Who We Are
About Christ Church
We are a community, forgiven and loved by God, joyfully called to the work of reconciliation. Known throughout Cape Girardeau as "the Red Door Church" by those we serve, our mission is to share God's love and grace.
About the Diocese of Missouri
Christ Episcopal Church belongs to The Episcopal Diocese of Missouri. Our bishop is the Right Reverend Deon K. Johnson.
The mission of the church, as stated in the Book of Common Prayer’s catechism (p. 855), is "to restore all people to unity with God and each other in Christ."
As part of that mission, we’re following Jesus into loving, liberating and life-giving relationship with God, with each other and with the earth as the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement. We seek every day to love God with our whole heart, mind and soul, and to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matt. 22:36-40).
