Church of the Messiah is an evangelical Anglican church. We seek to be a biblically faithful and orthodox church within the evangelical stream of the Anglican Way of following Jesus. This is the stream of Thomas Cranmer, Nicholas Ridley and Hugh Latimer; of William Wilberforce, Charles Simeon and J. C. Ryle; of John Stott, Michael Green and J. I. Packer; of Peter Akinola, John Chew and Gregory Venables.
We affirm the supremacy of the complete Canon of Holy Scripture, and we affirm the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) as our standard of doctrine and worship, including the Ordinal (with its preface), the 39 Articles of Religion, and the Solemn Declaration of 1893. We affirm the three ancient Western Creeds, (Apostles‘, Nicene and Athanasian) as well as the Chalcedonian formula.
