WHAT WE BELIEVE

As Christians and as Episcopalians, we believe that every person is a child of God, created in the image of God. On that basis, we work to nurture and support one another, and anyone who comes through our red doors, in our journey of life.

We share the traditions of faith and order with the Church of England, from which the Episcopal Church emerged. As part of the Anglican Communion of which the Church of England is the “mother church,” we use the Book of Common Prayer to guide us in our worship services. And we rely on a “three-legged stool” of Scripture, tradition, and reason to guide us in our spiritual life.

We find the fullest expression of Christian faith in the Holy Scripture, the Creeds, the Sacraments—especially Baptism and Holy Communion, those sacraments that Christ commanded us to continue—and our lay and ordained ministers.

Most of all, at Calvary Episcopal Church, we encourage the integration of our faith with our daily life, proclaiming daily by word and example the Good News of God in Jesus Christ.

If you have any questions about the beliefs and ethos of the Episcopal Church or about Calvary Church in particular, you may contact the rector at the church office. We will be happy to talk with you!
