The Episcopal Church has a unique place in the spectrum of Christian experience. Our worship is rooted in Scripture, with vibrant expression of prayer, music, sacrament, and word. Episcopalians have long stood for service to the wider community, and we express our faith in outreach and social concern—we try to “walk the talk” of Jesus’ teachings.
We are known for asking good questions rather than providing simple answers for complex issues. And we are known for our inclusiveness; we recognize that Christ’s banquet is large enough to include every person.
What We Believe
We believe in a God who loves us—the Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer—who created the universe, who in Jesus Christ has healed the human condition of fear, estrangement, and death, and who sustains each of us through love and grace.
The four cornerstones of our faith are:
Scripture: we are not biblical literalists, but we know that the “word of God” is living and active, and speaks to both heart and mind;
Reason: we believe that we are called to think carefully in our search for understanding and truth;
Tradition: we believe that we have much to learn from those who have preceded us;
Experience: we believe we are called to reflect upon the experience of everyday life as an ongoing journey of faith.
If this description of our theology is interesting, please join us on Sundays at St. Andrews, St. John’s, or St. Mark’s. It will be great to see you!
