Christ-Centered Trinitarian Theology

Grace Communion Nashville is a church that embraces Trinitarian Theology and ministers to the city of Nashville from this theological perspective. Theologians from the history of the Church with whom we feel a special kinship include Irenaeus of Lyon, Athanasius of Alexandria, Gregory of Nyssa, Karl Barth, T.F. Torrance, J.B. Torrance, and Baxter Kruger, just to name a few.

Trinitarian Theology is a view of God in which we put Jesus’ revelation of the Father and the Holy Spirit at the center of everything we believe and do. We place particular emphasis on the loving, relational, and inclusive nature of God’s Triune Life. We believe that the Son of God has taken up permanent residence in human nature as the man Jesus in order to share this embracing life of the Trinity with all of humanity and the whole creation.

To learn more about the distinctive aspects of Trinitarian Theology we recommend Grace Communion International’s “You’re Included” site, The Surprising God Blog, Trinity and Humanity, and the booklet written by our denomination called The God Revealed in Jesus Christ: a Brief Introduction to Trinitarian Theology”.
