What We Believe

Welcome to The Episcopal Church

As Episcopalians, we believe in and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.

The Episcopal Church embraces a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; people of all genders and sexual orientations serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy work together in leadership and governance.

Sunday Worship
St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church

The St. Aidan’s congregation, formed in 1955, is a diverse group of people who come from Episcopal and other faith traditions. In worship, we unite ourselves with others and with God through prayer and sacrament. Our worship encourages participation; and it incorporates elements that are both ancient and modern.

The Episcopal Church was founded in 1789 and was first called the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America. We are denominational descendants, and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church. While some practices can vary from place to place, worship is similar in most Episcopal churches.

At St. Aidan’s Episcopal Church, we believe that God loves you, with no exceptions.

Everyone is welcome to receive communion at the Lord’s Table. Children are encouraged to participate. Our communion bread is homemade, or you may ask for a gluten-free host. The wine is distributed both in individual glass cups and from the common chalice.
