Welcome 

You’re invited…

Come and worship God with us
Come know Jesus Christ with us
Come and follow Jesus

At St. Mary’s, we are grateful to be a holy community. We stand in awe of the mystery and love of God, and we seek to know and serve God by following the teachings and example of Jesus Christ. We believe God's Spirit is actively at work to heal and transform us and our world.

We are proud to be a diverse community representing many origins, walks of life, and points of view.

We are blessed to be a generous community. We give back where we can, helping people near and far.

We are committed to God in Jesus Christ, to one another, and to Jesus' mission to the world. We enjoy and care for one another at St. Mary's. We reach out in God's compassion to the world around us, including people from all backgrounds and cultures. We rejoice in God's love through worship, fellowship, and special events.

What We Believe:

We believe that Christ called his followers into a community. One cannot follow Christ all by oneself, but must take the journey with others. Each individual brings their unique perspective and experience of God to our common life.

At the center of that life is worship: we gather to make our Common Prayer before our God. Unlike many other churches, the Episcopal Church does not have a confession or belief statement unique to itself that defines Episcopal belief. Instead, we base our life upon the Baptismal Covenant, in which we affirm the Holy Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as One God in the words of the Ancient Apostle’s Creed and also commit ourselves to godly life.

The Episcopal Church seeks to discern God’s will for us through the combination of Scripture, Tradition, and Reason. This formula, known as the “three-legged stool," helps us to understand how to apply our faith in an ever-changing world by holding on to what is eternally true and good and separating it from what is merely fashionable or trendy.


The Baptismal Covenant

I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.

I will, with God’s help…

…Continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers.

…Persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.

…Proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ.

…Seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.

…Strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.
