About the Episcopal Church…


The Episcopal Church is a fellowship within the one holy catholic and apostolic church, propagating the faith as set forward in the “Book of Common Prayer.” 



It is bound together not by a central authority, but a mutual loyalty sustained by the common counsel of the Bishops in conference.



The Episcopal Church’s faith and order are those of the earliest undivided Christian Church. Its tradition is a blending of evangelical and catholic (Eastern and Western) Christianity in which Christians of both traditions may find a home.
