From the Historic stream we have gained the treasure of practice in the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper and Baptism. We believe that we are a part of one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church (Catholic meaning universal not Roman Catholic). We also believe that the Church is meant to be governed in the way handed down by the Apostles to the Church and outlined in the scriptures, which is best expressed in the Episcopal manner (Bishops, Priests and Deacons). We believe in being rooted in Orthodox Theology. We believe that the church is meant to lead the way in social action and bring Christ’s justice and love to the people in our society.
