We are Christians. This means that we believe that Jesus is God’s Son and that through His life, death and resurrection, He has brought healing to our broken world and given us the power to follow His good example.
We are members of the Anglican Communion. This means that we are a part of a
worldwide fellowship of Christians who are united by our historical ties to the Church of England, our form of worship based on the Book of Common Prayer, and our system of church government which is ordered around the biblical idea of an overseer, called a bishop. St. Paul’s Church is a parish in the Anglican Diocese of San Joaquin of the Anglican Church in North America. As such, it is a constituent member of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
We believe in One God: the Father who created us and all things, the Son who redeems us from sin and death, the Holy Spirit who renews and sanctifies us.
We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the Word of God and to contain all things necessary for salvation; and we accept the Apostles‘ and Nicene Creeds as basic yet sufficient statements of our beliefs.
If you have questions about the Christian faith we are eager to talk to you. You can contact any of our clergy at the church offices.
