We are Anglican Christians – part of the Episcopal Church and in communion with Anglican Churches throughout the world who trace their history back to the Reformation in England. Rooted in historic Anglicanism we teach faithful adherence to the Scriptures, the need for repentance, faith in Jesus Christ and the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit.

Our Mission:

“Growing in Christ Together through Worship, Fellowship, Ministry, Stewardship!”

The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd strives to know Christ Jesus as the Good Shepherd of God, to grow up in Him as his disciples, and to share him with all.

We are Disciples making Disciples, making Community – Growing in Christ together!

We encounter Christ in our worship, classes, Small Group studies, care of one another, and ministry to our Lake Charles community and beyond.

Our Mission & History  

Greetings and welcome to our web site, and hopefully, our fellowship! Our congregation’s heritage goes back over 123 years of life and ministry in the city of Lake Charles, Louisiana.
