ABOUT ST. PAUL'S
150 Years at the Intersection of Saginaw & Third Streets
LOVING. LIBERATING. LIFE-GIVING.
St. Paul’s is the church with a heart in the heart of the city of Flint. We’re a downtown church with our doors open wide to the community. Our worship style blends creativity with tradition, and our congregation is made up of a diverse and largely progressive group of people who come from the city and suburbs because downtown Flint is a terrific place to be. St. Paul’s celebrates the joy of loving, liberating, and life-giving Jesus.
St. Paul’s follows Christ and makes a difference in the world through:
- Inspired worship
- Powerful teaching and
- Service to people who are hurting and poor
Intentional Inclusion and Democratic Governance
St. Paul’s and the Episcopal Church practice full sacramental equality for LGBTQ people. This includes marriage and ordination. Episcopal Church policies are set democratically by governing bodies made up of lay people, deacons, priests, and bishops.
One of Many
St. Paul’s is a congregation of The Episcopal Church, a denomination in the Anglican Communion, made up of millions of people across the world. We are members of the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan, a network of 47 congregations.
What We Believe
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
