Historic Trinity has been sharing the love of Jesus in downtown Detroit since 1850. As the Mother Church of Detroit Lutheranism, we are blessed to be an ecclesiastical, cultural, community resource and gathering place for Metro Detroit. Historic Trinity is a National, State, and Local historical designated site. The uniqueness of our downtown location, the breathtaking beauty of our sanctuary and our worship services distinguish us as a destination church.

We are a proud neighbor in the Historic Eastern Market District. We provide secure and lighted off street parking, easy access only two blocks from I-75 Exit 51b, air-conditioned facilities, and complete handicap accessibility.

“The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,” and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.”

Romans 13:9-10
