All Saints Episcopal Parish
All Saints Episcopal Parish is an inclusive and welcoming church in the heart of Hoboken.
We welcome all people into our parish family encourage visitors to join us for worship on Sunday. We are locate at the corner of 7th and Washington Streets in Hoboken.
Through worship of God, creative service, outreach, mission, music, challenging education for discipleship, deeds rather than words which proclaim our beliefs, and care and concern for the people of our community, this congregation seeks the welfare of the city and its people.
All Saints is a progressive Christian community committed to living into our calling to follow the life and teachings of Jesus. We are members of the Episcopal Church and the global Anglican Communion. The Anglican Communion is the third largest Christian denomination in the world. We believe in essential doctrines of the Church, and we believe in participating in the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist. We are also, however, a church that encourages spiritual exploration, questioning, and a wide breadth of belief. You do not have to be an Episcopalian to join or visit All Saints.
We welcome people from all different religious traditions, and non any given Sunday, our congregation might include
•Believers and agnostics,
•Conventional Christians and questioning skeptics,
•People of all ages,
•The whole spectrum of sexual and gender identity,
•Those who hope for a better world and those who struggle to hold onto hope,
•Diversity of race and ethnicity, all classes and abilities.
All Saints has always been a place at the forefront of progressive thinking about Christianity, social justice, and radical hospitality. The Parish has joined together in “being the Church of Jesus,” called to practice the gifts of freedom, justice, peace, charity, hope, and the love of God that is the life and teachings of Jesus through worship and action.
Our congregation welcomes others who are seeking to follow the path to God found in the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.
Our congregation respects people who have found other ways to God and we acknowledge that their ways are as true for them as Jesus is true for us.
Our congregation shares bread and wine in Jesus’ name, just as Jesus did with his friends, telling them to always do it in remembrance of him.
We do not insist that people become like us in order to be acceptable but invite people of all sorts to participate in our spiritual life and our social life.
Our congregation thinks that the way we behave toward one another is more important than the way we talk about our beliefs.
We value questioning more than answering because we find more promise in the quest for understanding than we do in absolute certainty.
We form community to equip ourselves for the work of justice and peace for all people and to bring hope to the oppressed and the lonely.
All Saints is a member of the Center for Progressive Christianity
We believe that we are called forth to be the body of Christ in the world.
