Trinity Reformed Church of South Whitley, Indiana

Greetings to our new neighbors in South Whitley



To all of the good people of South Whitley and vicinity,

Greetings in the name of Jesus!

We’d like to take a moment to introduce ourselves. We’re Trinity Reformed Church, and we just moved into the old Church of God building at Market and Maple streets.

The congregation moved here from Larwill, but our people are from all over Northeast Indiana. Some live right here in South Whitley, but others are in Columbia City, Syracuse, Pierceton, Huntington, Fort Wayne, and even Goshen.

What unites us is what unites any Bible-believing church: The Gospel of Jesus.

“The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.”

1 Timothy 1:15 (ESV)

In fact, the name of our church gives you a brief summary about what we believe.

Trinity: Like all Christians throughout history, we believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the ancient creeds of the universal church, such as the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Definition of Chalcedon.

Reformed: We stand in the wide river of the faith defined most clearly in the Protestant Reformation through faithful men such as Martin Luther and John Calvin and expressed in the historic confessions, such as the Westminster Confession of Faith, that accurately summarize what the Bible teaches about God, mankind, and the church.

Church: We’re not just a group of random individuals, like a handful of BBs in a coffee can. We are a body of believers who are loyal to Christ and to each other, strengthening and sometimes challenging one another to love and obey our Lord and Savior.

We mostly preach verse-by-verse through entire books of the Bible. We recite creeds, catechisms, and prayers together as well as sing hymns and psalms. Our children stay in the sanctuary and worship with us and we celebrate the Lord’s Supper every week with bread and wine.

All in all, we are thankful to be a part of your town and our prayer is that our church would become a fixture of South Whitley for generations.

Please join us on Sundays for Family Study at 9:45 a.m. and Lord’s Day Service at 10:45 a.m. We also have a Bible study on Wednesdays at 7 p.m.
