What We Believe

What We Believe

It is said that, “If you want to know what Episcopalians believe, come and worship with them.” What you will hear and see is that we are followers of Jesus Christ, and both our worship and our mission are in Christ’s name.

We believe that God is the loving and purposeful creator of the universe. We believe that in Jesus Christ, God gave a singularly lavish gift to humankind. We believe that in Christ, God makes real the promise of reconciliation of all. We trust that the Church is to be the reality of that reconciling love in the world, and therefore the Church is to welcome all persons into Christ’s redeeming love. We believe that the Holy Spirit of God is active and alive today, drawing us deeper in our faith and calling us to make a difference in our world.

We believe that there are no easy answers. We believe that getting the questions right takes time and help, and that the right questions are themselves a gift. We believe we are to value scripture, tradition, and our ability to reason equally, as we strive to discern God’s will for ourselves and our community.

We believe that regular worship and prayer in community with others really changes lives.

We believe we are called to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves. We believe we are called to strive for justice and peace among all people, and to respect the dignity of every human being.

It is a such a joyful privilege to invite you to join us on this journey toward faith and a meaningful relationship with God and to welcome you into our spiritual home. Thank you!
