We have faith in following the footsteps of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection, saved us.
We have a heritage of consideration, seeking to tell and represent God’s affection for each individual; ladies and men fill in as religious administrators, clerics, and elders in our congregation. Laypeople and ministry participate as pioneers at all levels of our congregation. Administration is a blessing from God and can be communicated by all individuals in our congregation.
The Bible is of exceptional significance to Episcopal worship; during a Sunday service, the children of God will, for the most part, hear at least three readings from Scripture, and a significant part of the ceremony from The Book of Common Prayer which depends plainly on the Biblical writings. As indicated by the Catechism, “We comprehend the importance of the Bible by the assistance of the Holy Spirit who manages the Church in the genuine understanding of the Scriptures”
Among others, Baptism and the Eucharist (or Holy Communion) are the two incredible holy sacraments given by Christ to his Church.
On account of Baptism, the outward and obvious sign is water, in which the individual is purified through the water in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit; the internal and spiritual grace with Christ in his death and resurrection, birth into God’s family the Church, absolution of sins, and new life in the Holy Spirit. On account of the Eucharist, the outward and noticeable sign is bread and wine. The internal and spiritual grace is the Body and Blood of Christ given to his people and accepted by faith.
Aside from these two, there are other ordinances in our walk of faith that can fill in as a means of grace. These include:
- Holy Orders
- Anointing of the Sick
