Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh (PEP) is an organization of clergy and laypersons living and worshiping in the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh, a
part of The Episcopal Church, which is an autonomous
member of the worldwide Anglican Communion. Although we are diverse in our social, political, and theological understandings and passions, we share an unfaltering commitment to the foundation of our Catholic faith: In love, God sent His Son to be our Savior, and all who believe in Christ’s redemptive power, through God’s grace, will have eternal life. We believe that the Holy Spirit continuously leads us to
confront our changing world with the unchanging love of Jesus Christ. We seek a fuller understanding of God and His plan for us through study of
Scripture, honor of tradition, careful application of reason, and acknowledgment of experience. We recognize that, in order to respond to the challenge of the Gospel, our faith must be vitally alive. PEP is wholeheartedly inclusive, and all persons who share our commitment and mission are invited to participate.
