St. Bartholomew's is a member of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Tennessee and the world wide Anglican Communion. We are followers of Jesus Christ and, as Anglicans, trace our origins back to Christ and His apostles.
We are Trinitarian, as expressed in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds.
We are Biblical, believing that God still speaks to us through the Holy Scriptures.
We are liturgical, using the Book of Common Prayer to guide our worship and shape our lives. The beliefs of the Episcopal Church are outlined in the Catechism found in the Book of Common Prayer.
We are sacramental, regularly practicing outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as certain ways to receive that grace. The two great sacraments are Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist.
St. Bartholomew’s is a theologically, demographically, and socially diverse family on a journey to grow more in love with God, one another, and in our willingness to serve one another. This growth happens through worship, formation, service, evangelism, and stewardship.
Compelled by the love of Jesus, we long to see our alienated world reconciled to God in Christ.
