About Us

The Missionary Diocese of the South and Ozarks is a part of the United Episcopal Church of North America.

First and foremost, we are disciples of Jesus Christ. Our identity is bound up in his identity as the Son of God and Savior of mankind.

Our doctrinal allegiance is to the Bible. We hold to the doctrines of the Protestant and Reformed faith as summarized in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion.

Our congregations range from well-established churches to new plants. In those churches, you will find young and old, cradle Anglicans and inquiring visitors, a variety of ethnic backgrounds, the strong and the disabled, the poor and the financially secure: in other words, people from all sorts of backgrounds. What unites us? Jesus.

We are Anglicans — that is, Protestant Christians who worship in the tradition of the old Church of England. Our heritage is from the Protestant Reformation as it was carried out in England. However, this doesn’t mean we are an ethnic church tied to Britain. We continue the doctrines and forms of worship of the English Reformers, but we are all of the one race of people redeemed by Christ.

Come help us spread the gospel: the message that those who are sinners and outcasts have the hope of redemption through our Lord Jesus; that he is the only way to God; that he alone is worthy of glory and honor and power.

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.
