The Episcopal Church

 

Our Traditions

The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ.

The Episcopal Church is descended from the Church of England and a member of the 70-million-member worldwide Anglican Communion. Each national church in the worldwide Anglican Communion is autonomous, bound only by common history and traditions. There is no Pope, no central teaching authority.

The American church was established in 1785. Many of America’s founders, including Washington and Jefferson, were Episcopalians.

The best way to learn about the Episcopal Church is to become a part of it. Come and Grow!
