Our Core Values

Our abiding Values are the values of the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, and of our Baptismal Covenant with Him. This is how we mean to live. 

In The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, we are especially committed to:


Everything we do flows from and returns to our worship of God, which we do as beautifully and meaningfully as we can, in keeping with the best of our Anglican tradition. Visit our Worship Resources page for more information.


In the love of Christ, we care constantly for the least, the last, and the lost in body, mind, and spirit. Visit our Ministries page for more information.


We help people of all ages to grow into spiritual maturity, and to be fully equipped to live the Christian life. Visit our Leadership Formation page for more information.

In addition, we are committed to working toward a sustainable and sufficient world where there is enough for all to thrive by supporting the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
