We join with Christians all over the world in honoring one God, made known as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe and trust that God created and sustains the world in love. We believe and trust that God seeks us out to make his loving purposes known. We believe and trust that God has revealed himself in creation itself, in the pages of the Bible, and most especially in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. And God continues to make himself known to each of us through the work of the Holy Spirit.
Episcopalians are the heirs of an ancient faith, tracing our lineage back through the Church of England and the Western Catholic Church, all the way back to the earliest days of Christianity. We hold the one Faith revealed in Holy Scriptures, and defined in the Creeds and Ecumenical Councils of the early church. Many of our prayers and traditions date from these ancient sources, connecting us with our forebears in faith. Our life together is guided and shaped by The Book of Common Prayer, first published in 1549 and most recently revised in 1979, which contains our liturgies, prayers, theological documents, and much more.
