Our Beliefs

The Lord be with you.
And also with you

God is with us – all of us. As Episcopalians, this reminder is woven throughout our worship services and compels us into lives of faithful action in our communities and worlds, seeking and serving the image of God that is found in every person.

God loves you - exactly as you are, no exceptions.

As members of The Episcopal Church, our worship is grounded in the liturgies* found in the Book of Common Prayer (BCP). No matter what church you find yourself in, this red book greets you with a wealth of devotional resources and information about the Sacraments of our common spiritual life.

The focal point of our worship services is the Holy Eucharist (also called Mass, Communion, or the Lord’s Table). In this Sacrament*, we come together as the family of God to receive the bread and wine, acknowledging our unity with God and each other, and anchoring ourselves in the holy love that strengthens and nourishes us.

We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

The Episcopal Church 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.
