WHAT WE BELIEVE

We proclaim the whole doctrine, moral teaching, discipline and worship of the Universal Church as traditionally received within the Anglican Communion and articulated in the classical Anglican Formularies (the Thirty-Nine Articles, the 1662 Book of Common Prayer and Ordinal, and the Lambeth Quadrilateral). We have retained, proclaim and celebrate the same Holy Scriptures, Creeds, Councils, moral teachings, Sacraments (I.e. Holy Baptism and Holy Communion) and Orders of Ministry (those of Bishop, Priest and Deacon) as that of the undivided Catholic (Universal or whole) Church of the first Christian Millennium.

  • GOD

    There is one and only one living and true God. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes but without division of nature, essence or being (Deut 6:4-5; Is 45:5-6; 1 Tim 2:5; James 2:19; Article I). 

  • JESUS

    Jesus the Christ is the incarnation of the eternal Son of God. The Good News of Jesus Christ is the Gospel of Life and Salvation through His crucifixion and resurrection for the whole world. All persons are called into a personal relationship with the Living God in Jesus Christ. Salvation is a free gift of God given by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life and the ONLY means of salvation for humankind. (John 1:1-4; John 14:6; John 20:28; Hebrews 1; Articles II, III, IV, XI, XVIII)

  • HOLY SPIRIT

    Christian life is, by definition, new life in the Holy Spirit. We fully understand our Faith and ministry as gifts from God and evidence of the Spirit's power and presence among us. Apart from the Holy Spirit, we cannot be born anew in the Christ and our labors are in vain. (Gal. 5:16-26, John 16:5-15; Acts 5:3-4; Article XII, XIII & XIV). 

  • The BIBLE

    We believe in the primacy and authority of the Holy Bible over and within the Church. We humbly submit ourselves to the transforming power of the Holy Scriptures as Divinely inspired, containing all things necessary to Salvation and believe it is not lawful for the Church to proclaim anything that is contrary to God's Word written. (2 Tim 3:16; Article XI). 

  • FAITH

    We profess the faith once delivered to the Saints. The word "orthodox" means right belief in God and right worship of God. Our faith is defined by the authentic, historic and apostolic and our lives are also defined by seeking to honor and please God through obedience to Him. (Article XIX, XX)
