What We Believe

Our fundamental belief is that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.  We consider this to be the belief held by the Apostles and by all true believers who have followed them in time.

We hold that the true teaching concerning God and His Son Jesus Christ has been handed down to us by the writers of both the Old and the New Testaments of the Bible.  As servants of God and in some cases eyewitnesses to his acts, they were uniquely equipped and empowered by the Holy Spirit to present the story of God’s redemption of his creation to a world blinded by human pride.

We consider the Scriptures to be the supreme authority in the Church today.  We also acknowledge and hold fast to “what has been believed everywhere, always, and by all” in the Christian Church.  This teaching is summed up in three Creeds:  the Apostles’, the Nicene, and the Athanasian.  The Creeds ensure we read and understand Scripture as the Apostles did.

Finally, as heirs of the world-wide missionary efforts of the Church of England, we affirm the Thirty Nine Articles of Religion.  They distill the sound teaching that was reasserted during the Protestant Reformation and frame our theology.

At Grace Anglican Community, we seek to make both our teaching and our living reflect the Anglican Way:  Reformed, Catholic (universal), and Spirit-filled.
