IMG_9124-1Meet Trinity Bible Church: 

In May of 1999, God led our current pastor, Jon Sherman, to Trinity Bible Church. Over the years, our staff has grown from a total of two in those days to 25 full-time and part-time staff members serving a rapidly expanding church family!

Trinity Bible Church began as a small group of about ten families and friends who started meeting together December 10, 1978. They all lived in the Aledo area and grew tired of driving into Fort Worth in order to attend a Bible church. So, at the home of Dr. Tom Howorth, they met and agreed to start their own local church.

From the beginning, these families desired that the defining marks of Trinity Bible Church would be (a) submission to the authority of God’s Word, (b) a family-friendly environment, and (c) a generous heart towards outreach. And those indeed remain our defining marks today.

In 1980, we purchased the first five acres where our present facilities are located. Over the years, that first building was improved and expanded. Later, we bought nine additional acres to allow for greater expansion. We nearly doubled the size of the main church structure, built a new Student Ministry building, and added more parking. That work was completed in the fall of 2010.

In 2013, we purchased another five and a half acres of adjacent property and added hundreds of new parking spaces to accommodate our growing church family. Also in 2013, a new worship service called The Feed was launched to provide a different style of music in a more intimate setting.

From our humble beginnings in Aledo, Texas, God has blessed Trinity Bible Church; He has expanded our influence as we reached out to our neighbors in Parker and Tarrant Counties, planted new churches, and sent out missionaries. We are currently supporting churches, ministries, and missionaries in our community, our country, and around the world!

Willow Park, Aledo, and Weatherford, Texas (Parker and Tarrant Counties)

Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington Metro Area

Fort Worth welcomes visitors from around the world to experience the great American West and rich arts and culinary treasures. There are more than 92 attractions in a 10-mile radius of downtown. The city offers the No. 1 downtown in America and is located minutes from AT&T Stadium and DFW International Airport. As one visitor says, "unpretentious, laid-back, and charismatic in all the right ways." For a weekend, a business meeting, sports or family reunion, Fort Worth offers experiences to last a lifetime.

Dallas is the eastern, larger half of the Dallas-Fort Worth “Metroplex.” Dallas is what most people think of when they first think of Texas: big, busy, growing, cosmopolitan, rich, glitzy, and self-confident. Dozens of gleaming downtown skyscrapers tower above the level plains, while an assortment of neighborhoods and suburban commercial centers sprawl in all directions around the city core. It has far outgrown its beltway and is supported by a spider web of freeways going in all directions, a network almost without compare in other U.S. cities. Long commutes are common, thanks to the large population, growth rate, and urban sprawl, but most don’t commute to the city itself. A rapidly developing rail-transit program is helping to cope, but Dallas is pretty much a “motor city.”

Above all else, Dallas is a center for corporate America. Because of its central location relative to the rest of the United States, Dallas is a popular convention site and site for many corporate headquarters, and if a company isn’t headquartered here, it probably has a large regional office. Also contributing are the favorable business climate, the availability of educated workers, and the unspoken notion of being in the center of all things big. Although there is little oil produced in the immediate area, Dallas’ growth began with the east Texas oil boom, and petroleum continues to be a large factor in the local economy.

The strong economy and wealthy population have endowed the city with a collection of arts, cultural assets, and parks. The many cultural landmarks include theaters, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Meyerson Symphony Center, and the Frank Lloyd Wright–inspired Dallas Theater Center. Filling out the roster of major-league teams are the NFL Cowboys, MLB Rangers, NBA Mavericks, and NHL Stars, all drawing a strong local and national following. Dallas reputedly has more retail stores and restaurants per capita than any other place in the country. A few lakes exist to the north and east, but outdoor recreational opportunities in the surrounding flat plains are limited. Nonetheless, as the center of the nation’s air-transport networks, and the hub for American and Southwest Airlines, Dallas provides numerous getaway opportunities; the city lags only behind Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta in the number of available airline flights.
