The Episcopal Church is all about basic Christianity. Our common worship of God in and through Jesus is what brings us together. Following Jesus is at the root of all we do.
The Episcopal Church is one among many expressions of the Christian Church that traces its roots back to the earliest followers of Jesus. Like a “bucket brigade” the Church passes on the living water of this faith down through the ages. In this way each generation of Jesus’ followers learns, then passes on teachings and practices that help us know and to follow God, based on what Jesus said, taught and did.
The Church has found that God is best known through reading and telling stories from scripture, by sharing in Jesus’ table fellowship of bread and wine, in the baptismal waters of new birth, and through people who take special care of the life and traditions of the church.
The Episcopal Church is a part of the Anglican Communion, a large family of churches around the world that trace their faith history along the same pathways back through the early church in England.
Among these, The Episcopal Church traces its faith history back through the very beginnings of the United States. And, beyond that, as a part of the Anglican Communion, it is connected to the long history of the church in England which, in turn, is tied to the Christianity of Europe and from there, to the earliest Jesus-followers in Jerusalem.
Remembering all these connections to the faith through those who have gone before us helps us realize that our faith in Jesus is not our own. It is a gift given to us by God who has inspired and enabled a generation in each age to pass on this devotion and love for God through the life and teachings of Jesus.
