Saint Albans is the "First Church" of the Reformed Episcopal Church in the United States and Canada. Founded in 1873, the Reformed Episcopal Church is committed to evangelism in the spread of the Gospel to all around us. The REC holds to the traditional Anglican faith and practise of the English Reformation. The REC is a founding member and constituent diocese of the Anglican Church in North America.
We are a BIBLICAL church because we are careful to give Scripture its rightful place as the ultimate rule of faith and practise. Reason and tradition are of great value, but Scripture is our highest authority. We are EVANGELICAL because we believe in the necessity of conversion from unbelief to faith in the resurrected Jesus Christ. We are LITURGICAL in that the traditional Book of Common Prayer provides the form for our worship of the Lord Jesus. Finally, we are EPISCOPAL because we enjoy and need the pastoral care of our souls, and we must preserve the faith once delivered. This ancient form of church government helps meet these needs in the best way we know.
We believe in the . . . Trinity: One God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost Deity of Jesus and His Virgin Birth Inspiration and authority of the Scriptures Forgiveness of sins through Christ alone Gift of Salvation by grace through faith.
