- We are Biblical. We believe that the Bible containing the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments is the inspired Word of God and the ultimate authority in matters of faith and practice. We believe that God’s Word does His work in His people by His Spirit.
- We are Creedal. We uphold the teachings of the historic faith of the Christian Church as expressed in the classic Christian Creeds (Apostles’, Nicene, Athanasian).
- We are Confessional. We subscribe to the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion as the doctrinal articulation of our English Reformed (Anglican) confession (Printable Doctrinal Summaries).
- We are Missional. We believe that our corporate mission as an evangelical congregation was commanded by our Lord Jesus and is recorded in Matthew 28:18-20. Therefore, we seek to glorify God by introducing men, women, and children to Jesus as Savior and by building them up as our Lord’s disciples with a continual focus on the gospel.
- We are Communal. We value gathering weekly in genuine fellowship around the Lord’s Table and for the preaching of the Word from the Bible for our spiritual nurturing as the forever family of God, and we acknowledge the truth of the universal Church as the Body of Christ.
- We are Liturgical. We come together as the Lord’s Assembly to be served by our Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit by serving one another with our gifts and resources, which fulfills the law of love toward God and neighbors (Acts 2:42-47; Matthew 22:36-47; Romans 13:8-10). This is our reasonable worship (Romans 12). We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer with a view to the theological foundation of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer.
- We value radiating the image and likeness of our Creator as fully revealed in the person and work of Jesus Christ, and we are grateful to have the enabling Spirit and Jesus’s example to grow into the fullness of this image for significance in our daily lives.
