Statement of Belief
“We, the members of the Episcopal Church of St. Clement and St. Peter, so believe that all people are made in the image and likeness of God, have a special personal relationship with God and are worthy of respect and honor.
The Bible, Book of Common Prayer, and the Creeds as embraced by the Episcopal Church are fundamental to our practice of the faith and growth as Christians.
We reaffirm our belief in one God who made heaven and earth, all that is seen and unseen, and in one Lord, Jesus Christ, true God and true man. It was for our sake that he suffered death and was raised from the dead and will return again in glory. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the giver of everlasting life.
We believe that God’s love is freely given and that we are called to express God’s love to our sisters and brothers in all we say and do. We believe that through our gifts of time and treasure, we share God’s goodness and glory with others. We respect the importance of regular worship attendance and participation in the life and ministry of the church.”
“We seek to be faithful disciples, renewing our efforts every day to hear God’s call. We seek to nurture and encourage Christian maturity through our worship, fellowship and willingness to share in the ministry of Jesus Christ.”
Welcome all to grow in God’s love
“We resolve to do all that leads us to Christian maturity and faith, work together to care for people’s most pressing needs, and welcome and encourage all to grow with us as we participate in the diocesan mission to live God’s love and tell what we have seen and heard.”
