Holy Cross Anglican Chapel

About Who We Are:

The Anglican Church reflects the unanimity and singularity of the Apostolic and Early Church, we embrace our orthodox, and catholic traditions as well as newly formed expressions of ancient worship and practice descending from the 5th Edition of the English Missal. The Anglican Church considers itself to be part of the one true holy Catholic Apostolic Church as represented in the Anglican, Roman, and Eastern Orthodox Churches. We preserve apostolic lines of succession that can be traced to the original Apostles who witnessed the Earthly ministry of Jesus Christ.  The Anglican Church represents a return to unity based on the recovery of the essential oneness of the ancient, medieval, and contemporary church.

Five statements and beliefs the Church affirms:

  • The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as "containing all the things necessary for salvation" and as being the rule and ultimate standard of faith.

  • Holy Tradition as past down from the Apostles and the early undivided Church including the first seven oecumenical council of the bishops of Christendom.

  • The Nicene Creed, is our statement of faith.

  • The seven Sacraments of the Church (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders, Matrimony) are God's Word in action (outward signs of inward spiritual grace).

  • All life is sacred and is given by God. As such, abortion or any form of euthanasia (the ending of life by the act of man) is contrary to the will of God and a grave sin against humanity.

“Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day." "(John 6: 53-54 NKJV).

"Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” (Acts 2: 38-39 NKJV).

"Therefore, every teacher of the law who has been instructed about the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old."  (Matthew 13:52).

Arising out of a common desire and hunger to experience the fullness of Christian worship and spirituality, the Anglican Church presents the essential elements in the Christian faith represented historically in thought and practice: We proclaim Christ through Word and Sacrament.
