Welcome to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church. The first thing we would have you know is that you are welcome in this place! Whether you are visiting from Waco or from out-of-town, new to the Christian faith, or seeking a Church home, we invite you to explore St. Paul’s. Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, we hope that you will accompany us.
About the Episcopal Church
The Episcopal Church is the American province of the Anglican Communion, a worldwide body of over 70 million Christians who trace their origins to the Church of England. Often, the Episcopal Church is called a “bridge church” between Roman Catholicism and Protestant denominations. This is because much Episcopal theology is Protestant in nature, while much of Episcopal worship, spiritual practice, and church structure resembles Catholicism. As a result, individuals and families from a variety of backgrounds will find in the Episcopal Church a home that honors their own faith tradition while providing a new source of shared nourishment.
About St. Paul’s
St. Paul’s strives to be a welcoming and diverse community, offering a variety of worship, fellowship, education, and ministry opportunities. Therefore we invite you to join with us as we “seek and serve Christ in all persons.” We’d like to get to know you, too! Please email Jill , or fill out a Guest Card (found in the pews and around our Church building.) We thank you for your interest in St. Paul’s, and look forward to an opportunity to welcome you personally.
