What We Believe

We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in following Jesus, whose life, death, and resurrection are saving and transforming 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.
