Our Beliefs

Scripture

The Bible is God’s Word written. The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired, and contain all things necessary to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

Sacraments

The Sacraments of the Church are God’s Word in action. The Dominical Sacrament of Baptism and Holy Communion are ordained by our Lord Jesus Christ for all Christians.

Worship

The written Word and the holy Sacraments are joined together and rightly proclaimed in the classic editions of The Book of Common Prayer.  (Editions 1662, U.S. 1928, Scottish 1929, and the Canadian 1962.)

Creeds

The Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds are to be taught in the Church and to be received by the Faithful.

Marriage

Christian marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman.

Ordained Ministry

The Ordained Ministry of the Church is reserved to godly men.
