From episcopalchurch.org, What We Believe:
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 church life. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
The Episcopal Church was organized shortly after the American Revolution when it was forced to separate from the Church of England, as Church of England clergy were required to swear allegiance to the British monarch. It became, in the words of the 1990 report of the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Group on the Episcopate, “the first Anglican Province outside the British Isles.” Today it is divided into nine provinces and has dioceses outside the U.S. in Taiwan, Central and South America, the Caribbean and Europe. The Episcopal Diocese of the Virgin Islands encompasses both American and British territory.
The Church of the Redeemer is one of 60 parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina, led by Bishop Daniel Richards.
