Christ Church is a parish in the Diocese of Virginia in the Episcopal Church in the United States, part of the Anglican Communion. We are dedicated to knowing Christ and to making Christ known. We come from a variety of backgrounds and perspectives, but share a common commitment to growing in faith and love of God and neighbor. Christ Church is a place to ask and explore life’s big questions without easy answers.
We are a community of Christians guided by Scripture, Tradition, and Reason, as we seek to interpret our ancient faith in the modern world. The Episcopal Church has historically been characterized by regularized forms of worship and a generous latitude of theological interpretation. We use the Book of Common Prayer, two-thirds of which is taken from Scripture. In the sacraments, we look for outward and physical signs of inward, spiritual realities. We proclaim the ancient creeds of the church as symbols of our orthodox faith, and our continuity with Christians throughout the ages.
