Who We Are
Our Mission Statement
Every member of St. Paul's is called and set free to build relationships with God, each other, and the World through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are a Christian organization striving to serve Christ and those he loves through the two Great Commandments (“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matt 22:37 and “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”Matt 22:39) and the Great Commission ("Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you." Matt 28:19-20) . Though not exhaustively, our beliefs are best defined by the Nicene Creed and the 39 Articles of Religion found in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.
Our Denomination - Episcopal
St. Paul's Episcopal Church is part of the Episcopal Diocese of Central Florida, of The Episcopal Church (USA), and a member of the Anglican Communion.
On Sunday morning we have both a RITE I (8:00 a.m.) and a RITE II (10:30 a.m.) Service. The choir and organist participate in the RITE II Service.
Our Solemn High services, held on Holy Days, will fill your senses with the rich colors of the altar vestments, the luscious smell of incense, the awesome sounds of the Choir and Organ, and the inspiring spoken liturgy.
Music and liturgy are critical parts of every Sunday Family Service at 10:30 am and our Wednesday Praise and Worship Service at 5:35 pm. St. Paul's worship includes singing, music, elaborate clothing (called vestments), and incense. The vestments add to the beauty and festivity of the services and signify their special ministries. The altar is decorated with rich fabrics in four colors: white, red, violet, and green. The colors change with the liturgical seasons and holy days of the Church Year.
