A basic understanding of our beliefs can be found in the Apostles Creed:
We believe in God, the Father Almighty
Maker of heaven and earth
And in his Son, Jesus Christ
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate
was crucified, dead and buried.
He descended to the dead.
The third day he rose from the dead
and ascended into heaven.
From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy universal church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body
and the life everlasting.
To understand more about what we believe, there are three defining characteristics about us:
We are Evangelical. We believe God speaks to us today through his word, the Bible. We believe his message has life-changing implications for all people in all places.
We are Protestant. We believe we all deserve judgement for the wrong we have done, but that Jesus has died in our place. We believe that we are saved from this judgement not through our own good works but through trusting in him. We believe that there is no other way to be saved apart from Christ.
We are Anglican. We are led by our senior minister, who is advised by a Parish Council made up of members from our church. We are part of a wider and global Anglican fellowship. We strive to be ordered in our gatherings so that what we believe can be clear (1 Corinthians 14:40).
