We are a welcoming, friendly, family of Christians who embrace those who have never been to church, those who are returning after time away, and those from other faith traditions. All are welcome here: God loves and accepts you as you are and so do we.
We are part of :
The Episcopal Church, U.S.A.: http://www.episcopalchurch.org
“Being a Christian is not essentially about joining a church or being a nice person, but about following in the footsteps of Jesus, taking his teachings seriously, letting his Spirit take the lead in our lives, and in so doing helping to change the world from our nightmare into God’s dream.” ― Presiding Bishop Michael Curry
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with The Church of England and The Scottish Episcopal Church and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
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 the church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you- no exceptions!
