What We Believe
As Episcopalians, we believe in a God of love, a God of second chances, a God that is present in the world. We believe in the Father who created all things at the beginning of time; the Son, Jesus Christ, who redeems us through his life, death, and resurrection; and in the Holy Spirit who sustains us.
We also believe the Holy Scriptures are the revealed word of God, written by human beings under the inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible contains all things necessary for salvation.
We believe in the church as the body of Christ, one that is holy, universal, and apostolic, continuing the teachings of Jesus through the apostles to this day. The Nicene Creed and the Apostles’ Creed, found in the Book of Common Prayer and often recited in our liturgy, outline our beliefs.
If you’d like to know more about what we believe as Episcopalians check out our outline of faith, known as the Catechism, in the Book of Common Prayer.
