About our beliefs
WE ARE CATHOLIC
We are CATHOLIC in that we embrace the definition of the Christian Faith as expressed in the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds; we recognize the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion as primary channels of God’s grace; and we believe that the faith once delivered to the saints is preserved through apostolic succession and teaching.
WE ARE REFORMED
We are REFORMED in that we acknowledge the primacy of Holy Scripture in matters of faith and practice; we preach the “one, full, perfect and sufficient sacrifice” of the Son of God to atone for the sins of the world; and we recognize justification of faith in Jesus’ atoning death.
WE ARE EVANGELICAL
We are EVANGELICAL in that we believe the primary work of the Church is proclaiming to all people the saving work of God in Christ; and we believe that the Church “equips the saints” for a ministry of reconciliation at home, work, school and in the marketplace.
WE ARE ANGLICAN
We are ANGLICAN in that our expression of worship is guided by the the Book of Common Prayer and our theology is expressed in the 39 Articles of Religion.
WE ARE WELCOMING
We are convinced that God's love is for everyone- no exceptions. There is no sin, no struggle, no past or present circumstance, that lies beyond the reach of God the Father's redemptive work through the life, death, and resurrection of his son, Jesus Christ, applied to us by our Lord, the Holy Spirit. In fact, in the last book of the Scriptures, the book of Revelation, Saint John depicts heaven as a place where humans are worshiping God forever "from every tribe, tongue, and nation." If this is God's vision for the future, it is our vision for the present.
