Redeemer Anglican Church upholds the faith that is contained in the Holy Scriptures and has been received and carried on by the historic Christian Church for centuries. A summary of our faith can be found in the historic statements of the church including the three creeds of the undivided church (Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian) and the Anglican Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion. We also affirm The Jerusalem Declaration.
At the heart of what we believe is the atoning work of Jesus Christ on the cross. It is through his grace offered to us through his sacrificial death and glorious resurrection that we are given forgiveness and new life.
The form of the Nicene Creed for the Anglican Church in North America is the original text as adopted by the Councils of Nicaea (325 AD) and Constantinople (381 AD).
WE BELIEVE in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.
WE BELIEVE in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father.
Through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven:
by the power of the Holy Spirit
he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.
On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.
WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
He has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.
