We are a Diocese within the Universal Body of Christ the one holy catholic and apostolic church
We are a Convergence Diocese of Spirit, Word, and Sacrament
We are a Diocese with The CEEC. The Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches is a worldwide Christian Convergent Communion, which blends the Evangelical, Charismatic, and Sacramental streams of the Christian faith. We aim to see a communion of churches that are unified by the essentials of the faith, connecting to the ancient, and pressing forward toward the future; while hearing what God is saying today.
Statement on Marriage and Human Sexuality
In Matthew 19 Jesus Christ defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman. A Christian sexual ethic is expressed through celibacy in singleness or faithfulness in marriage between one woman and one man.”
We affirm that the 66 books of The Bible are inspired by God, and that they are infallible for all matters of Christian faith and practice.
The Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral
Our diocese is unified in our reception of
1. The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the revealed Word of God.
2. The Nicene Creed as the sufficient statement of the Christian Faith.
3. The two Sacraments,--Baptism and the Supper of the Lord,--ministered with unfailing use of Christ's words of institution and of the elements ordained by Him.
4. The Historic Episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of its administration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples called of God into the unity of His Church.
Statement on the Sanctity of Human Life
God, and not people, is the creator of human life. The unjustified taking of life is sinful. Therefore, all members and Clergy are called to promote and respect the sanctity of every human life from conception to natural death.
