The Episcopal Church is a Christian church. We are bound together not by shared positions in doctrine or politics, but by the love of God as experienced in Christ Jesus, reflected in shared worship and commitment to the beloved community inclusive of all people. In the Episcopal Church critical thought, struggle, and difficult questions are not considered a threat to the faith, but an opportunity to deepen the spiritual life. To this end, the Episcopal Church welcomes a range of theological perspectives.
St. James Church enthusiastically embraces the inclusivity of the canons and constitutions of the Church:
- The Episcopal Church recognizes its complicity in the evil of racism and is committed to eradicating racism within the Church and in the world.
- Women and men share equal worth and dignity in the Episcopal Church. Women serve in all orders of ministry, including the priesthood, and the office of bishop.
- LGBTQ persons are full and equal members in the Episcopal Church. LGBTQ persons serve in all orders of ministry, including the priesthood, and the office of bishop.
