What is the Episcopal Church?
Christ Church is an Episcopal Church. As Episcopalians we do not claim to be a distinct version of Christianity, but a distinct way of being a “Mere Christian,” at the same time reformed, catholic, apostolic, biblical, evangelical, faithful to the creeds, liturgical and Spirit-filled. We belong to a world-wide Anglican Communion, constituting the third largest Christian body globally.
The Episcopal church welcomes all who worship Jesus Christ, in 111 dioceses and regional areas in 17 nations. Our Presiding Bishop Michael Curry (pictured left – well known for his sermon at the Royal Wedding in 2018) is the 27th Presiding Bishop and Primate of the Episcopal chruch and describes us as believers in a “loving, liberating and life-giving God” who follow the teachings of Jesus Christ whose live, death and resurrection changed the world.
