St. Augustine’s is a member parish of the Anglican Province of Christ the King. We have specific beliefs according to our background and history, and what we feel is a valid process of theological system and proven record. In saying so, we also hasten to regard the Christian churches around us as brothers and sisters in the faith. Jesus did not create denominations, but One Church under Himself as head. There are not two churches, or twenty, or two thousand. We are deeply committed to the New Command of Jesus, given at the close of the Last Supper: “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” John 13:34-35
While we express our distinctiveness with a happy abandon, loving the liturgy and valuing our heritage, we know that we are one church among many, and that the love of Jesus produces saints of all kinds, worship in various modes, and God’s beauty fashioned from a mosaic of many very different followers of His Son.
