We are a Christian church, which means we love and trust in Jesus as our king and rescuer.
We are an Anglican church, which means we have the Bible as the supreme authority in what we believe and do. It also means we believe that the Anglican Book of Common Prayer (1662) and The Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion are excellent expressions of what the Bible teaches us about God, about people, and how to live as Christians. Below is a summary of what we believe, but the best way to get to know us is to come and talk to us!
We believe in:
- The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
- The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
- The universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity since the fall, rendering men and women subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
- The conception of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit and his birth by the virgin Mary.
- Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death, as our representative and substitute, of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
- The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
- The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting him or her repentance towards God, and faith in Jesus Christ.
- The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
- The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
