Making Jesus Christ supreme in all things and for all peoples.

Trinity Evangelical Free Church (TEFC) is a faith community in the Upper Valley of Vermont whose spiritual heritage in New England reaches back to 1785 when it was incorporated as the First Baptist Church of Windsor. In 1974 Trinity was renamed after being associated with the Evangelical Free Church of America.

Our church family desires to glorify God by helping people to know Jesus personally, to follow Him completely and to make Him know broadly

  • In non-essentials: Liberty
  • In all things: Charity
