The Episcopal Church is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, with 70 million members in 163 countries, bound together by our belief that Holy Scripture contains the very core of all Christian faith. Through the many ancient and modern stories that connect us to Jesus and his teachings, we discover daily God’s hope and call to us in our life together.
The Book of Common Prayer can be complicated even for lifelong Episcopalians and seem even more bewildering for visitors and newcomers. Although this is brief, we hope to answer some of the questions you may have and make worship easier for you.
In the Episcopal Church we take part in certain regular acts of worship. These are called sacraments or reenactments of Christ’s ministries on earth. The two primary sacraments are Baptism and Holy Communion.
Scripture, Tradition and Reason:
In the Episcopal Church, we are called to live out our faith on a daily basis, whether we are at home, school, work or recreation. The cornerstones of our faith are Scripture, tradition and reason.
The Creeds are statements that contain a summary of our basic beliefs. In the Episcopal Church, we say both the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed in our worship. Because we are a community of faith, we openly declare our beliefs and in this way unite ourselves to Christians in the past, present and future.
