All are truly welcome at Travis Park Church!
Established in 1846, our church is grounded in history and vision. Today, the people of Travis Park Church continue seeking to make the world a better place through transformation of self and community. We serve and learn as siblings from all walks of life: rich and poor, housed and homeless, gay and straight, black and brown and white, secular and sacred, PhD and GED. The people of Travis Park Church seek to live and love as God does: passionately and unconditionally. God calls us on a journey forward, to break down the walls of prejudice, and to embrace all our brothers and sisters.
Travis Park’s commitment to justice means our congregation strives to remove political, cultural, and societal barriers both in the church and community that prevent people from being who God created them to be. This commitment is not based in anybody’s idea of political correctness, but in the actions and teachings of Jesus. The closer our lives mirror his life, the more available we are to experience and become God’s new creation.
Travis Park Church is affiliated with the Reconciling Ministries Network, a group of congregations and groups worldwide which have adopted statements welcoming people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
