What We Believe


The sources of authority in the Episcopal Church are scripture, tradition, and reason.Sunday worship includes readings from the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament and Psalms) and the Christian Scriptures (the New Testament).As an Episcopal Church, St. Anne’s is part of the Anglican Communion.Our theology and worship have roots in the Catholic tradition and also the Protestant tradition.The Anglican tradition is often called “the middle way” because it incorporates the liturgy and Sacramental life of the Catholic tradition with the Protestant tradition’s recognition of the importance of an individual relationship with God through one’s own understanding from Scripture, tradition, and reason.The Episcopal Church encourages exploration of the issues of faith and life, and seeks to be inclusive of all people.
