“Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:11
We believe in God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Episcopalians believe God gives life, liberations, and love to all.
We’re descendants of and partners with the Scottish Episcopal Church and the Church of England, also know as the Anglican Church. The Episcopal Church is the third largest Christian organization in the world.
Episcopalians have a long history of inclusion.
We aspire to love and respect every human, just as God does. Women, men, people of color, and those that identify as LGBT, both serve and worship freely. Our mission is to serve all of those in need of the most care and attention.
“Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation.”
– The 39 Articles, a 1536 foundational document of Anglican theology
Like all Christians, the bible is the foundational text to Episcopal worship. During Sunday services, there are usually at least three Scripture readings. The Book of Common Prayer, a collection of Episcopal prayers and services, is explicitly based on Biblical texts.
THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER
The Book of Common Prayer contains devotional teachings, resources for both individuals and congregations, and is useful tool to the beginner and seasoned Episcopalian. The prayer book was most recently revised in 1979 and teaches our prayers, liturgies, theological documents, and more.
