Frequently Asked Questions

Are Episcopalians Christians?

Yes, Episcopalians are Christians first and above all else.  We come from a long line of Christians dating back to the first followers of Jesus called the apostles and we strive to continue in the way of the apostles' teaching and fellowship by following Christ in our day.

 

What does "Episcopal" mean?  Why do you call yourselves "Episcopalians"?

"Episcopal" means "oversight" and refers to the oversight of Bishops in our church structure. We call ourselves Episcopalians because we have kept the role of Bishop, as well as the Priest and Deacon from our Catholic roots.

 

Do you believe in the Bible?

We believe first and foremost in Jesus Christ.  We believe that the Holy Scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments point to the fulfillment of God's salvation for all people in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Word of God because God inspired their human authors and because God still speaks to us through the Bible.  We seek to understand the truth of God's word in scripture through careful study, prayer and conversation by the help of the Holy Spirit.

 

Will the Episcopal Church take anybody?

Jesus will take anybody who wants to follow Him and so will we.

 

 Who can receive Holy Communion?

All baptized persons are welcome to receive Holy Communion.  If you are not baptized you are encouraged to come forward cross your arms over your chest and receive a blessing.

 

How do I receive Holy Communion?

When you come forward kneel or stand and hold out your hands (one on top of the other) to receive the bread.  You may eat it immediately or dip it in the cup of wine.  If you consume your bread and drink from the cup please help the server who is holding the cup to guide it to your lips using the bottom rim of the cup.  You may always elect to receive the bread only and decline the cup of wine.

 

What is the Book of Common Prayer?

It is the book used by the Episcopal Church (and by other churches) to guide our worship.  It contains many different services for various occasions including weddings, funerals, baptisms, ordinations and services families can use at home.

 

What service is used on Sundays?

The Holy Eucharist service is used.  There are two forms of the Holy Eucharist and they are Rite I and Rite IIRite I uses traditional language (thee's and thou's) and is more penitential in nature.  The Rite II service uses contemporary language it is more joyful in nature and has more flexibility.  We use the Rite II service.
