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
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."
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)
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.
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.
Saints Community Church employs liturgies from around the world, all
based on the practice, doctrines and creeds of the Book of Common
Prayer, published in 1662. 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.
