Our Beliefs

Our Statement of Faith captures what we believe, creating a foundation for why we do what we do as a church. Our primary passion and central influence in our life together is the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Statement of Faith

While the Bible is our only infallible rule of faith and practice, we are also committed, and accountable to a specific statement of faith that represents a summary of biblical teachings on key points of doctrine essential to the beliefs, conduct, and witness of our churches. We hold to the Church’s historic statements of faith in the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds, as well as the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion and the Book of Common Prayer, which together form the doctrinal foundations of the Anglican Church.

Treasuring Jesus Together

Why do we treasure Jesus together?

The heart of Christianity is the good news that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, died for our rejection of God, rose from death eternally triumphant over all that is evil. This good news means there is now no condemnation for those who put their trust in Jesus Christ, only the expectation of eternal life and joy.
