What We Believe

As part of the Church, we believe what is expressed in the baptismal Apostles’ Creed and the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed, commonly called the Nicene Creed.

Nicene Creed

We believe in God the Father Almighty, maker of Heaven and Earth and of all things, visible and invisible.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost and of the Virgin Mary, and was made man; he was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered, died, and was buried; and the third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father; from thence he shall come again, with glory, to judge the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end.

We believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord and Giver of life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spake by the prophets.

And we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church; we acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins; we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. AMEN.

We believe that we are surrounded by an invisible cloud of witnesses—the saints who accompany us on our journey.

We believe that our worship ought to reflect the mystery of God and the beauty of holiness and that reverence goes hand-in-hand with quiet intimacy.

We believe that God’s mercy is to be shared lavishly and with respect for the individual journey of each pilgrim.

Our doors are open to all. Whoever you are, from wherever you come, you are always welcome here.
