WHAT WE BELIEVE
St. Barnabas Anglican Church is a biblically based church helping individuals grow in a knowledge and love of Jesus Christ. We connect in community to save the lost, transform the found, raise up people to serve and lead with worshipping God at the center of all we do. Our tradition, the Anglican Church in North America, is part of a worldwide expression of Christianity—the Anglican Communion—which has over 80 million members across the globe.
THE NICENE CREED
The summary of our faith is proclaimed weekly in the Nicene Creed (325 AD). It affirms our belief in a Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It also explains the role of each member of the Godhead within Salvation History; God the Father creates, God the Son redeems, and God the Holy Spirit sanctifies. It also explains that the Holy Scriptures, commonly called the Bible, are the Word of God. The Bible contains all things necessary for salvation. It points to the Word incarnate, Jesus Christ, through whom alone we have salvation and access to God the Father.
