The Diocese of Olympia

We are over 31,000 people in more than 100 churches. We are building strong communities of faith. We are striving to be good stewards of all our resources: our time, our talents, our treasures and our Earth. We are deepening our relationships with people under 35, and with others: in the Holy Land, Latin America and all around the world.  Read more on the Diocese’s website:

What We Believe

A good question.  Numerous books have been written on this subject.  Theology has been debated and authority has been called into question.  In a nutshell (if anyone can really do that!), the following points would give a very basic overview of what Episcopalians and the Episcopal Church is all about.

  • We believe in God, the Father
  • We believe in Jesus Christ, his Son
  • We believe in the Holy Spirit
  • We believe in love
  • We believe in forgiveness
  • We believe in freedom
  • We believe in listening
  • We are steeped in tradition, but not mired in it
  • We inherit history
  • We turn to the future
