About Us

What We Believe

St. John's is part of the Episcopal Church, which is a part of the world-wide Anglican Communion. Our traditions include an intentional connection to the early church, the riches of Irish and English Christianity, Catholic and Protestant elements incorporated in the English Reformation, and particular American characteristics. We believe that Scripture is the Word of God and contains all things necessary for salvation. We believe what the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed say about God and Jesus Christ. We place a high value on our common worship and sacramental life. We believe that we live into the Kingdom of God in our community of faith.

The Diocese of Texas website offers some further explanations of Episcopalian faith and life.

The Diocese of New York provides insight on our history, on church terminology, and on what we believe.
