You are fully valued, fully accepted, and fully loved.
We believe that all people are created in God’s image—celebrating the dignity of every human being, and we honor that every person, in all their diversity, is essential to building up the body of Christ. We are a diverse community following the way of Jesus. Come journey with us as we seek to fulfill our mission in the world- working for the Kingdom of God by transforming our communities with the infinite love of God.
Episcopalians strive to live by one story above all others: the Good News of God’s eternal love for us, as revealed in the Bible. This Good News is seen most clearly in the life, death, and resurrection of God’s Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Spirit’s promise of eternal and abundant life in Christ.
We are called to love one another because God loves us. Because of Jesus, we are able to learn how to live transformed lives. As we experience transformation, the love God gives us allows us to work toward the transformation of the world.
We believe that God’s ultimate vision for the world is for it to become a place of healing, wholeness, and peace—a Beloved Community. God’s love will ultimately bring peace to our world.
The last few years have been hard. We all need help healing. Racial strife, COVID19, and immigration issues are just a few things that have pushed us to the limit.
While everyone’s recent hardships are different, we are all in this together. Some have had it more difficult than others. The Episcopal Diocese of San Diego is here to help. Join us in healing each other. Help apply your energy into demanding social change and to helping those in the deepest need. Know that you make the world a better place and that the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego is in your corner.
