What We believe

We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Episcopalians are often asked, “What do you believe?”  There is certainly an abundance of rich information stating what we believe, but really it is quite simple… We believe that our call to the Christian faith and following Jesus’ way of life demands that we care about all people and respect the dignity of every human being. We are followers of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and we believe in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

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.

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.

We believe that all are welcome in God's kingdom and, certainly, all are welcome in the Episcopal Church in Delaware.
