Discover the Episcopal Church in Central New York
The Episcopal Diocese of Central New York is a community of 12,000 faithful Episcopalians in 88 congregations, following Jesus and reaching out to our neighbors.
We are glad you have found us, and we hope we’ll have a chance to welcome you!
What We Believe
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We 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.
We believe that God loves you–no exceptions.
Who We Are
We are followers of Jesus: noisy infants, curious teens, busy professionals and parents, steadfast seniors, wise elders.
We have gifts to share and we seek God’s gifts in our neighbors and visitors.
We’re not perfect, and we don’t expect you to be.
We trust in God’s love, and we do our best to share that love.
