What does the name "Episcopal Church" mean?
"The Episcopal Church" is one branch of the world-wide Anglican Communion number 60 million members in over 100 countries.
It is often described as the "bridge church" because it includes both the Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. It preserves the ancient Catholic faith and sacraments and the historic ministry with Bishops as its chief pastors. ("Episcopal" comes from the Greek word for "bishop.") It is, at the same time, Protestant, focusing on the basic authority of Holy Scripture and the proclamation of the Word of God.
