Who are Episcopalians?
As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and believe in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Episcopal Church has members in many parts of the world.
We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.
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.
We welcome men and women, married or celibate, to be ordained as deacons, priests, and bishops.
We believe in the forgiveness of sin and life everlasting.
Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our Church.
All baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church, may receive Holy Communion.
We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.
We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous. Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced.
We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience.
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.
As a priest once said:
God loves you and there is not a thing you can do to change that!
Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We advocate for those who need our help. Even a little help goes a long way.
That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world. Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us. A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
