We’re a New Church Who Together Follows What Jesus Teaches, Models, and Believes.
1. We have a Simple Focus: Discipleship
Discipleship is a lifestyle of following Jesus. Discipleship undergirds everything we do at Epiphany. It’s a simple focus, yes, but it’s the one focus that powered the early church’s incredible growth and fruit in that hostile Roman world. We don’t do consumeristic Christianity. We do discipleship.
2. We Value People
Our church is highly relational—we value people more than we value things. That’s why our strategy as a church plant has been to get people together. Strategically, this approach is purposely different than getting church stuff together. Like Jesus did, we’re investing in our people. Our greatest resources are our energy, creativity, and love for God and neighbors.
3. We Have Work to Do
We have a vision to start a disciple-making movement in Peoria. We want to be a healthy church with a rhythm of gathering together weekly to worship (UP), doing life together by being a tangible part of each others’ lives (IN), and serving the community in tangible ways (OUT). Together as we grow we will cover an amazingly diverse collection of networks and neighborhoods with God’s love and blessing.
4. We’re Anglican, and our Practices are Ancient
As Anglicans, we express our faith in and love for Jesus in ways Christians have since the time of Jesus. We highly value communion and baptism, as they are sacraments and outward signs in the inner works of God’s grace in our lives. We experience formation through our liturgies, the liturgical calendar, and the lectionary.
We invite you to visit our worship gathering and check out what we’re about.
