As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord,
and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Episcopal
Church has members in the United States, as well as in Colombia,
the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany,
Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Puerto Rico,
Taiwan, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands.
We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the
dignity of every person. We believe in amendment of life, the
forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.
The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican
Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of
Christianity. Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions
and is celebrated in many languages. Both men and women, including
those who are married, are eligible for ordination as deacons,
priests and bishops. Lay people exercise a vital role in the
governance and ministry of our church.
We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences,
always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion. All
are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
