Who We Are

"Inspired by Christ, Trinity Episcopal Church strives to love our neighbors, do justice, and walk humbly with God."


'Inspired by Christ'

Jesus preached “God’s reign is at hand1,” and his life reveals a God who is inclusive, compassionate, healing, forgiving and generous. Living into Jesus’ example Trinity Church strives to:

'Love our Neighbors'

“If it’s not about love, it’s not about God.2” Self-sacrificial love is the foundation of everything we do as Jesus calls us to “Love one another as I have loved you.3” Trinity is committed to sharing God’s love with ALL people in order to restore “unity with God and each other in Christ.4

'Do Justice'

God’s dream for the world includes transforming racial5, social, economic and political injustice so that “justice rolls down like waters6” Christ’s disciples aspire to “bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners.7

'Walk Humbly with God'

“All who exalt themselves will be humbled, all who humble themselves will be exalted.8” The way of the cross is the way of life and openness to God’s unfolding version of the world requires humility. We practice this virtue when we “Put on then, as God's chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.9
