About Us - What We Believe

"This God -- his way is perfect; the word of the Lord proves true; he is a shield for all those who take refuge in him."        - Psalm 18:30

   As Anglican Christians, we believe in the Sacred Scriptures of the Old and the New Testament as they have been summarized in the three historic creeds of the Church (the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian). 

   We believe in the absolute importance of basing our BELIEFS and PRACTICES on God’s revelation of Himself through the Old Testament Law and Prophets, supremely in Jesus Christ, and further explained through the writings of the New Testament. 

 To make over or modify the unchanging truths of God in accordance with the values of the surrounding society and personal judgment present the danger of “making God over” to suit ourselves and creating a “god” of our own making. 
​We especially stress that:
  • Our Lord Jesus Christ is true God and true Man. Jesus’ saving grace has come to us through His Incarnation, His perfect life, and His innocent and representative suffering on the Cross as our Priest and Victim. We believe that the Bible teaches that Jesus died for all people; all need pardon and forgiveness from their many sins and all who are ultimately saved are forgiven only because of Jesus and His Cross. (St John 14:6). 
  • The Resurrection of Our Lord is an objective, real, true, and victorious event and one of the strongest evidences of the truth of the Faith. 
  • God the Holy Spirit works principally through the Word and Sacraments. The Holy Spirit brings people to saving faith and conversion, convinces them of the identity of Jesus Christ and the reality of His work, makes holy the people of God, and brings about true conversion, illumination, and empowerment to serve Him faithfully. 
  • The Lord Jesus intended that the Eucharist (Holy Communion) be the central act of worship each Lord’s Day.
