We are a multicultural congregation representing 22 countries from different ages, races, and backgrounds. As a faith community we celebrate God, diversity and the fullness it brings to each of us.
Grace Episcopal Church is part of the wider Episcopal Church family, headquartered in New York. As a people of faith, we find the fullest expression of Christianity in the scriptures, ancient creeds, and sacraments, both the ordained and laity. These expressions of our faith are signs of grace ordained by Christ and ministry. The foundations of our faith and spiritual life arise from the following three basic tenents:
- Scripture: the Old and New Testaments contain the essence of our faith.
- Reason: we should use reason to explore and comprehend God's work.
- Tradition: respecting traditions, as in our hymns and prayers, helps us to interpret the scriptures, share experiences of early Christians, and present the historical underpinnings of our faith through our liturgy.
Origins of Episcopalianism & the Episcopal Church -- the Episcopal Church is part of the Anglican Communion.
Grace Episcopal Church was established in 1955 when the Diocese of Southeast Florida recognized the need for our faith in the rapidly growing north-end of WPB.
Diversity at GEC
Rev. Winston A. Wright is committed to diversity and works with other clergy in the Diocese of Southeast Florida to increase and preserve this cultural mix.
