Our Mission is to Feed and be Fed in the Love and Works of Jesus Christ.

All are Welcome!

Who We Are

We are Episcopalians.

We are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

The Episcopal Church has members in the United States, and around the world. It is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, and traces its heritage to the beginnings of Christianity. Our liturgy retains ancient structure and traditions and is celebrated in many languages.


We Believe...

  • In Baptism we are all made one family, sons and daughters of God.  Our sins are forgiven and we have the promise of eternal life. 
  • In the Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion, The Lord's Supper, or the Mass) we share the Body and Blood of Christ and receive forgiveness, love, encouragement and and strength.  It is a sacrament of unity, in which we are made one with God and one with each other.

All of God's Children are Welcome at God's Table

We Strive...

  • to love our neighbors as ourselves and respect the dignity of every person.
  • to seek, receive and offer forgiveness.
  • to show our faith in our lives, our actions and our priorities.

We Celebrate...

  • our unity in Christ while honoring our differences, always putting the work of love before uniformity of opinion.

You are welcome to find a spiritual home in the Episcopal Church.

Our Faith

Our faith calls us into

Worship, Service, Learning and Fellowship

What is the Holy Eucharist?

What is Baptism?

What can I expect at your service?

Our Faith is like a three-legged stool.

We rely on Scripture, Tradition and Reason.

Scripture: We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Word of God and contain all things necessary to salvation.

Tradition: 2,000 years of Christian life and worship have given us understanding, wisdom and truth. Our tradition should be ever growing and evolving.

Reason: God gave us intellect, reason and free will. Every one of us is called to use these gifts to explore, serve and grow closer to God.
