What We Believe

As Episcopalians, we, at St. Peter’s, believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to share God’s love for every human being. In our tradition, all persons serve as bishops, priests, deacons, and lay leaders, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation.

The congregation at St. Peter’s is racially, ethnically, and economically diverse, and welcoming to persons of all backgrounds. Basically, we believe that God loves you – no exceptions!

Our Beginnings

St. Peter’s was organized in September 1953, meeting in a four-room house with 29 members (left). Ground was broken in June 1954 for the present Church which was dedicated on June 12, 1955 (right).
