We confess and proclaim Jesus Christ as the Son of God and the Risen Lord and Savior of all the world.
We believe that Jesus, by His crucifixion, resurrection, and grace, has freely given forgiveness, salvation, and eternal life to all those who come to Him in repentance, put their faith in Him, and call upon His Name.
We believe that the Bible is the Holy Word of God, that it is inspired by the Holy Spirit, that it contains all things necessary for salvation, and that it is the supreme source and authority of truth and wisdom for our faith, life, and worship.
We believe and hold the faith proclaimed by the faithful orthodox churches of historic Christianity as set forth in the words of the Nicene Creed and the Apostles’ Creed.
We affirm the theology of the Book of Common Prayer and the historical documents of the Christian Church and the Anglican Communion contained in the Prayer Book.
We believe we are to live out the commandment and Great Commission of Jesus to love others as He loves us by sacrificially serving and unconditionally loving all people, while baptizing and making disciples of all people, in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Baptism is a ritual of inclusion and belonging that indicates our desire to enter into a relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church. We baptize adults and infants in the Episcopal Church on the belief that God’s love extends to everyone regardless of their age.
Also known as the Lord’s Supper, or Holy Communion, the Eucharist is “the sacrament commanded by Christ for the continual remembrance of his life, death, and resurrection until his coming again.” We offer Holy Eucharist at each of the principal services every Sunday.
In Confirmation, a baptized Christian makes “a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.”
Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which two people enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows.
