We believe…

in and preach the HISTORIC GOSPEL of the Resurrected Jesus Christ as preached, summarized and defended by the Church of the first six centuries. These are summed up best in the historic Creeds of the Apostolic Church, the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.

We believe…

in and stand upon the inspired and authoritative WORD OF GOD, the Holy Bible comprising both the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament and the twenty-seven books of the New Testament.

We believe…

the Christian life is a committed walk of DISCIPLESHIP formation with Jesus and his Church. What we don’t believe in is what Dietrich Bonhoeffer called “cheap grace.” Cheap grace is the kind of Christianity that thinks salvation is located in simply being baptized, praying a “sinners prayer” or doing religious works. No Jesus called us to take up our cross daily and bear witness to him.

Jesus told his disciples to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations. That is our mission here in Rhode Island. We are dedicated to forming committed disciples of Jesus, not a casual or boring Christian facade.

We believe…

in authentic Christian COMMUNITY. “Church” is not something we attend; it is not a building; nor is it a service. The Church is the called out redeemed people of God. As a community of disciples, we are called to two things: (1) to be conformed more and more to the image and likeness of Jesus Christ; (2) We are called to share this life-changing message and call others to become disciples of Jesus.

We Worship…

in the HISTORIC EVANGELICAL ANGLICAN TRADITION. Have you ever heard the word evangelical before? Yes? Do you know where it comes from? It actually comes from a movement of passionate men and women of God in 18th century England who were committed to Church renewal. People like William Wilberforce who fundamentally ended slavery in England and John Newton, the composer of Amazing Grace, are among this group.

Ever heard the name John Stott, one of the great evangelical leaders of the 20th century? He was an Anglican. How about theologian J.I. Packer? — Anglican. Oh and some guy named C.S. Lewis? Yes an Anglican too.
