            All Saints is a Christ-centered community of believers who worship through Prayer, Holy Communion, Scripture and Liturgy.  We believe in the forgiveness of sins, resurrection of the dead and life everlasting made possible by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord, the Son of God.  We honor our Savior's charge to help those in spiritual and temporal need by following the traditional Biblical values and teachings. 

 

    We use the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible, and our Liturgy conforms to the 1928 American version of the historic Anglican Book of Common Prayer. We are a member church of the Anglican Diocese of the Living Word. We adhere to the fullness of Scripture, the historic Creeds, the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, and the Jerusalem Declaration.

 

      All Saints is a family-based congregation that welcomes all who wish to worship in a peaceful, prayerful atmosphere.  If you do not have a church home, we invite you to worship with us each Sunday.

  

 

Declaration of Principles

 

As the Apostolic Church brought both Jewish and pagan peoples to Christ, WE DECLARE that the Church of today must be a Church on Mission, reaching out to non-believers and neo-pagans with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

WE FURTHER DECLARE that we cannot and will not accept any act that would weaken or compromise the tradition that we have received in regard to any of the following principles which we hold to be essential to an unimpaired relationship with Christ’s One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church:

 

1.         The authority of the HOLY SCRIPTURES as inerrant Word of God, as summarized by the Creeds, taught from the Fathers, and defined in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, the King James Version being the standard in the English language.

 

2.         The Nicene and Apostles’ CREEDS as binding on every member of the Church to a specific personal commitment and conviction.

 

3.         HOLY BAPTISM as ordained by Christ, so set forth in the Book of Common Prayer, as the seal of our Salvation, and Confirmation by a bishop in the apostolic line wherein we receive the strengthening gifts of the Holy Spirit in the Apostolic tradition.

 

4.         The HOLY COMMUNION validly celebrated by a bishop of the Apostolic line, or by a priest ordained by such a bishop, and properly received by those confirmed or ready and desiours to be confirmed, although Communion will not be refused to Christians of other traditions.

 

5.         The HOLY ORDERS of Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, restricted to males by the universal practice of the Holy Catholic Church, and as intended by the Book of Common Prayer.

 

6.         The integrity of the EPISCOPATE in its sacramental functions and, according to the Apostolic model, as evangelists, guardians of the faith, and caring shepherds of the flock, placing these changes above the administrative responsibilities that have so often caused mischief in the churches of former years.

 

7.         The historic Book of Common Prayer is used as both a common liturgy and a doctrinal standard.  We worship according to the 1928 American edition of the Book of Common Prayer of the 1962 Canadian edition, respecting that liturgical expression established by Archbishop Thomas Cranmer in 1549, and the 1552 version as set forth by the act of uniformity allowing also for other national equivalents so far as the faith is kept entire by them.

 

We give our witness to unbelievers and to the many who claim the name of Christ for themselves while setting aside Our Lord’s own words about Himself:  that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that no man can come to the Father but by Him.
