We believe in One God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Worship is at the center of our common life. Trinity Church is a community of people who believe the good news of God, that God is revealed in Jesus Christ. We believe that God gave himself to the world as a gift in sending Jesus of Nazareth: one who self-sacrificially loved others to the point of death, and whom God raised from the dead, overcoming the powers of evil, ugliness, and hatred. In the risen Jesus, God has bestowed on us goodness, beauty and love. In Jesus, we learn that God is love and that we are beloved of God. Our worship each week is a celebration and thanksgiving for God's love for us, and our attempt to practice the love that Jesus showed us.
We share in a two thousand year old tradition of Christian "liturgy," a word which literally means "public service." Liturgical Christian worship invites each person to be a participant and not a mere spectator, to be wholly engaged in worship with all of the senses. At Trinity, you will see people bowing or kneeling, making the sign of the cross, standing to sing or pray, and approaching the altar to receive bread and wine. Our liturgy follows the Book of Common Prayer: we sing hymns, pray, listen to the reading of Scripture and a sermon, recite the central mystery of Christian faith as expressed in the Nicene Creed, and offer to God a sacrifice in the form of praise and thanksgiving in a communion meal with God and one another, which we call the Eucharist.
