We are 50,000 people gathered into 111 congregations and 10 campus ministries throughout 38 counties in the central part of North Carolina, from Iredell County to Edgecombe County, and from Caswell County to Scotland County. On an average Sunday, more than 15,000 gather to worship across our diocese.
Our vision as a diocese is to be a community of disciples committed to following Jesus Christ into the dream of God for us and for all creation, in Becoming Beloved Community.
Our mission is simple: Empowered by the Holy Spirit, the Diocese of North Carolina seeks to live God's dream by making disciples and making a difference. We do so by practicing The Way of Love and building joyful congregations and other communities of faith into Becoming Beloved Community, centered on the Gospel, in the communion of the Episcopal Church. We go forth to offer God's reconciling love to all persons, with special concerns for the unchurched, young people and those on the margins of society.
Currently, we our exploring 21st-century Galilee, the pluralistic, ever-changing modern world in which we live. In this modern mission field, both our diocese and our local congregations seek out new ways to go out into their communities, doing church in new ways, meeting people where they are and sharing the love of Christ. We do this by intentionally sharing our faith, seeking out new communities in which to minister, and finding new ways to work with our local neighbors. Sometimes we also engage in special initiatives, like engaging our young people in the work of reconciliation and supporting our neighbors who work in the agricultural fields.
