About Us

Who We Are

Inspiring people wherever they are to live like Jesus wherever they go! Our core values come right out of the Bible and lead us to live authentic gospel-driven lives. We extend grace to others through acts of love and kindness. We desire to live as forgiven sinners, as broken people ministering to broken people. We see that every person bears the image of God and that God’s truth is given for us to be transformed and restored, mended and healed through faith in Jesus Christ.

“We’re far worse than we ever imagined, and far more loved than we could ever dream.” Tim Keller


What We Believe

What we believe impacts how we live our daily lives. Truth matters to us! So does living authentic, loving and others-directed lives. For more information on “What We Believe” please see our ARP Denominational Website and our doctrine summary in our Confessional Statement.


What To Expect

When you visit Tradewinds it is our desire that you encounter at least three things in worship: Celebration of who God Is and what He has done, Inspiration from God’s Perfect Word & Preparation for Living.

Tradewinds Church is committed to presenting God’s truth in a way that is creative, compelling, challenging, and culturally on target.  Click here to find out more about your Sunday Visit with us!

We are at The Music Center on the St. Pete/Gibbs Campus of St. Petersburg College.


Our Story

We are replanting our church, but our church as a community of believers has been around for 18 years. We are a church that is part of a larger church group that we like to call “one of the oldest church plants in America.” The Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church is one of the oldest denominations in America. Our denomination continues to plant new churches in this country while seeking to spread the Gospel around the world.


Lifeboat Groups

Finding your place in a new environment and surrounded by new people can be a little intimidating. Let us help you connect with others and grow in your faith as you discover the truth about Jesus. These small groups settings are a safe place to ask questions. Lifeboats may focus on a Bible Book Study or a current topic of interest. Groups meet in homes one evening each week in locations all over the city. To find out more: 727-337-2869 or email

The Good News

What is the Gospel?
It can be summarized in a sentence: The Gospel is the good news that Jesus Christ – who alone is the righteous Son of God – died and rose again for our sins; so that there is no longer any condemnation for those who believe, but only eternal life.
