While we have priests and Deacons, our services are the people’s work. "Protestant, yet Catholic" we retain an ancient structure and tradition, but we are as modern as today. Here, Holy Communion may be received by all baptized Christians; you don’t have to be a member of the Episcopal Church.
A sacramental community, we also hold that Scripture is the revealed word of God, and that they “contain all things necessary for salvation.” Episcopalians trust that this revealed word is best interpreted within the community of the Church, advised by tradition, reason, and the ongoing guidance of the Holy Spirit.
We know that life can be tough. Everyone stumbles. We believe in 2nd chances, the forgiveness of sin, and life everlasting. Healing can begin at the communion rail.
We value and support marriage and family. We love kids!
Marriage is intended to be lifelong and monogamous, but we know that life happens, and that grace remains after divorce. The sacraments are available to those who have been divorced … indeed after all that who doesn’t need the Body of Circuit?
We are a people united in building the Kingdom of God. We celebrate and cherish our unity in Christ, even while we honor our differences. The work of spreading God’s love is our first and primary purpose.
