History of Trinity Reformed Baptist Church
Trinity Reformed Baptist Church of Roanoke had its origin with the meeting of five Christian families in a house in Roanoke, VA in the early weeks of 1981. Those five families called themselves Trinity Fellowship and subjected themselves to the oversight of Grace Reformed Baptist Church of Mebane, North Carolina. Pastor Randy Pizzino committed to provide the initial leadership and pastoral ministry in June of that same year. The church was constituted in June of 1983 at which time we adopted the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith as a declaration of our understanding of what the Bible teaches.
Our growth and progress as a church have been slow and often halting; but growth and progress have been our experience only because of God’s grace and faithfulness. We met for over ten years in three different rented buildings and finished our own church building in the fall of 1994.
Our primary ministries are the carrying on of biblically-ordered worship on the Lord’s Day, corporate prayer in all of our weekly prayer meetings, instruction in the scriptures, and evangelizing the world both near to us and far away in other countries. We are blessed to enjoy the fellowship of several liked-minded sister churches in Virginia, the United States, and the world.
The following are some of the spiritual realities and blessings toward which we are striving for the glory of God:
- Doctrinal commitments that are warmly evangelical and boldly reformed
- Worship that is both reverent and celebratory
- Pulpit ministry that is expository and practical
- Service that has an inward focus on the needs of the church and an outward focus on the needs of the world.
