Nancy and Joe are passionate about reaching Dallas. Their love for people and ministry led them to launch Trinity Dallas in 1995. Prior to launching this church, they served on the staff of Sojourn Church in Carrollton.

Their God-given mission is to build a community for those who are searching for more of God. They are driven by a hope to see people live to their fullest potential and believe authenticity and transparency are vital to a strong and vibrant spiritual family. Making disciples, raising up spiritual sons and daughters, and training leaders are the focus of their strategy as they are committed to building and growing a healthy, happy church that impacts the city of Dallas and reflects Heaven here on Earth.

They are proud parents of two married children who have blessed them with six precious granddaughters.

Trinity Dallas began as a church plant in 1995 when Pastors Terry and Susan Moore sent Joe and Nancy from Sojourn Church in Carrollton. They continue to be mentors and a source of support for our pastors and church.

Our first service was held in the ballroom of the Stoneleigh Hotel in Uptown Dallas on January 22, 1995. After our church outgrew several venues across the city, God created an opportunity for us here on Cole Avenue. Since purchasing this property in 1998, we have joined the C3 movement of churches who are pursuing the vision and mission of the church on a global scale.


Trinity Dallas has become a place for families and friends to experience and celebrate the goodness of God. If you are searching for more of God and are looking for a place where people authentically love one another and love God, then this church is for you! Our hope is that the Holy Spirit would add you to our community and that you would become a vital part of our spiritual family. We have prayed and prepared for you.


The Bible: Our Foundation

We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible, uniquely authoritative Word of God   (2 Tim 3:16; 2 Pet 1:21; Rom 15:4; 1 Cor 2:13).

God: Our Creator

We believe in one eternal, almighty, and perfect God, who eternally exists in three divine persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, who created all that exists for the purpose of revealing his glory (Matt 28:18-19; Mk 12:29; Jn 1:14; Heb 1:1-3; Acts 5:3-4).

Jesus: Our Rescuer

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious death on behalf of sinful people to atone for sin through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory (Jn 1:1; Matt 1:23; Heb 4:14-15; Acts 13:26-34; Jn 3:16; 1 Pet 2:24; Phil 2:9-11).

The Holy Spirit: Our Passion

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life. The baptism in the Holy Spirit releases the fullness of the Spirit and is evidenced by the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit (Jn 14:16-17, 16:7-15; 1 Cor 12:8-10; Eph 4:7-13; Rom 12:3-8; Acts 1:4-5, 2:4).

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential   (Titus 3:5; Jn 6:63; 2 Cor 3:6, 18; Rom 5:1; 1 Jn 5:11-12).

Unity in Christ: Our Birthright

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 12:12-27; Eph 4:3-10; Col 3:14-15).

Together, we affirm the ancient beliefs of the church fathers as outlined in the Apostles’ Creed and Nicene Creed.

Resurrection: Our Future Hope

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of condemnation      (1 Cor 15:51-52; 1 Thess 4:13-18; 2 Thess 1:7-9).
