Our Mission & Vision

St. Paul’s is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, which is made up of more than 85 million members in 44 regional and national member churches in more than 165 countries.

St. Paul’s is also part of the Diocese of Virginia, one of three dioceses in Virginia.

The mission of St. Paul’s is to “Proclaim Christ in the Heart of the City.” We fulfill that mission by:

  • Welcoming all to join us in worship and ministry.
  • Respecting the dignity of every human being.
  • Seeking and serving Christ in all people, loving our neighbors as ourselves.
  • Growing as a community of God’s people by reaching out to others.
  • Striving for justice and peace among all people.
  • Being active in the world as witnesses of God’s love.
  • Pledging ourselves to compassion and service by supporting one another in local, national, and international ministries.
