Who We Are
"We are a community, forgiven and loved by God, joyfully called to the work of reconciliation."
About Christ Church
We are a community, forgiven and loved by
God. We have discovered that God is here,
that we are here because God has shown us
love and forgiveness, and that we are here for
a purpose, that God is putting us to work here,
that we are here to build up the Body of Christ
Church, to be sure, but more. That it is not
enough, to paraphrase the prophet Isaiah, that
we should care for one another, but that we
are asked to be a little light in this part of the
world, in this neighborhood.
About the Episcopal Church
The Episcopal Church is a provincial partner in the Anglican Communion, comprising over 80 million members in 44 regional and national member churches around the globe in over 160 countries.
Christ Episcopal Church belongs to The Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. Our bishop is the Right Reverend Deon K. Johnson.
The mission of our diocese is the mission of all baptized Christians: To teach and to spread the Gospel and its knowledge of salvation to all people; and to make the love of Christ known in the world through our own actions as individuals, as congregations, and as the Diocese, by feeding the hungry, welcoming the stranger, clothing the naked, housing the homeless, caring for the sick, visiting the prisoner, and comforting those in times of trouble.
