Who We Are

We are diverse in every sense of the word, yet united in our love of The Lord Jesus Christ and our love of one another, as brothers and sisters in Christ.   

Every Sunday you will find Episcopalians throughout the world standing, sitting, and kneeling in worship of our mutual Lord Jesus Christ.  The Episcopal Church, though diverse, gathers around the Eucharist, the Bible, and the Book of Common Prayer which links us all as one people in the Kingdom of God.

As a congregation, we are a parish church in the Episcopal Diocese of Arizona, which in turn is part of the Episcopal Church in the United States, which is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

The Episcopal Church in the United States was founded in 1785 after the Revolutionary War severed ties with Great Britain and the Church of England.  We began small but through God’s grace and the persistent nature the Episcopal Church spread throughout the new nation and across her borders into the world.  The Episcopal Church currently consists of 109 dioceses divided into 9 provinces located in the United States, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Haiti, Honduras, Puerto Rico, Taiwan, Venezuela, the Virgin Islands, the Navajoland Area Mission, and the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe.
