Saint Paul's Episcopal   Faith that Transforms

about

St. Paul's Beginnings

the CrossThe Apostle Paul constantly talked about the transforming power of faith in Jesus Christ: that life in Christ is better than anything the world offers; that every person, no matter their past, is invited to be transformed into Jesus likeness; that following Jesus leads to eternal life. This is why we named this church after St. Paul. We believe, teach, and follow "faith that transforms."

St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a plant of The Episcopal Diocese of Dallas ministering in the Prosper and Celina areas. The Rt. Rev. James M. Stanton commissioned St. Paul's as a mission station on August 1st, 2007.

St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Frisco and St. Andrew's Episcopal Church in McKinney were essential partners in planting St. Paul's.

St. Paul's first public worship service was on October 5th, 2008.

What We Believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and we seek to conform our lives, individually and as a church, to God's Word. We believe the Bible contains all that we need to know for salvation, that the Bible will not lead us astray, and that nothing outside of what the Bible says is necessary for salvation.

We believe the Nicene Creed is a sufficient statement of the Christian faith:

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
