As the church, we commit ourselves to making justice and inclusivity a reality in this congregation and the world. When we are baptized we promise to love our neighbors as ourselves and uphold the dignity of every human being. People of any sexual orientation or gender identity can pray, sing, lead, and minister in every way in our church.

Whether you are just visiting, curious about Christianity, looking for a church home, or searching for a community that will embrace you as you are, we welcome you warmly and unconditionally.

Everyone is welcome at God’s Table. Come share your journey with us.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be Jesus Christ’s heart, hands and feet to our neighbors no matter where they are on their journey of faith.

Core Values

To accomplish our mission, St. Martin-in-the-Fields bases its decisions and actions on the following core values:


We see the purpose of our service as sharing the abundance of our resources, talents and love with each other in our community, country and around the world.


We provide Christian education for all ages throughout the week and on Sundays allowing us to deepen our understanding of God’s word and actions in history and in our lives. Our day school provides an exemplary and nurturing Christian learning environment.


With God’s grace we welcome with respect, empathy and awareness all whom God has created. We extend hospitality and compassionate understanding to all people and their ideas.


We are committed to trusting in God, inspired by the Spirit, persevering in hope, enriched by the Sacraments and worship style of The Episcopal Church.


We belong to an evolving and diverse community that expresses forgiveness through the generosity of the Holy Spirit, carrying out Christ’s work of reconciliation.
