About Us


We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

Led by Christ – Helping, Teaching, Loving, Connecting
Renewed by God’s Grace and Welcoming to All, the Holy Spirit Inspires us to Worship, Grow in Faith, and Equip Disciples for Service that All may Know Christ's Love. 

We Confess
the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.

We Believe

Jesus Christ is the Word ​of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God fashions a new creation.

The proclamation of God's message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and the work of Jesus Christ.

The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God. Inspired by God's Spirit speaking through their authors, they record and announce God's revelation centering in Jesus Christ. Through them God's Spirit speaks to us to create and sustain Christian service in the world.

The Church is a people created by God in Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, called and sent to bear witness to God's creative, redeeming, and sanctifying activity in the world.

Our History

Our congregation was organized on September 22, 1876 by twenty-seven charter members meeting in the Hickory City Hall. Rev. Dr. A.J. Fox was our first pastor. Since that time 26 pastors and 7 interns have served our congregation. Holy Trinity was initially housed in a small white wooden church in Hickory.
