What We Believe

Anglicans have a very broad understanding of who and what the church is, and you’ll find that there is a variety of belief and expression at St. George’s. A point of unity, though, is that we believe that Jesus is the son of God and the divine word of God who, in a moment in history, became incarnate as a human being and lived among us as Jesus of Nazareth. We believe that he died on the cross, and that he has forever conquered the powers of death, evil, pain and sin through the power of God’s undying love. We believe that he rose from the dead, and we seek to know and experience what this means in our lives. We trust that we now live with the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ own Spirit that unites us with Creator God, inspiring us to love and serve one another and the world. We encounter this beautiful triune God in our worship and sacraments (the presence of God made real in ordinary things) of Holy Eucharist (Greek for “thanksgiving”) and in baptism.
