Mission Statement

We are a welcoming and diverse community of faith that seeks to follow the way of Jesus Christ by serving and worshipping God.

Our beliefs:

∙     Worshipping in the love of Christ’s teachings and the Episcopal tradition reveals God more clearly so that we understand His call to us and live a life of faith.

∙     Every spiritual journey is unique and nurtured by curiosity about God and the nature of faith.

∙     We show our love of Jesus through outreach to the world around us.

∙     Stewardship, the nurturing of our earth and the sharing of our resources and gifts, is an essential part of who we are.

∙     An awareness of critical issues inspires us to align ourselves with the teachings of Jesus.

∙     Opportunities for fellowship strengthen the bonds of a community.

∙     Christian education at all ages deepens our relationship with God.

Worshiping and Serving Since 1873
