What We Believe at St. Edward's:

You Can Become the Joyful Soul You Were Meant to Be!

No matter who you are, or who you have been, Christ's grace, love and mercy can transform you, bringing you joy and peace, now and eternally.

The heart of our faith is that all people are called to new life in Christ. God’s transformative love brings true joy and peace to your soul. We believe that by continuing the transformative traditions of ancient Christians, we can find refuge from the chaos of our modern world, and connect with the true Light. Rather than conforming to the world around us, we strive to conform our lives more and more to Christ’s perfect life.

“And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.” (Acts 2:42)

We believe that the Holy Scriptures contain “all things necessary for salvation.” Likewise, the traditions of worship, prayer and the teachings of the fathers and doctors of the Church through the centuries inform how we understand and appropriate the Scriptures. We affirm the seven Ecumenical Councils of the undivided Church as the standard of our doctrine.

We believe that Christ is really and truly present in the Eucharist, but we refrain from defining the precise mode of this presence.

As Anglicans, we stand within one of the three great branches of the Church, alongside Roman Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy. Even in the midst of the Reformation, Anglicans never abandoned the Church’s Creeds, her Sacraments, or her three-fold order of ministry (of Bishops, Priests, and Deacons) in the sacramental and doctrinal succession deriving from Christ Himself through His Apostles.

The Nicene Creed

"What we believe" is succinctly stated in the Nicene Creed, which we proclaim each Sunday during worship:

I believe in One God,

the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth, And of all things visible and invisible: 

And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God; Begotten of his Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of very God; Begotten, not made; Being of one substance with the Father; By whom all things were made: Who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven,  And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, And was made man: And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; He suffered and was buried: And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures: And ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of the Father: And he shall come again, with glory, to judge both the quick and the dead; Whose kingdom shall have no end. 

And I believe in the Holy Ghost, The Lord, and Giver of Life, Who proceedeth from the Father and the Son; Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified; Who spake by the Prophets: 

And I believe One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church: I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins: And I look for the Resurrection of the dead: And the Life of the world to come. Amen.
