Trinity is a member of The Episcopal Church (TEC) of the United States. It is a church that is part of the Body of Christ and sharing the Good News of Jesus. The denomination dates to the founding of this country and stems from the Anglican Church in England. Episcopalians, and all Anglican churches around the world, frame worship through The Book of Common Prayer, which contains orders for worship, prayers, psalms, and other texts. We believe in one God who created, redeemed, and sustains the world and believe in a risen Lord, Jesus Christ. Our faith is outlined in the Apostle's creed, the Nicene creed and in more detail in what is called a catechism in our Book of Common Prayer. We believe authority comes from scripture, reason, and tradition, with scripture being the foundation of all belief for us. We sustain beliefs and practices that date early in the church, with ordained ministers who are deacons, priests and bishops, but believe firmly in the ministry of all the baptized. Ministry is of and for all persons; ordained ministry in the church is without regard to race, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation or gender identity, age, or disability. For Episcopalians worship is the center of how we practice our faith, with continuing engagement with the word and putting our faith to work in the world. Trinity Denison has been present since the late 1800's, with the building dating to 1876. Over the years, of course, many things have changed and the Trinity of today is open to all desiring a spiritual home and a community that seeks to serve those who may feel marginalized. We also want to be a place where immigrants from all over may feel welcome and a place where are LGBT brothers and sisters may feel safe and valued.
