Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is at the centre of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.

The Trinity

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.

The Separation

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.

The Reconciliation

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.

The Church

We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.

Anglican tradition affirms three historic creeds: the Apostles’ Creedthe Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.

The 39 Articles of Religion were a foundational document for the Church of England during the Reformation.

Current work at General Synod is shaped by the Five Marks of Mission, used widely throughout the Anglican Communion.
