St. Stephen Church practices the living historic forms of the liturgies of the Church and the sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Baptism. We draw on the traditions and wisdom of the Historic Church and are unashamedly part of the one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. At the center of our worship is the sacrament of the Body and Blood – the Holy Eucharist – in which we believe that grace is imparted by the real presence of Christ.
St. Stephen has a high view of Holy Scripture, believing that it contains all things necessary for salvation and godly living. We are committed to the faithful reading, studying, teaching, and preaching from the Scriptures; as well as believing that the Holy Scriptures are a wellspring for spiritual maturity. We believe in the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, a holy life, and a commitment to evangelism and missions.
St. Stephen Church is open to the work of the Holy Spirit and believes that God’s people have always been a spiritually gifted people. From the Apostles to the modern Church, Christians have been endowed with a power beyond themselves; a power from the Holy Spirit Himself. We not only allow, but anticipate the Spirit’s presence and working through this gifting in both worship and in daily acts of service.
