Welcome to St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church in Salado Texas!

We strive to be a welcoming and diverse community, offering a variety of worship, fellowship, education, and ministry opportunities. Therefore we invite you to join with us as we “seek and serve Christ in all persons.”

St. Joseph’s welcomes all people where ever they are in their faith journey. We believe that we can best come to know God, our creator, through a relationship with his son, Jesus Christ. The clearest statements of what we believe is to be found in the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed. As a church, we emphasize the mystery of encountering God in worship. We believe all people are called to be ministers and to serve God, his Church and the community in which they live.

Please join us for worship and be a part of our Faith community. You are never a visitor. You are always our guest and we will welcome you with open arms.

Peace and Blessings,

Fr. Bob+

Are we a protestant Church?

Yes. The word protestant means “to witness for” and reminds us that our church witnesses for Jesus in the world around us. As an Episcopal Church we wish to work for greater unity among all Christians and churches. We believe that through a relationship with Jesus as our savior and redeemer that we come to salvation. We  believe that the  Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the Word of God, and contain all things necessary for salvation. We understand the meaning of the Bible by help of the Holy Spirit, who guides the Church in the true interpretation of the Scriptures.

Are we a Catholic Church?

Yes. The Church is catholic, because it proclaims the whole Faith to all people, to the end of time. The Church is apostolic, because it continues in the teaching and fellowship of the apostles and is sent to carry out Christ’s mission to all people.

Are we a Sacramental Church?

Yes. A sacrament is an outward and visible sign of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace. We accept as most important the sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist (also called Communion or The Lord’s Supper). In Baptism we receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and are adopted into God’s family called the Church. In Eucharist, we receive the bread and wine of communion which we believe is the body and blood of Jesus — a way of knowing by faith that Jesus is truly with us and in union (communion) with us. The benefits we receive are the forgiveness of our sins, the strengthening of  our union with Christ and one another, and the foretaste of the heavenly banquet which is our nourishment in eternal life.

What is the mission of the Church?

The mission of the Church is to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ. The Church pursues its mission as it prays an worships, proclaims the Gospel, and promotes justice, peace, and love. The Church carries out its mission through the ministry of all its members.
