About Us

St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles. We have been proclaiming the love of Christ in the Antelope Valley since 1924. Our mission is to share Christ's unconditional love with the world.

Our Patron Saint

Saint Paul, also known as Paul the Apostle and Paul of Tarsus, was an apostle — though not one of the Twelve Apostles — who taught the gospel of Christ to the first-century world.

Paul was originally dedicated to the persecution of Christians. In Acts of the Apostles, Paul was traveling on the road from Jerusalem to Damascus when the resurrected Christ appeared to him in a great light, striking him blind. After three days his sight was restored, and Paul began to preach that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah, the Son of God.

Fourteen of the twenty-seven books of the New Testament are traditionally attributed to Paul, although only seven are now thought to have been written by Paul himself. His letters continue to be vital roots of the theology, worship, and pastoral life in the Catholic and Protestant traditions of the West, and the Orthodox traditions of the East.

St. Paul is thought to have been beheaded in Rome at the behest of Emperor Nero. He is typically depicted holding a scroll symbolizing the Scriptures, and a sword symbolizing his martyrdom.
