As a branch of Christianity,
we can trace our roots back to the Day of
Pentecost in the Book of Acts ultimately.
Anglican Christianity consists of churches
with historical ties to the Church of
England. The Episcopal Church is the
American Branch of the worldwide Anglican
Communion. In terms of faith, we emphasize
the importance of the three-legged stool:
Scriptures, Tradition, and Reason. We are
truly the "via media" or "middle way"
between Protestantism and Catholicism. We
are a big tent church, meaning that there
is a place for everyone. We are the Church
that St. Paul described in 1 Corinthians
As it is, there are many members, yet one
body. 21The eye cannot say to the hand, 'I
have no need of you', nor again the head
to the feet, 'I have no need of you.'
We are a Church that believes in diversity
