Who We Are
We here at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church are located between Girard and Virden, IL.
This congregation is established so that its members, individually and collectively, may carry out the mission which Christ has given us:
- Make disciples of all nations, beginning here;
- Proclaim the Gospel of Our Lord to our communities
- Minister to one another, building up the body of Christ, encouraging each
other to our individual gifts for His service.
We here at Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church without reservation accept the scriptures of the OLD and the New Testament as the true Word of God, verbally inspired, and to only rule and norm of faith and of practice; and acknowlege and accepts all of the Confessional Writings of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, contained in the Book of Concord of 1580, to be the true and genuine exposition of the doctrines of the Bible. These confessional writings are the three Ecumencial creeds (The Apostolic, The Nicene, and the Athanasian), The Unaltered Augsburg Confession, The Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcal Articles, Luther's Large and Small Catechism, and the Formula of Concord.
This congregation is affiliated with the Southern Illinois District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
