is entering its second century of service to God and the Wellsboro community. Trinity is a member church of the Eastern District of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS). We are an evangelical (Gospel-centered) church, rooted in the Scriptures and dedicated to the mission of our Lord Jesus Christ.
What We Believe
With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds 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 the ultimate victory over death and Satan; 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.
Being "Lutheran," our congregation accepts and teaches Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:
Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.
In His Great Commission, Christ instructed all of us, who once lived in the darkness of unbelief, to go out among the world and teach the saving truth exactly as He taught and to baptize in His Triune Name.
“And Jesus came and said to the apostles, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (English Standard Version, Matthew 29:18-20)
"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." ~Proverbs 22:6
We collectively promote a Christian environment to support the highest
achievable intellectual, spiritual and social development of our students.
We empower our educators to this task, and partner with our families to this commitment.
