We believe in the classic, orthodox understanding of God as revealed by the Holy Scriptures: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus is the only begotten, eternal Son of God, who was crucified for our sins, and raised for our justification. We proclaim that Jesus is Lord, and that he is the way, the truth, and the life.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that, in accordance with the promises of God, when a person believes that Jesus is Lord, he or she is given the gift of the Holy Spirit for salvation. In addition, we believe that each believer is given spiritual gifts by the Holy Spirit so that each believer can effectively advance the Kingdom of God.
We hold the 66 books of the Old and New Testament to be the word of God, and the highest authority in the church.
We believe that salvation, a reconciled relationship with God that leads to eternal life, is by God's grace through faith and not by works.
The visible Church of Christ is a local congregation where the word of God is proclaimed and the sacraments of Baptism and The Lord's Supper are faithfully administered. The church throughout the world is sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Return of Jesus & the Resurrection of the Dead
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
The Anglican Church is the third largest expression of Christianity with around 80 million participants worldwide. Historically, it is traced through the 16th century reforms in the Church of England. Today, Anglicanism can be diverse in expression, but is unified through orthodox belief and common prayer.
