1. We are a Church

We are a community of people meeting together to glorify God. We view ourselves as a family seeking to love and serve God, each other and our wider community.

2. 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 risen Son and his death for our sins. The chief work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people to faith in Christ.

3. We are a Bible Church

We believe that the Bible is God’s word and is therefore our authority in all matters of faith and conduct. In all our activities we seek to listen to and obey God’s word. We also aim to proclaim the Bible’s wonderful message of salvation through Jesus Christ to as many people as possible.

4. We are an Anglican (CofE) 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 – the 39 Articles of the Church of England explain these beliefs more fully. All Christians from any denomination are warmly welcome at Holy Cross Church. We unite in Christ and not under any one denominational banner.
