About St Paul's Episcopal Church
St. Paul's is a diverse, spirited, welcoming family of faith.
St Paul's identifies itself as an open church. By this we mean that all persons are welcome to come and be part of this community wherever they are in their spiritual journey. We seek to be a safe place for skeptics and doubters as well as for convicted believers.
We are an inclusive church in which people from many backgrounds have found common ground. We are a diverse community who have discovered in God a oneness greater in significance than our differences. Like so many, we have come to know that our variety refects the divine comprehensiveness of the God of all created things.
Who are we? What do we bring to Kitsap County that it didn't have before? We are Christians, but not the kind that we hear so much about; we are forward looking, outward looking, and tolerant to the point where some would call us "liberal." But I think of us as just Christians who take the social implications of the Gospel seriously. We are a 'Church without walls'.
~ The Rev. Randy Lord-Wilkinson, Rector (1995-2007)
