Our History

Trinity Lutheran Church was founded in Springfield, Illinois, in 1841. Throughout its rich history, members of Trinity have been tireless in their efforts to serve God's people and spread the message of salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ. Early members of Trinity Lutheran Church were instrumental in opening elementary schools in the area, as well as a local college, seminary, and hospital.

To learn more about the history of Trinity Lutheran Church, we encourage you to explore our Archives section. In addition to a comprehensive congregational timeline, we also provide information on our historic downtown sanctuary, a database of past sermons, a complete roster of pastors and teachers who have served at Trinity, and a large collection of photo galleries.

Today, the members of Trinity Lutheran Church continue their efforts in Sharing Christ and Meeting Needs through an array of mission and outreach projects. Believing that God has placed us in our location for a distinct purpose, the congregation remains committed to downtown Springfield.
