Who We Are
Two Ministries, One Congregation
Located in the heart of Pomona, California,
We strive to re-vitalize and re-ignite God's love through our passions, relationships, and ministries
in our communities and families.
We are grateful to worship God in our native languages: Vietnamese and English.
Our Mission is to provide a safe space where
"disciples of Jesus Christ are made for the transformation of the world and where ALL people can experience the love and compassion of Christ."
Trinity UMC was established in 1876 as First Methodist Episcopal Church, being the first denomination to form a congregation and build a church in Pomona, CA.
The current sanctuary, built in the 1950's with the 45 rank Abbott and Sieker pipe organ, the Baldwin grand piano, and its magnificent stained glass windows, offers one of the finest settings for worship in the Inland Valley.
We believe that God's primary purpose for Trinity UMC is to develop a spiritual fire that will enable us to reach out to the community, nation, and world. Therefore, we should strengthen and nurture our church and our community adn encourage programs for youth, the unchurched, the homeless and ethnic groups newly entering our community."
We have been Partners in Ministry with the
Walk to Emmaus Southern California, Kairos Outside and Credo Recovery Ministry
and other groups in Pomona to provide resources and avenues
for all God's people to grow in faith, hope, and love.
