The Episcopal Church is a branch of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ with his Apostles. It is part of a world wide fellowship called the Anglican Communion, with its roots in the Church of England.
It is a universal or catholic church, continuing in the teaching, fellowship, sacramental worship and prayers according to the Apostolic tradition. It is a church of the Protestant Reformation, firmly rooted on the foundation of Holy Scripture.
It is a church which proclaims Christ crucified and resurrected. It is a church which strives to bring the grace and hope of the Gospel to every area of life.
As members of the Church, we are all ministers of the Gospel: representing Christ to this broken world, bearing witness to his love, leading others to faith, and carrying out the work of reconciliation.
