St. John’s
We are an Episcopal Church in the Anglican tradition. 
Our faith is very relevant in our contemporary world. Along with the Bible and Christian traditions passed down through the church, our beliefs and actions are informed by the Apostle’s Creed, the earliest confession of the Christian faith, and the Episcopal Church’s Baptismal Covenant, our unique understanding of how Christians, both individually and corporately, follow the way of Jesus. And we are a sacramental church, and we celebrate Holy Eucharist (Communion) during our Sunday worship services, along with the other sacraments of the Church at appropriate times of the year.
 

The Baptismal Covenant

We promise to continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers.  We promise to persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever we fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord.  We promise to proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ; to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself.  We promise to strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.

Our History

St. John’s has come a long way since we began meeting
in 1982 in a double-wide on Cemetery Road! Today we are a vital parish dedicated to serving God and the surrounding Lake Texoma area through prayer, worship, servanthood and yes, a bit of fun, too! 
When you come and visit us, you’ll find a
friendly family atmosphere where you are valued, welcomed and loved.  At St. John’s, people know you by name and miss you when you’re not here on Sunday.  If you are seeking a church where you can deepen your walk with Christ and with others, we urge you to come visit us.  Our doors are open and we can’t wait to meet you!

The Bishop’s Committee (vestry) serves a three-year term as elected leaders of St. John’s.  Bishop’s Committee members work collaboratively with one another and the Vicar to create a vision and plan of action that reflects God’s dream for the congregation.  The Bishop’s Committee also functions much like the board of any nonprofit, with responsibility for finances and management of property and human resources.  Members of the Bishop’s Committee balance their role in discerning God’s mission for the church with sound stewardship of church property and resources.
