The Episcopal Church believes that God is loving and that through Jesus people are victorious over death and sin. Episcopalians use tradition and reason to understand the Bible, and they also refer to the "Book of Common Prayer" and "The Catechism" to better understand God.
The Episcopal Church believes that Jesus is fully human and fully God. The church believes in the doctrine of the Holy Trinity and has two fundamental statements of faith: the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed. Episcopalians practice baptism and communion. A member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the Episcopal Church became a separate organization from the Church of England after the American Revolution.
