What We Believe
What We Believe
We believe that the Bible reveals God to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Son of God, Jesus Christ, lived among us and was both fully human and fully divine. He came to us out of the love of God, and through God, offers us resurrection and eternal life.
We believe that God inspired the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. The Bible contains all things necessary for salvation and reveals to us the truths God wants us to know. We believe that Scripture always requires interpretation. God has given us a mind, and wants us to use it, as we work to interpret, understand and apply the lessons in the Bible to our lives in our times. We understand the message of the Bible is the great news of God's love for us.
Because God has loved us, we are also called to love one another. Through Christ we live transformed lives. His love allows us to work toward the transformation of this world. We believe God's will is that this world should become a place of healing, wholeness and peace.
Whether you are coming from an liturgical background, another faith tradition, or no regular church experience at all, we invite you to experience the community and tradition of Episcopal worship.
About The Episcopal Church
As Episcopalians, we believe in a loving, liberating and life-giving God. He is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As individuals and a community, we strive to live by the message of Christ: there are no outcasts and all are welcome. We are a sacramental and service-oriented church. We believe in thoughtful engagement with Scripture, discernment, tradition and our Baptismal covenant. We seek to become the transformed people God calls us to be.
Our path is sometimes described as a middle way, between Catholic and Protestant traditions. The national Episcopal Church is a member of the Anglican Communion, the worldwide family of churches that trace their roots to the Church of England.
The Episcopal Church observes the ancient statement of faith called the Nicene Creed.
