The story of Peter illustrates our Vision
We are St Peter’s Church and just LOOK what happened to Peter! Peter met Jesus, the Lord of ALL and that changed everything. For three years Jesus loved, healed, mentored, corrected, and equipped Peter, turning his life around in pursuit of a new purpose. As Jesus poured his life into him, Peter became the man God intended him to be, seeking the lost, fishing for men. Their story is ours. We are a caring community of peopleBuilding Christians for Service person-to-person, family-by-family, in partnership with others to change the world.

Our Mission is guided by Our Core Values
We advance this mission as an Episcopal Church, in the Diocese of
Virginia, rooted in the classical Anglican Way, in communion with 80
million Anglican brothers and sisters around the world.
We areEvangelical in our emphasis on personal faith and
transformation in Jesus Christ, in our high view and diligent
study of Holy Scripture, and the practice of personal discipleship
and evangelism. We preach the saving Good News of Jesus Christ and we
are “fishers of men” like St. Peter (Luke 5:1-11).
We are Catholicin our devotion to God through liturgical worship in
continuity with the ancient Church and the global Communion. We
hunger to grow in Christ and to help others do the same through the
simple, ancient disciplines of the spiritual life. We are built upon
the ancient Rock, and as Peter said, we are “living stones…built
up as a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual
sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ” (1 Peter 2:1-12).
We are Caring
in the love with which we embrace all sorts and conditions of people,inviting everyone to find their place in our inter-generational
fellowship. Each of us are healed and restored to wholeness through
purposeful participation in life-transforming Christian community.
Peter denied Jesus three times, but Jesus restored him on the beach
at breakfast asking three times, “Do you love me, Peter? Then feed
my sheep” (John 21:9-19).
