We seek to be conduits of God's healing and restoration, working toward openness and understanding, justice, and healing and wholeness of life for all people.

 

Our Virginia Beach Episcopal Church welcomes into the full life and ministry of the church persons of every race, culture, age, gender, sexual orientation, ability, and economic status. If you're looking for a Spirit-filled, Christ-centered community where you can grow in your faith and relationship with Jesus, you'll feel right at home in our congregation.
