About St. Peter’s

WELCOME HOME

St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is a loving community focused on spiritual growth, caring service, and lively worship. There is a place for you in our church family, and we hope you will join us!

We are a historic church that traces its roots back through the Apostles. Our most important statements of belief are found in our Book of Common Prayer and in our worship. We believe in God who created us, and in His son, Jesus, who died for us and rose again. We believe that the Holy Spirit lives within the church and in each one of us. And we believe that the Bible is inspired by God. We believe that all of those things inform every aspect of our lives and help us to flourish, becoming the people, and the community, that God created us to be.

The Nicene Creed was written in 325 A.D. and expresses the core of the Christian faith. For being so old, it speaks beautifully to our lives and faith today:

We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen. We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Our 2017 strategic plan identified three main areas of focus for us in the coming years. First, we will strengthen our worship and music, keeping our services relatable and lively. Second, we will focus on formation for children, youth, and adults, adding small groups and classes that will help people integrate faith into their life. And finally, we will put our energy into outreach, spreading the love of Christ through our neighborhood and city.

Details will be published late in the fall of 2017.
