It doesn’t matter what you do or don’t believe; you are welcome at Trinity Church on Sunday morning and for all church activities. We are a safe and respectful community, and we will support you on your personal faith journey.
We believe God is love, God loves us, and God wants us to love. Every Sunday we start our service with Jesus’ teaching known as “the Summary of the Law” (Matthew 22:37-40):
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
We believe that faithful living means coming to a deeper understanding of God, to embrace these two commandments, and to live our lives according to them.
Episcopalians gather to pray and worship using the Book of Common Prayer. Contained in the Prayer Book is the Nicene Creed, a 2000-year-old statement of belief shared by many Christian denominations and summarizes what The Episcopal Church teaches about God.
The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
Of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
