What We Believe

What We Believe

The Episcopal Church believes in the ancient statement of faith called the Nicene Creed.

We believe that the Bible reveals God to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit and that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, lived among us as a human being, Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus was both fully human and fully divine. He came to us out of the eternal love of God, and through God's love, he offers us resurrection and eternal, abundant life.

Episcopalians believe that God inspired the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. We believe the Bible contains all things necessary to salvation -- it reveals to us the great truths God wants us to know, and there are no secrets outside of the Bible that we need to learn for salvation. We believe that Scripture always requires interpretation. God has given us a mind, and wants us to use it, as we work to interpret, understand, and apply the stories in the Bible to our lives in the 21st century.

We believe the overriding message of the Bible is the Good News of God's love for us, of the life, death, and resurrection of God's Son, Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Spirit's promise of eternal and abundant life in Christ.

Because God has loved us, we are also called to love one another. In Christ, we live transformed lives, and the love he gives us allows us to work toward the transformation of this world. We believe that God's will is that this world should become a place of healing, wholeness, and peace.
