The Episcopal Church

What do Episcopalians believe? What is our mission? Who are the Church’s ministers and what do we do?

Episcopalians are a branch of Christianity which is part of the movement which Jesus began over 2,000 years ago. We believe in a loving, liberating, life-giving God. Our journey as Christians begins with our baptisms and we are spiritually nourished through the Eucharist. Our faith is summarized through the Catechism and Creeds. Our Baptismal Covenant shapes our lives as they are promises made to God. We are informed and guided by God’s Word in The Holy Bible and the gifts God has given us through our tradition and ability to reason as the Holy Spirit continues to inspire us.

Our mission is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ as it prays and worships, proclaims the Gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love. The church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members (laity, bishops, priests, and deacons).
