My Convictions

  • A belief in the Holy Scriptures as divine revelation, inerrantly inspired, by God, carrying the full measure of His authority, containing all things necessary to salvation, and to be submitted to in all matters of faith and practice of life.
  • A belief in the One Saviour of mankind, Jesus Christ, who in His person is both fully God and fully man; of one substance with the Father as regards his Godhead, and at the same time of one substance with us as regards his manhood.
  • A belief in the perfect obedience of Christ, His true and actual suffering, His substitutionary and atoning death on the cross, and His bodily resurrection and ascension as the only means given for our salvation and reconciliation with God.
  • A belief in faith alone as the only grounds for the merits of Christ being imputed to us for our justification before God (justification by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone).
  • A belief in the consummate return of Jesus Christ in glory to judge the living and the dead, and a belief in the bodily resurrection from the dead of all people and their entrance into either eternal damnation or everlasting blessedness.
  • A belief in the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church as those souls that have been redeemed entirely by the work of Christ and called out of bondage into freedom, out of darkness into light, out of error into truth, out of death into eternal life.
  • A belief that the visible church is best organized under the historic and biblical offices of Bishop, Priest and Deacon; and that the church exists to worship the Triune God and to lift up the Saviour Jesus Christ before all people through the faithful preaching and teaching of the Gospel, through prayer, and through the faithful administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (also known as The Holy Communion or the Eucharist).
  • A belief in the Historic creeds and formularies of the Church[1] as accurate representations of the essence of the Christian faith, and in the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Anglican Church as a coherent and concise expression of Anglican doctrine and the Jerusalem Declaration
