Our Mission (why we are together)
A welcoming Christ-centered community –
Seeking God’s will
Sharing God’s wisdom
Serving God’s people
The Mission of the Church Is the Mission of Christ.
As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer. We believe in amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting
As Trinity Episcopal Parish, we strive to share the Good News of God, to grow as Christian disciples, and to respond to the needs of the world in the power of the Holy Spirit. In this way we look to share hope and grace.
The Great Commission
Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. (Matthew 18:16-20)
The Great Commandment
You shall love the Lord your God with all heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and the great commandment. And the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:37-40; Mark 12:28-40; Luke 10:25-28)
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me. (Matthew 25:35)
- To continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers.

Five Marks of Mission:
The Episcopal Church of America identifies with the Five Marks of Mission that were developed by the Anglican Consultative Council. The Five Marks of Mission have given parishes and dioceses around the world a practical and memorable “checklist” for mission activities.
- To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
- To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To seek to transform unjust structures of society to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation
- To safeguard the integrity of creation and renew the life of the earth
All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
