About Episcopalians

What is the Episcopal Church?

The Episcopal Church is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, with 70 million members in 163 countries. We are a community of Christians bound together by our belief that Holy Scripture contains the very core of all Christian faith. Through the many ancient, as well as modern, stories that connects us to Jesus and his teachings, we discover Godís hope and call to us in our life together.

St. Johnís is one of 32 parishes that comprise the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada. The Diocese is led by the Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, Ninth Bishop of Nevada.

Our Mission

St. Johnís Episcopal Church is a family called by Christ to grow spiritually, to share our life with others, and to make known Godís love through word and deed.

What do Episcopalians Believe?

We believe there is One God who creates all things, redeems us from sin and death and renews us as the Children of God. As Episcopalians we promise to follow Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord. We believe the mission of our church is restoration of all people to unity with God and each other in Christ.

What unites Episcopalians is not so much a set of fixed, common beliefs or a single authority for interpreting those beliefs, but a common form of worship, as provided in our Book of Common Prayer, and a common structure of our church, which is overseen by bishops.
