The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the prophets.
We believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead and life of the world to come. Amen.
Trinity Lutheran Church believes in Christian tithing, regularly dedicating a portion of one’s income to the work of God. We model that belief in tithing by dedicating 1/10 of the church’s unrestricted income to “benevolences,” helping those in the community who are least able to help themselves and supporting those outside Blanco who are working to fulfill the Great Commission.
Among those the church has supported are the following:
- Blanco Good Samaritan Center
- Blanco County Child Protection and Advocacy Board (BCCPAB)
- Blanco Emergency Medical Services (Blanco EMS)
- Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) for the Highland Lakes Area
- Hill Country Children’s Advocacy Center (HCCAC)
- Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center (HLFCC)
- Upbring (the new Lutheran Social Services)
- Teen and Adult Challenge of Texas (ATCOT)
- Institute of Lutheran Theology (ILT)
- Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) National Office
- Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) Texas Office
- Lutherans for Life (LFL)
- Ethnomedia Associates
- Wycliffe Bible Translators/Summer Institute of Linguists (SIL)
