Our story 

In 1987, being moved by the Spirit of God, a group of 15 people began gathering in Sioux Falls, SD to form what would be Abiding Savior Free Lutheran Church. By God's grace, they became a thriving congregation passionate about God's Word, the proclamation of the gospel, reaching the lost, and helping believers mature in their faith. In 2006 they planted a new church across town (Living Word Free Lutheran Church) and in 2015 planted another church in Rapid City, SD (Shiloh Free Lutheran Church). It was during this time that Pastor Matthew Ballmann was called to serve at Abiding Savior and able to be part of the leadership team that led to the planting of Shiloh. Throughout that time, the Lord was stirring in his and his wife's heart to plant another church. After prayerfully considering several locations around the country, they felt led back to Texas (their home state) to minister to the people of San Antonio. They are excited to be part of what God is doing in forming Trinity San Antonio.  Their heart is to see individuals come to a deeper understanding of God’s incredible grace, experience the life that only Christ can offer, and live in the freedom of the gospel and love towards others that only the Spirit can give. We invite you to join the story God is writing in the forming of this new faith community.
