The purpose of Grace Anglican Church is to serve as a church which undertakes, maintains, encourages and provides for the public and private worship of Almighty God and his Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, in communion with the beliefs and traditions of Global Anglicansim, as it is resident in the Anglican Church in North America. We commit to:
- Conduct worship of our Lord Jesus Christ within a Triune God
- Teach, Preach, and Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ
- Undertake and maintain the liturgy and practices of our beliefs
- Provide for pastoral care, discipleship and Christian community
- Serve God within the Body of Christ and beyond as we are called
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy spirit.
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential, and that salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ as savior and lord.
