About St. Philip’s
St. Philip’s is a parish of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Oklahoma offering a traditional Christian style worship with roots dating back to the beginning of the church around 150 C.E.
We are very welcoming to newcomers, old or young, rich or poor, strong or meek, singled or coupled, looking to meet Christ in an extended family, and participate in God's mission to create a loving community.
If you are seeking company in your journey with Christ, we might be able to help you ask the questions, struggle with you to seek the answers, and help you see yourself as an image of Christ; if this is what you seek we might just be the place for you.
The Rev. Steve Bilsbury, Rector
2015 Confirmation Class with The Rt. Rev. Bishop Edward Konieczny
The Episcopal Church welcomes all who worship Jesus Christ, in 109 dioceses and three regional areas in 17 nations. The Episcopal Church is a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
The mission of the church, as stated in the Book of Common Prayer’s catechism (p. 855), is "to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ."
The 2012 General Convention established the Anglican Communion Five Marks of Mission as a mission priority framework for the 2013-2015 triennium:
· To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom
· To teach, baptize and nurture new believers
· To respond to human need by loving service
· To seek to transform unjust structures of society, to challenge violence of every kind and to pursue peace and reconciliation
· To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
Regardless of where you are in your walk with God, all who are called to this table are welcome to share in the Bread of Life, which is the Body of Christ, and the Cup of Salvation, which is the Blood of Christ.
"Sometimes it takes a long time feeding on this divine bread before we recognize its nourishment in our lives, are convicted by its truth and are changed by it."
- Br. Eldridge Pendleton
