What We Believe

We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.

We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.

We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation

We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.

Grace Episcopal Church is a warm, loving, and accepting congregation in Clayton, North Carolina.

Whether you are looking for a place to pray, a bible study group, worship that draws us into the life of God, community, or a safe place to ask questions, we hope you will join us.

No matter who you are and where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome at Grace!
