What We Believe

Our church is part of both the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada; we embrace the mission statements and faith declarations of both bodies as presented on their respective websites.

Briefly put, here is what we believe:

God is best revealed to us not in human power or glory, but rather in God’s son, Jesus Christ, who became fully, vulnerably human and lived among us because of God’s unending, unconditional love for all humanity.

Jesus came to bring the news of God’s love to all, but particularly the poor, the sick, the oppressed and the outcast.  

To show us what selfless love looks like, and to defeat death for us all, Jesus (though innocent) died a criminal’s death on a cross; after three days, Jesus rose triumphant from the grave to eternal life. Because of this, all of us, God’s beloved children, are promised eternal life, too.
