What We Believe

        Holy Trinity Anglican Church is a mission parish of the United Episcopal Church of North America (UECNA) and is a part of the Missionary Diocese of the East.
 
           The Most Reverend Peter Robinson is the Presiding Bishop of UECNA, and is also Bishop of the Missionary Diocese of the East. The Right Reverend Steven Murrell is Assisting Bishop for the Diocese.

 

          As traditional, orthodox Anglicans, we worship God using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the authorized King James Bible.  We are Biblical in faith, and Anglican in practice.

 

          We are both Catholic and Protestant.  We are Catholic in that we hold the Catholic Faith of the whole and undivided Church from its inception by our Lord.  We are Protestant in that we protest against changes by addition or subtraction from the Faith of the whole and undivided Church.  We believe what has been believed everywhere, always, and by all Christians.
 
        We believe and confess the three ancient creeds of the Church:  the Apostles' Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.  We believe that Holy Scripture is God's written word.  We believe in the genuine power of the sacraments.  We believe that Christ is truly present in the elements in Holy Communion.  We believe in the power of God to heal the sick and broken-hearted.  We believe that loyalty to our Lord is expressed by service to our fellow men.  We believe in the necessity of inward spiritual development and the outward amendment of life of every Christian.  We stand for Biblical faith and morality.  Thus, we ordain only Godly men to Holy Orders and affirm that marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman.
