First and foremost....

As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, & we believe in the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.  

 

The Episcopal Church has members in the United States and the territory of Puerto Rico; and also in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Venezuela, Curacao, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Taiwan, and the Virgin Islands.

 

  • We strive to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.

  • The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity.

  • Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.

  • Both men and women, including those who are married, are eligible for ordination as deacons, priests, and bishops.

  • We believe in the amendment of life, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting.

  • Lay people exercise a vital role in the governance and ministry of our church.

  • Holy Communion may be received by all baptized Christians, not only members of the Episcopal Church.

  • We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.

  • We affirm that committed relationships are lifelong and monogamous.

  • Episcopalians also recognize that there is grace after divorce and do not deny the sacraments to those who have been divorced.

  • We affirm that issues such as birth control are matters of personal informed conscience.

  • We celebrate our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.

  • All are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.
