Our belief system is built first and foremost on the Bible as the primary foundation of our faith and the Nicene and Apostles’ Creeds as outlines of Christian belief. The 39 Articles found in the historic documents of the Book of Common Prayer represent doctrinal interpretations of Scripture from the English Reformation, and the four components of Anglicanism help guide us as we live our faith.
Jesus commands us to, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind…and to love your neighbor as yourself” (Great Commandment, Matthew 22:36-40, NRSV). In addition, he told His disciples to: “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Great Commission, Matthew 28:18-20, NRSV)
We value Scriptural preaching, worship, serving, pursuing spiritual growth, and maturity, nurturing relationships, building authentic community, hospitality, transparency, grace, encouragement, forgiveness, reconciliation, and affirming life and family from the womb to the grave.
