A word from the head of the Episcopal Church of the United States, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry!
Who we are...
As Episcopalians, we are followers of Jesus Christ.
We uphold the Bible and worship with the Book of Common Prayer.
We define our faith and doctrine by the metaphor of the three-legged stool: scripture/tradition/reason.
Our statement of faith is contained in the Nicene Creed that sets forth our belief in the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
All baptized persons are invited to receive communion in the Episcopal Church.
The national Episcopal Church and we at St. Alban's welcome all people into our congregation, regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, socioeconomic status, or political persuasion. We are all God's children and are called to love our neighbors as ourselves.
The Episcopal Church is seen as a bridge between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism, because it contains elements of both.
The congregation of St. Alban's has been in Bay City for 50 years, after two Bay City Episcopal churches merged - St. John's and Grace. Our church building is 100 years old!
