How do we live our faith?

We work purposefully and diligently to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and in each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community.  The scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as well as the Book of Common Prayer, are our foundation of worship and beliefs. We share these beliefs and practices with all Episcopal churches, making us part of a large community which unites us in prayer and worship. Trinity Episcopal Church has a rich history and a long tradition of outreach and service assisting those in need.


We welcome and invite you to  join us in living your faith and ours.


About the Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church welcomes you —  we are a community of faith that seeks to respond to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in word and deed. The Episcopal Church is the Province of the Anglican Communion in the United States, Honduras, Taiwan, Colombia, Ecuador, Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, the British Virgin Islands and parts of Europe. As of 2010, it is a church of 2,057,292 baptized members making it the fifteenth largest Christian denomination in the U.S. In keeping with Anglican tradition and theology, the Episcopal Church considers itself "Protestant, yet Catholic." 


The Episcopal Church ordains women to the priesthood as well as the diaconate and the episcopate. The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church is the Right Reverend Michael Curry, the first African American to serve in this capacity.  The Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas is the Right Reverend Dean Wolfe.  Our diocesan headquarters are located in Topeka, KS.


The church was organized shortly after the American Revolution when it was forced to separate from the Church of England, as Church of England clergy were required to swear allegiance to the British monarch. It became, in the words of the 1990 report of the Archbishop of Canterbury's Group on the Episcopate, "the first Anglican Province outside the British Isles". 


The Episcopal Church was active in the Social Gospel movement of the late nineteenth century. Since the 1960s and 1970s, it has opposed the death penalty and supported the civil rights movement and affirmative action. Many of its leaders and priests marched along side civil rights demonstrators. 


We respect the dignity of all persons, regardless of national origin, race, gender, sexual orientation or age and welcome and encourage all to participate in all areas of parish life.
