trinity fellowship church (TFC) history
TFC was formed in the summer of 1979 under the direction of Pastor Henry Aguilera. The first location of the new congregation was the Red Lion Downtowner Hotel. In addition to the hotel, during the next four years the congregation met at Boise State University and in a small building on Northview Avenue. In 1983 the building at 300 North Latah was purchased and became our permanent home.

what we believe
There is only one God, the unity of the Godhead is three eternal and coequal persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Spirit (Holy Spirit/Holy Ghost).
Deuteronomy 6:4; 1 Kings 8:60; Isaiah. 44:6; Mark 12:29, 32; John1:1-4 & 10:30
God the Father. He is omnipresent (everywhere), omniscient (all knowing), omnipotent (all powerful) and sovereign (all authority) over all things. He is the judge for all mankind’s sin and because of His unfailing love for us He offers all mankind reconciliation with Him through Jesus.
Psalms 139:7-12; Isaiah 44:24; Matt. 11:21; John 1:1; Ephesians 1:8; Rev. 19:6
Son of God and God the Son. Jesus was fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life and offered Himself as a sacrifice on the cross to pay the price for our sins. He rose from the grave and overcame death to be seated at the right hand of God and is ever interceding on our behalf. No one can enter the presence of the Father except through a personal relationship with Jesus. Through Him we can experience grace, forgiveness, love and eternal life.
Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1; Matt 1:21; Acts 4:12; Titus 3:4-6
God the Spirit. The Holy Spirit embodies the total eternal “essence”, personality and power of God. The Holy Spirit is given into the heart of every believer when he or she accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior. The Spirit is our helper, guide and teacher. He will help us to bear good fruit, remember the teachings of Jesus and show us the path of righteousness and truth. The Spirit helps us pray because He knows our minds and hearts.
John 14:16-31; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:26-27; I Corinthians 6:19
The published collection of 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as inspired by the Holy Spirit who directed 40 men to author them over a period of 1,500 years. These books have been intensely examined by church scholars who agreed ample evidence exists concerning their inspiration by God, based upon continuity in message, theme, context, and proclamation of the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is the inspired Word of God used for teaching, guiding and training followers of Christ.
Matt 4:4; Luke 3:2; Luke 5:1; Luke 11:28; John 8:47; Acts 11:1; Romans 5:4; II Peter 1:21; II Timothy 3:16; Revelation 6:9 & 22:18
Often referred to as a building it actually is the total of all Believers in Jesus Christ also called "The Body of Christ" and "The Bride of Christ." Locally, portions of "The Body" assemble together for the purposes of fellowship, worship, teaching in the Word, prayer, and discipleship (learning personal obedience to the will of God.)
Matt 16:18; Romans 7:4 & 12:5; Acts 2:40-47; I Corinthians 12:12; Ephesians 4:12 & 5:23; Acts 9:31 & 11:26
It is an outward expression of our belief and faith in Jesus Christ. The word “baptize” means to dip or fully immerse. While we are being submerged into the water it symbolizes our death to sin; while underwater this symbolizes the burial of our sin and rising up out of the water symbolizes our new life as a follower of Christ. Baptism is an evidence of salvation not a prerequisite.
Matt 28:19; Acts 2:38; Romans 5:3-5; Galatians 3:26-27
Prayer is a sincere, sensible, affectionate communication with God, through Christ. The Holy Spirit assists our prayers as God has promised, according to his Word, for the good of man both corporate and individual, with submission in faith to the will of God.
II Chronicles 7:14, Psalms 18:13 & 145:18; I Timothy 2:8, II Peter 1:18
Salvation is the deliverance by the grace of God from eternal punishment for sin which is freely given to those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. We are saved by grace, through faith and it is a gift that cannot be earned, only accepted.
Romans 3:23, 5:10, 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:5-8
Communion is prescribed by Jesus at the Last Supper that each time we take communion as a remembrance of the sacrifice He became for us. The bread represents His body broken for us and the cup represents His blood He shed for us.
I Corinthians 11:23-26
