St. John's Episcopal Church

in Kirkland, WA

At St John's we ask that you consider the very real possibility that God is up to something good in your life.

 

Although the world we inhabit is filled with great risk and ambiguity, the Episcopalian faith professed at St John's perish represents a spiritual practice that can better prepare us to navigate the instabilities of life regardless of the challenges presented - be interpersonal, worldly, or spiritual in nature.

Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.

 

We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

 

We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.

 

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
