Welcome to the Central Florida Episcopal Church Women
We Episcopalians put stock in a cherishing, freeing, and nurturing God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent individuals from the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are relatives of and accomplices with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are important for the third biggest gathering of Christians on the planet.
We have faith in following the lessons of Jesus Christ, whose life, passing, and restoration saved the world. We have a tradition of consideration, trying to tell and represent God’s affection for each person; ladies and men fill in as clerics, ministers, and elders in our congregation. Laypeople and pastorate coordinate as pioneers at all levels of our congregation. Authority is a gift from God, and can be communicated by all individuals in our congregation, paying little heed to sexual character or direction.
We accept that God loves you – no special cases.
Our Faith & The Bible
The 39 Articles, a 1536 central record of Anglican religious philosophy, relates that “Sacred Scripture containeth everything important to salvation.” The Scriptures, involved the Old and New Testament, as well as a few spurious texts, were composed under the motivation of the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is of exceptional significance to Episcopal love; during a Sunday morning administration, the assembly will ordinarily hear no less than three readings from Scripture, and a large part of the formality from The Book of Common Prayer depends expressly on the Biblical texts. As indicated by the Catechism, “We comprehend the importance of the Bible by the assistance of the Holy Spirit, who directs the Church in the genuine translation of the Scriptures” (p. 853-4)
We Believe in Baptism
“In the waters of baptism, we are lovingly adopted by God into God’s family, which we call the Church, and given God’s own life to share and reminded that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ. Holy Baptism, which can be performed through pouring of water or immersion in it, marks a formal entrance to the congregation and wider Church; the candidates for the sacrament make a series of vows, including an affirmation of the Baptismal Covenant, and are baptized in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. They are marked as Christ’s own for ever, having “clothed [themselves] with Christ” (Galatians 3:27).”

At the point when we comprehend all that the Savior accomplishes for us, He turns into the main individual in our lives. The good news is that we don’t have to handle them alone.

No one understands.’ But the Son of God perfectly knows and understands, for He has felt and borne our individual burdens,” said Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. “And because of His infinite and eternal sacrifice (see Alma 34:14), He has perfect empathy and can extend to us His arm of mercy.”
