What We Do
We don’t need to go further than the Bible to understand God’s purpose for us as a Church family. Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church states it this way: "The Great Commandment and the Great Commission make for a Great Church."
The Great Commandment: "Our Worship"
“The most important commandment,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12:29–31)

The Great Commission : "Our Witness"
Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18–20)
The bible is our source of authority and teaching. We are committed to biblical preaching. Week by week, sermons will teach from the text before us. Bible studies provide further teaching for our discipleship programs. Leadership development, evangelism training, and equipping the saints for the ministry are all part of our teaching ministry.
Pastor Peter Teaching
Our theology is evangelical and orthodox. We hold to the Trinitarian, Christ centered, redemption oriented faith of the Bible embodied in the historic ecumenical creeds of the early undivided church: the Nicene Creed, the Apostles’ Creed and the Creed of St. Athanasius. In consort with the Anglican Communion we affirm the Lambeth Quadrilateral, the Thirty-Nine Articles, the Solemn Declaration of 1893 and the Book of Common Prayer.
We hold that the family is the ordained focus of love, intimacy, personal growth and stability for women, men, and children.
All Saints Community Church employs liturgies from around the world, all based on the practice, doctrines and creeds of the Book of Common Prayer, first published in 1552. Our music and praise is enthusiastic and expresses the life, love and grace of our Lord Jesus so that people of all ages are blessed and empowered in worship.
We celebrate weekly Holy Communion available to everyone who loves Jesus.
Following is a Prophetic Word given for All Saints Community Church during the Lenten 2014 prayer vigil
To each other
You are a part of a whole
A branch on My vine
A voice in the choir
A note in a scale
A colour of the rainbow
A lens in the camera of My eye
One of the chords that vibrate to make sound
Part of the wind that howls
A grain of sand on My beach
A leaf on My tree of life
A sister amongst brothers
A brother amongst sisters
You are a parent and a child
An elder and a youngster
You are Mine!
