We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
Established in 1871, St. Luke’s grew as an Episcopal community of faith with the leadership of the Reverend Benjamin B. Babbitt and Bishop William Howe.
We are a vibrant community, bringing together people of many different backgrounds, ages and interests.
Our worship is participatory. Our liturgy involves our Priest and people communally participating through the sacraments; reflecting praise, thanksgiving, remembrance, supplication and repentance. Guidance is found in The Book of Common Prayer. (www.bcponline.org)
