MISSION

The Mission of St. Andrew’s Church is to extend God’s transforming love and grace by being disciples making disciples.

BELIEFS

St. Andrew’s is passionate about the Father’s radical love for the world.

We embrace Jesus Christ as the one true savior.

We are anchored in the Bible as the authoritative and unchanging word of God.

We submit to the Anglican 39 Articles, the Apostles Creed and the Nicene Creed as our statements of the Christian faith.

We submit to our Values as an expression of what Jesus Christ has done for us.

As Christians, we believe that we are nourished by living an integrated life of three streams: scripture, spirit and sacrament.

  • Scripture – highlights our adherence to the evangelical stream which upholds the Bible as God’s inspired word that contains all things necessary for salvation and serves as our authoritative guide for faith and life.
  • Spirit – we believe the Holy Spirit operates today as he has done throughout history, administering the fullness of God in and through the church today.
  • Sacrament – living a sacramental life underscores our belief in the ongoing importance of the one, true, holy, historic and world-wide Christian faith by incorporating the liturgical rhythms of our worship into our everyday lives.
