Who We Are

Trinity Anglican Church is a welcoming and lively yet traditional community of believers. As a congregation we have been worshiping in Bakersfield since 1879. We are rooted in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the historic faith of the church. Our worship is liturgical, because we believe that the steady rhythms of the liturgy can help form us as disciples of Jesus.

We believe that we grow in our faith best through relationships. Therefore, we are intentional about building community, especially in Small Groups. We grieve the loneliness that more and more people experience in our modern culture and seek to get people plugged into meaningful relationships.

We are committed to serving the wider community--including especially those less fortunate. Many of our members are involved in service through prison and life-recovery ministries, elderly care, and homeless ministries. 

All of this can be summarized in our Vision statement: We are growing as disciples of Jesus Christ through worship, learning, fellowship and outreach.

What We Believe

  • We are Biblical: The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the revealed and authoritative Word of God
  • We are Credal: The Nicene Creed is the sufficient statement of the Christian faith
  • We are Anglican: The 39 Articles embody the historic Anglican confession of faith
  • We are Sacramental: We affirm the necessity of the two Sacraments ordained by Jesus: Baptism and Holy Communion; and we recognize the Church's five additional sacramental rites of Confirmation, Ordination, Unction, Confession, and Holy Matrimony
  • We are under Authority: We hold to the historic succession of bishops, and are under the godly leadership of Bishop Eric V. Menees and the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin
