Episcopal Identity

Heart of Episcopal Identity

“WILL YOU STRIVE FOR JUSTICE AND PEACE AMONG ALL PEOPLE,
AND RESPECT THE DIGNITY OF EVERY HUMAN BEING?”
Baptismal Covenant in the Book of Common Prayer, page 305

Striving for justice and respecting the dignity of every human being is not just a hope for us, but an expectation. In keeping this immovable standard, not only do we reflect the heart of Episcopal identity, but we also perpetuate our haven of freedom and diversity.
