Trinity Baptist Church
New York, New York
|Church Description *|
|Trinity Baptist Church is an international and multi-generational community dedicated to making disciples of Jesus Christ who are growing in faith, obedience, and joy, as they go out to advance God’s Kingdom. Trinity Baptist is one of the few evangelical churches in Manhattan with its own building. From that historic facility built by Swedish immigrants on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, they welcome a steady progression of newcomers to New York, integrating them into a unified spiritual fellowship, in the same spirit of hospitality that has prevailed since 1867. With an impressive variety of races, cultures, ages, personalities, and professions, Trinity’s people participate in a spirit of love and caring that suggests the presence of God. Members’ enjoyment of Trinity’s ministry owes much to the legacies bestowed by past visionaries and dreamers, whose hard work shaped the nature of this unique church.
