Who We Are

The word “Epiphany" is from a Greek word meaning, “manifest, to show forth clearly.” We believe that Jesus Christ shows forth God's love for all people, and that we are called to share by our words and actions the good news of God’s grace and love as Jesus shares it with us.

We are committed to Christian outreach, working together to serve others as Christ served.

We believe that we are all ministers by virtue of our baptism and share that ministry and leadership between the clergy and the laity and respect each other’s opinions.

We will be diligent in worship and the practice of God’s teaching, especially that God is Love.

We have a strong reverence for the Episcopal expression of the Christian faith, based on the Bible and the Book of Common Prayer.

We believe that we are called to live by these principles. We know that we cannot achieve them by ourselves but only through the Grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who forgives us and gives us strength.
