Who we are..
St. James Episcopal Church is a forward-looking and inclusive urban parish, grounded in the sacramental and liturgical life of The Book of Common Prayer, the Holy Scripture, and the Anglican tradition. We try to be a faithful community that lives out our baptismal vows. It is the mission of the Church to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.
As lay persons, our ministry is to represent Christ and his Church; to bear witness to him wherever we may be; and, according to the gifts given to us, to carry on Christ's work of reconciliation in the world; and to take our place in the life, worship, and governance of the Church.
As Christians, we follow Christ; we come together week by week for worship; and to work, pray, and give for the spread of the kingdom of God.
