What We Believe
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
We believe in following the teaching of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection save the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being: women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation. We strive to live into our baptismal covenant, especially the question, "Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?" And we reply, "l with God's help."
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
