Faith

thHJ74XVTTWe at St. Luke’s are a scripture-based, faithful community of persons who love their Lord and are committed to pray with, and for, each other, supporting each other in our spiritual growth. The ministry of all our members is vital to this parish and our consistent love and support of each other in times of trial and joy is essential.

We strive to preserve and further the best of the Anglican tradition, of which the Episcopal Church is a branch in the United States. The Episcopal Church encompasses the truths of both the Catholic and Protestant Traditions; we are both Scriptural and Sacramental. Holy Scriptures invigorate our study, worship, and corporate life. The Sacrament of Baptism begins a life of constant union with God in the fellowship of the Church, and the Holy Eucharist is the central act of Sunday worship whereby we partake of Christ’s love and renewal, and the living Christ abides in us.

Our primary theological document for worship is “The Book of Common Prayer”. This book has formed the Episcopal Church’s thought and practice since its first publication in 1549, and continues its powerful influence today in its modern format. The Book of Common Prayer inspires our Christian spiritual living including the daily prayer and weekly worship of the Church, with Psalms, Creeds, Catechism, and historical documents.
