About St. Philip's

St. Philip's Church is a welcoming community of faith serving as a center of caring, outreach and worship for Philipstown and beyond.

While grounding ourselves in the Episcopal tradition, we are open and accepting of people of diverse backgrounds, faith traditions and lifestyles.

About the Episcopal Church

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.

Our services use the Book of Common Prayer. We, who are many and diverse, come together in Christ through our worship, our common prayer. The prayer book, most recently revised in 1979, contains our liturgies, our prayers, our theological documents, and much more. Read more about the history and see an online copy of the BCP here.
