Scripture, Tradition, Reason, and Experience

Because the Sanctuary is an Episcopal congregation and part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, we value scripture, tradition, reason, and experience.

Scripture and tradition provide reliable foundations for our Christian lives, challenging us to explore the eternal and inexhaustible spiritual depths and mysteries of our faith.

Reason and experience help us bring forth, embrace, nurture, and integrate the life and truth offered to us by the Living Word and our living tradition.

Bringing scripture, tradition, reason, and experience together produces a creative synergy in our community, which makes us simultaneously conservative in our Christian foundations and progressive in our spiritual expressions.

In other words, Christ’s Episcopal Church, the Sanctuary, is a safe, open, Christian community … a place you can become and be fully alive in Christ through prayer, study, service, and play.

“Too many Christian hearts have a tendency to deny the radical freedom of God’s mercy to move where it will.” —Parker Palmer
