Saint Augustine's identifies itself as an "open church."

By this we mean that all persons are welcome to come and be part of this community wherever they are in their spiritual journey. We seek to be a safe place for skeptics and doubters as well as for convicted believers.

We are an inclusive church in which people from many backgrounds have found common ground. We are a diverse community which discovered in God a oneness greater in significance than our differences. We have come to know that our variety, in truth, reflects the divine comprehensiveness of the God of all created things.

    In Christ,

    from The Rev. Nate Rugh and the Vestry at St. A's
