An Episcopal Identity

As an Episcopal school, we trust in the unconditional and indiscriminate love of God revealed to us in the person of Jesus Christ.

Our Episcopal Identity Statement

A Christian Community

Porter-Gaud is a Christian community that is upheld by the basic principles of the Baptismal Covenant. This Covenant, as expressed in the Book of Common Prayer, is founded upon the belief that God has revealed himself in the person of Jesus Christ as a triune community of love - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - and that human beings, made in the divine image, are created for communion with this love.

From this foundation, the Baptismal Covenant calls individuals and institutions to be incarnate instruments of God’s love and grace.

True to its Episcopal identity, Porter-Gaud thus seeks to be a community that celebrates and worships God as the center of life and loves our neighbors as ourselves, serving Christ in all persons, striving for justice and peace among all people, and respecting the dignity of every human being.
