About Diocese of Springfield
We are Christians
We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord. We are baptized into his death and resurrection. We strive to follow him in all things.
We are Catholics
Our faith and practice is grounded in the tradition of the Church–that is, what has been handed on to us– going back to Jesus and the apostles. (No, we’re not RomanCatholics, though we have much in common with our friends in that tradition.)
We are Anglicans
Our spiritual ‘DNA’ comes from the Church of England, and we are part of the family of 38 churches, all over the world, in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury.
We are Episcopalians
The Episcopal Church, established in 1789, is the American expression of Anglican Christianity. We are one of 110 dioceses that mutually support one another in a common doctrine, discipline, and worship.
