Our mission is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
The Episcopal Church is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity. Our faith is grounded in sacred Scripture, enriched by historic tradition, and enlightened by modern reasoning. Our liturgy retains ancient traditions and is celebrated in many languages.
We have congregations in the United States, as well as in Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Haiti, Honduras, Micronesia, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, and the Virgin Islands.
We are a diverse community unified by four affirmations:
- The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God.
- The ancient Nicene Creed is a sufficient statement of faith.
- The sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist as integral to our identity.
- Our Bishops are our Chief Pastors and Teachers.
All other subjects we hold to be a matter of personal opinion, worthy of reasoned and respectful conversation but not cause for division.
We welcome everyone into full participation in our church, regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, relationship status, and physical ability. All are invited to consider lay and ordained ministry opportunities.
