As an evangelical church we are defined by these three convictions.
1. We are a Christian Church
We believe in one God who has revealed himself supremely through his Son, the Lord Jesus. To know God the Father, we must put our trust in his Son and his death for our sins. The chief work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people to faith in Christ.
2. We are an Evangelical Church
We believe that the Bible is God’s word and is therefore our authority in all matters of faith and conduct. See the section below for our basis of faith which expresses much of what we believe. In all our activities we seek to listen to and obey God’s word in Scripture. We also aim to proclaim the Bible’s wonderful message of salvation through Christ to as many people as possible.
3. We are an Anglican Church
We stand in the tradition of the Anglican Reformers of the 16th Century, affirming with them the great truths which were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation, such as the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, and salvation in Christ alone. All Christians from any denomination are warmly welcome with us. We unite in Christ and not under any one denominational banner.
We are also part of the North Cotswold Gospel Partnership,
“For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.” 2 Corinthians 4: 5 - Verse of the year
