What We Believe
Church of the Atonement is an Episcopal Church.
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ as God's Word incarnate in a fully human person. Christ showed us who we are meant to be and how we are meant to live as God's children. Giving himself over to death on the cross, and being raised by God to new life, Christ offers God's love, healing, and salvation to us and to the whole world. We respond in faith to God's mercy revealed in Jesus, and are welcomed into Christ's Body the Church. Through Baptism, we are given the gift of the Holy Spirit who empowers us to live as Christians in our everyday lives, loving our neighbors and seeking justice and peace for all.
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 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.
