Our Beliefs

  • We are Christian in our beliefs and Jesus Christ is at the center of our faith.

  • We believe in God who has created us, Jesus who has redeemed us and in the Holy Spirit who sustains us in this life.

  • We are neither Protestant nor Catholic.  

  • We believe in the via media (the middle way), recognizing that through our baptisms we are united with one another and with God, despite our differences.  We do not all have to think alike.  We embrace diversity as a blessing from God.  

  • As Episcopalians we honor scripture, reason and tradition as the three-legged stool on which our faith is made relevant and sustained.

  • We follow the ways of Jesus' teachings and seek to be faithful in our discipleship, not only worshipping Jesus but also following his example set forth in the Holy Scriptures.  

  • We believe that the Holy Scriptures hold all things necessary for our salvation.

  • Worship is central to our faith and during the principle service each Sunday morning we celebrate the liturgy of Word and Table, hearing the Word of God read and proclaimed and participating in the service of Holy Communion (receiving the bread and wine/ the body and blood of Jesus Christ) where all who desire a closer relationship with God in Christ are welcome.  

  • We believe that in the breaking of the bread and drinking of the cup, Jesus is real and present to us.

  • We believe in One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church--a Universal Christian Church that is rooted in the succession of Apostles to our present day and the ministries of Bishops, Priests and Deacons who are consecrated to lead the church together with the laity.

  • We believe that all people are uniquely and wonderfully created and we seek to respect the dignity of every human life.

  • We believe that all persons are called and equipped for ministry in the world and seek to foster an environment that allows people to be empowered to actualize their full potential for Christian life.
