history

 

 

Trinity was founded in 1867 as The First Swedish Baptist Church of New York. We dedicated our current building on January 24, 1931 and officially changed our name on January 25, 1942. This latter date also marked the transition from Swedish to English in  the major sevices. Evidence of our Swedish roots are visible in the unconventional architecture of our buildingThe Story of our church and Our Baptist heritage is clearly seen in our beliefs.  We emphasize Christ as Saviour, the Bible as authoritative for faith and practice, believer's baptism by immersion, a regenerate church membership, and democratic organization.
