What We Believe

As part of the Worldwide Anglican Communion, we join Episcopalians and Anglicans all over the world in worshiping the Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and in meaningful fellowship with all Christians around the world.

As Anglicans, our worship is led and shaped by the Book of Common Prayer. We also hold to the teachings found therein. Particularly responsible for our formation is the Catechism found in the 1979 Book of Common Prayer which can be downloaded by CLICKING HERE.

We are also a member of the American Anglican Council whose goal is to build up and affirm Christian orthodoxy within the Anglican Communion. We affirm their statement of faith that:

  • The Bible is the unchanging, authoritative word of God.
  • Jesus Christ alone is the full revelation of God.
  • Christians are called to obey and love Jesus Christ and conform our lives to his example and teaching.
  • Congregations are called to corporate worship, discipleship, and mission.
  • The mission of the Church includes evangelism (sharing our Christian faith with others) and serving those in need, both locally and globally.
  • We affirm the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds and the historic statements of Anglicanism.
  • We affirm the Jerusalem Declaration of confessional Anglican belief.
  • All human life is a gift from God and is to be protected from conception to natural death.
  • We oppose prejudice and renounce any false notion of inclusivity that denies that all are sinners who need to repent.
  • Marriage is between one man and one woman and they are to be faithful to one another; single Christians are called to celibacy.
