Good Shepherd Anglican Church

FAQs

What is Anglican?

As Anglicans, we are part of a global communion of churches established over the centuries by the Church of England. As British Anglicans took their faith around the world, churches were established on every continent that shared the faith and practices of the Church of England – a tradition which has preserved the very best of ancient early church worship while incorporating the sound doctrines that emerged from the Protestant Reformation of the sixteenth century.

What do Anglicans believe?

In order to remain true to the teachings of Christ and the Apostles, Anglicans have historically upheld the Holy Scriptures as God’s Word. We have held to the summary of evangelical beliefs known as the Thirty-Nine Articles of Faith, and we have accepted the three great Christian creeds: the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed, as the fundamental statements of the Christian faith. We celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as commanded by Jesus, and we uphold the historic order of Bishops, Priests and Deacons in the administration of the church’s life and mission.
