At Trinity College, we educate women and men to engage in God’s redemptive work in the world by cultivating academic excellence, Christian faithfulness, and lifelong learning. At the heart of our mission lies a commitment to engage the culture for Jesus Christ. Trinity’s purpose is to enable you to think and live like a Christian in the twenty-first century. We believe that God calls his people into many kinds of service; Trinity’s calling is to prepare them to serve for his glory.

We are a diverse community of cultures, church traditions, ideas, experiences, and stories. Our students come from all walks of life, different parts of the country, and around the world with a variety of experiences, hopes, and dreams. Yet we share the same DNA. We are all entrusted with the gospel—which requires us to know it, live it, and make it known. We seek to join faith and learning in a distinctive way at each of our TIU schools and Camp Timber-lee, inspiring possibilities as you explore how your Christian faith impacts every area of life. Our collective desire is to worship in faithfulness, mentor in hope, and build bridges in love unifies us all as we pursue academic excellence.
College is more than the classroom. It’s a living, breathing community full of opportunity, friendship, and discovery bound together through worship of the one, true God. This worship is infused into everything at Trinity—from classrooms, residence halls, and athletics to student activities and enjoying a meal. You will find the smiles of friends on campus, prayers, and songs rising in unison in Chapel, and an overall feeling of belonging that will extend beyond just four years of study. Come worship with us in faithfulness!
