Statement of Faith


Holy Comforter Episcopal Church is a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Florida. As such, it is a member of The Episcopal Church and the global Anglican Communion.  We are a welcoming and loving Christian community celebrating the love of God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Our core beliefs can best be summed up by the words of The Chicago-Lambeth Quadrilateral of 1888: 

  • The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as "containing all things necessary to salvation," and as being the rule and ultimate standard of faith. 

  • The Apostles' Creed, as the Baptismal Symbol; and the Nicene Creed, as the sufficient statement of the Christian faith. 

  • The two Sacraments ordained by Christ Himself--Baptism and the Supper of the Lord --ministered with unfailing use of Christ's words of Institution, and of the elements ordained by Him. 

  • The Historic Episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of its administration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples called of God into the Unity of His Church.
