As Episcopalians, we follow Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior.
We believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe God is
active in our everyday lives through the power of the Holy Spirit.
The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with
God and with each other in Christ. The Church pursues its mission
as it prays and worships, proclaims the gospel, and promotes
justice, peace and love. The Church carries out its mission through
the ministry of all its members.
We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.
We believe the Holy Scriptures are the revealed Word of God. In
worship we unite ourselves with one another to acknowledge the
holiness of God, to hear God's Word, to offer prayer and praise,
and to celebrate the Sacraments. The Celebration of Holy Eucharist
is the central act of worship in accordance with Jesus' command to
His disciples. Holy Communion may be received by all baptized
Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.
The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion
with 70 million members in 164 countries. The word
"Episcopal" refers to government by bishops. The historic
episcopate continues the work of the first apostles in the Church,
guarding the faith, unity and discipline of the Church. Both men
and women, including those who are married, are eligible for
ordination as deacons, priests and bishops.
We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the
dignity of every person. We welcome all to find a spiritual home in
the Episcopal Church.
