Hope Church held its first service on March 18, 1966. It was the vision of our first Pastor, W.F. Carlile, who was blessed and sent out by First Assembly of God in Cookeville. Ten families joined that vision and First Assembly of God in Algood was born. On August 1, 1977, under Pastor Buford Nivens, our name changed to Trinity Assembly of God. Recently, in June 2022, our church underwent a name change to better reflect our mission to our community - to bring HOPE to the hopeless!
Over the years, our church has steadily focused on serving the people of the Upper Cumberland. Though our church has gone through many changes, we are still a vibrant community of people that is committed to our original vision. Our purpose is to love people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus. We do that by LOVING God and people, GROWING together to spiritual maturity, and SERVING our community.
We LOVE God and Others - demonstrating our faith by loving God and each other passionately.
Luke 10:27-28 (NLT) | The man answered, “‘You must love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!”
We GROW Together to Maturity - demonstrating our faith by pursuing spiritual growth fervently.
Colossians 2:6-7 (NLT) | “And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.”
We SERVE Our Community - demonstrating our faith by serving our community relentlessly.
Mark 10:44-45 (NLT) | “And whoever wants to be first among you must be the slave of everyone else. For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
