What We Believe

About God

We believe that there is one God eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is infinitely good, wise, all-knowing and all-powerful. We believe that God the Father creates and sustains His creation, God the Son became a man to redeem His people through His life, death, and resurrection, and God the Holy Spirit helps Christian believers to grow to be more holy.  God Himself saves us from the guilt of our sins and gives us new life!

About the Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s Word to us with one main message that Jesus Christ, God’s Son, became human in order to reconcile us to God.  His life, death on the cross, and resurrection from the dead took our deserved punishment and gave us forgiveness from God the Father. The Bible contains everything we need to believe about God and how we should live. We believe that the Bible is completely true and has no errors.

About Our Statements of Faith

We subscribe to three of the ancient Creeds of the Christian Church. A creed is a summary of our beliefs explaining the Bible’s teaching about God and our relationship with Him. The Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed, spell out exactly the doctrine which we hold in common with all of Christianity. These Creeds are faithful to the Scriptures in proclaiming the One Triune God and the work of God to restore our relationships with Him.  Our bishops and pastors hold to the 39 Articles of Religion which were written by the Church of England in the 16th century.

About our worship and liturgy

We believe that our lives are centered around the worship of God. The greatest commandment given by Jesus is to, “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” So, we join together on Sunday morning to pray, make a general confession of our sins, sing praise to Him, hear the Bible, and learn from its teaching. We use liturgical services found in the 2005 Reformed Episcopal Book of Common Prayer, designed after the 1662 version from the Church of England. Liturgy means following an ordered structure for the worship service.
