We Are an Historic, Anglican Church. Our own denomination,  the Reformed Episcopal Church, began in 1873,  but we trace our roots back to the Church
of England and the courageous men and women of the English Reformation. For more information on the Reformed Episcopal Church in general, click here

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.  The teachings of the Bible are our sole rule of faith and practice. 

We believe worshipping God is our highest calling. We believe it is especially appropriate to worship God using the prayers and practices Christians have
followed through the centuries. That is why we use the Book of Common Prayer in our worship services. Our prayer book is a collection of prayers and services
which have helped, inspired, and encouraged generations of Christians over hundreds of years.

On May 18, 1875 the Reformed Episcopal Church adopted this statement regarding Holy Scripture:
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God. Holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost: Holy Scripture is therefore the Word of God; not only
does it contain the Oracles of God, but it is itself the very Oracles of God. And hence it containeth all things necessary to salvation: so that whatsoever is not read
therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation."
