To be an Anglican is not to embrace a distinct version of Christianity, but a distinct way of being a “Mere Christian.” We strive to believe “that which has been believed everywhere, always and by all.” We belong to a world-wide Anglican Communion, constituting the third largest Christian body globally.
Anglicanism has often been described as the via media, the “middle way” between Catholicism and Protestantism. We understand Anglicanism as a reform movement in the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church that is calling the entire Church back to her roots. During the first centuries, the Church was not only sacramental and liturgical, but also lived in the power of the Spirit under the guidance of the Scriptures. Words like “charismatic,” (spirit-filled) “evangelical,” (bible-guided) or “catholic” (tradition-formed) should not be labels for various churches but rather adjectives that describe the very nature of what God intended the Church to be.
We hold to the ancient faith that was passed down by the Apostles and practiced in the early Church. This faith was summarized in the Nicene Creed and the Apostle’s Creed.
We worship using the Book of Common Prayer, a book that includes scripture readings, prayers, and daily liturgies. Our beliefs are expressed in how we worship.
Our congregation includes members from a wide variety of Christian churches. We don’t all agree on every theological issue, but we serve one Lord, Jesus Christ and are united through one baptism into God’s family. Together we strive to life in accordance with the Scriptures by the power of the Holy Spirit.
