The Episcopal Church

The Episcopal Church is part of the reformed tradition but directly connected with the early Christian church. We are bound together by our belief that the Holy Scriptures contain all things necessary to salvation. We believe that the Bible is the way to know God through Jesus Christ, and that by listening to the stories that connect us to Jesus, we can discover God’s hope in the saving presence of His Son.  Read more about the Episcopal Church at You can learn more about the Anglican Communion here, and more about the Provinces of the Episcopal Church here.
