Trinity was founded in a home in 1934. The church later moved to a location in Warrenville, then a location near downtown Naperville until 1989. The church then met in Beebe School for two years. The present property was purchased in 1991. Phase 1 which includes the Auditorium, Gym, and Kitchen was completed in 1993. In 2000, Phase 2 was completed, adding the education and office wing.
The auditorium was completed in 1993 and seats about 300 people. It serves as the location for Sunday services, Wednesday night prayer gatherings, and various other ministries throughout the week.
The Main Lobby is located immediately to your right when you enter the parking lot under the covered drive-through. The Nursery Check-In desk is located here as well as the Auditorium/Sanctuary entrance.
The Refuge serves as our Youth meeting area and is the white building located behind our main building.
The Educational building is three stories and houses our office complex and classrooms for both Children and Adult ministries.
Educational Building Lobby
Located in the rear of the building, this lobby is used by Naperville Christian Academy. It is the gateway to the Education Building, and is connected to the gymnasium.
Trinity Church of the Nazarene is part of the Church of the Nazarene, an evangelical denomination with headquarters in Kansas City, Missouri. The Church of the Nazarene is part of the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition tracing its roots to an anniversary date of 1908. It was founded to spread the good news of the gospel and the message of hope and victorious, holy living.
The Church of the Nazarene is a Great Commission church. We believe that God offers to everyone forgiveness, peace, joy, purpose, love, meaning in life, and the promise of heaven when life is over by entering and experiencing a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We are called to take this message to people everywhere.
We believe that Christians can experience a deeper level of Christian living in finding victory over the sin that has held them captive and powerless. Power is available to every believer to witness and serve, through a deeper relationship with God, through the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
There are over 30,000 congregations around the world located in 164 world areas. Each local congregation of the Church of the Nazarene is a faith community that cooperates together with other Nazarene churches. Local churches offer worship, opportunities for serving others, fellowship, and training.
Missions is a major emphasis in the Church of the Nazarene: sending missionaries around the world, starting new churches, and making disciples. The Church of the Nazarene is a compassionate church, sending help and volunteers to areas that are devastated by crisis. The church is involved in inner city works in many of our major cities. The Church of the Nazarene believes in Christian Education and investment in our youth, with colleges and universities located around the world.
The Church of the Nazarene uses a representational form of government, through electing a Church Board to represent them in operating the church. We are organized into Districts, ours being the Chicago Central District, to cooperate together with other churches for greater effectiveness and stewardship. District Assembly is held every year with all churches who serve on that district coming together for reporting, fellowship, and accountability. Each local church elects people to represent them at this event. Leaders, lay and pastoral, are elected to serve in district leadership positions at this event.
Annually pastors of each local church report on the condition of their church and what has happened in the past year, including statistics and finances. District officials give reports and account for monies spent and what has happened in their areas of ministry, as well as communicate upcoming plans and events.
Colleges & Universities
As a part of the Chicago Central District, Trinity is a part of the Olivet Nazarene University Educational Region. Each district is in an Educational Region, served by one of the Nazarene schools.The Church of the Nazarene values Christian education and each church works and gives to keep this priority in place.
Pastoral students that are in training report on their educational progress and their spiritual lives, as well as what they are currently doing in ministry.
