We do not claim that The Episcopal Church is "the only true Church" as some other denominations do. We do not teach that outside our church there is no salvation. However, we claim that ours is not only a member of the Anglican Communion and the World Council of Churches but also a part of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. Alongside, and in partnership with other churches and faith communities, we participate in God's work of saving the lost, freeing the oppressed and reconciling ruptured relationships.
As Episcopalians, we must be ready at all times to justify our existence and presence in the world today. If people inquire about what we believe, we must be ready to answer them. If they would ask what is unique about us and what good would it be if they belong to The Episcopal Church, we must be ready to say that ours could be the best church one could belong to. This Booklet will help you as you "read, mark, learn and inwardly digest" what is meant by "Being Episcopalian" in the world today.
