Apostolic Succession Of the Christian Episcopal Church Diocese of Seattle from St. James

"I myself am satisfied about you, my brothers, that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to instruct one another. But on some points I have written to you very boldly by way of reminder, because of the grace given me by God to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles in the priestly service of the gospel of God, so that the offering of the Gentiles may be acceptable, sanctified by the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:14-16

The Christian Episcopal Church has apostolic succession from three of the Apostles. The church has apostolic succession from St. Peter through the Church of Rome. It also has apostolic succession from St. John through Lyons and from St. James through Jerusalem.

Transcriber's note:
The list is from the Diocese of Dallas' online. The transcriber attempted to spell each name correctly, but due to its diminutive printing, it was difficult to see a few of the letters. There are times some of the names may have an incorrect spelling. This was by accident.
