SO, WHO ARE WE?

SAINT MARK'S has served the English-speaking community of Guadalajara since the 1960s. It is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion (known as Episcopal in the United States), the third largest Christian group in the world. As for faith and practice, we usually seek the "via media," the middle way, a tradition that dates back to Queen Elizabeth I in the 16th century. It means that in worship we share the liturgical forms of the traditional church and that through the centuries we have adopted theological viewpoints similar to mainline Protestant groups. At Saint Mark's you find Anglicans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Lutherans, Baptists, and others all happily worshiping together.


OUR CORE VALUES:

The Bible: We're not Biblical literalists. We know scripture comes through centuries of transmission and development. However, the Bible, interpreted with reason and in light of tradition, forms the basis of our faith.
 

Worship: We celebrate Holy Communion weekly in the liturgy of the historical church and welcome all baptized Christians to partake. 
 

Tolerance: You'll never hear us say what you "must" believe. We respect the views of all who seek to follow Christ. 
 

Inclusiveness: We believe all God's people are created in His image and are loved by Him. We can do no less than love and respect everyone.
 

Social justice: Redemption is not only a personal matter but also involves social institutions and the ecological health of the world.
 

Outreach: Caring for those in need is basic to our faith.
