Holy Trinity began when several couples came together to try to hear God’s voice for their lives. Certainly, these people did not have planting a church in mind! “We only knew we had a hunger in our spirits that we could not quench. We met on Wednesday nights in homes to pray, to search the Scriptures, share a meal and just be together in caring fellowship with one another.
Over the next year or so, we began to sense something happening within us, an excitement, a holy whisper to surrender ourselves more intentionally into His hands, wherever He might lead us.” These couples, sensing the leading of the Holy Spirit, voted unanimously to seek to plant a church in Metro-Jackson. The group met with Bishop T. J. Johnston and David Young, both from St. Andrew’s Church in Little Rock, to begin that process. Holy Trinity was thereupon formed and now grows in number and in the Spirit, as we follow His lead and growth in grace and knowledge of our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
We continue to seek to establish a church that is founded on God’s Holy Word and committed to the truth that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone. We are united in the desire for a liturgical form of worship rooted in the Scriptures as the Word of God. Our fellowship represents the three streams of scriptural, sacramental and spirit-filled, but these worship preferences are considered to be three streams converging into one river of life. Our purpose is to encounter and share the Holy Trinity through worship, community and mission in the Jackson metropolitan area, in Mississippi and to the ends of the earth.
