We Are St. Mark’s!
Collect for St. Mark’s Episcopal Church
Gracious God through your fatherly goodness make St. Mark’s a Christian community united to serve others; and enrich our life in Christ, that we might celebrate and share Christ’s love; and send your Holy Spirit to give us strength and courage to proclaim the Good News of your love through word and deed. Amen.
Our Mission Statement
We are a Christian community united in God’s call to serve others by proclaiming and sharing Christ’s love.
Who are we?
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
