youthWHO WE ARE:The Episcopal Church is a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion, with 70 million members in 164 countries. We are a community of Christians bound together by our belief that Holy Scripture contains the very core of all Christian faith and thought, by the many ancient and modern stories that connect us to Jesus and his teachings, and by discovering daily God's hope and call to us through our life together.

Endeavoring to proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ and to be faithful stewards of God's gifts, St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Clifton strives to be faithful in worship, to be a center of fellowship and spiritual formation for all who enter our doors, and to serve the homeless and the hungry through the work of St. Peter's Haven. For more, check out our About Us page.


We are a church which believes that God has taken human flesh in the person of Jesus of Nazareth.  We believe that God continues to bring people into the Body of Christ, which is the church, through sacraments.  The sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace.

We hold that Jesus instituted two primary sacraments:  Baptism and Holy Communion.  We also hold that there are five other sacramental signs: Confirmation, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Marriage, and Ordination.
