St. Paul’s is an Anglican congregation in the tradition of the English Reformation. The Holy Bible is our final authority in all matters of faith and doctrine. The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is our source of liturgical worship, expressed in the colors and themes of each profoundly meaningful season of the Church Year. The 1940 Hymnal is our source of rich theology expressed through the medium of exalted music. We steadfastly adhere to the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion and fully subscribe to the Historic Creeds of Christ’s Church. The pure Word of God is preached and the Holy Sacraments are rightly and duly administered according to Christ’s ordinance.
St. Paul’s congregation includes faithful members from a wide diversity of backgrounds. It is a warm, hospitable church family deeply grateful for such a beautiful location where our Lord may be approached in reverent and decently ordered worship.
St. Paul’s is a member of the Anglican Churches of America and Associates – an association of Reformed congregations given to serving their Lord, each other and their communities according to the ancient formula of the “five solas” which emerged during the Protestant Reformation, and which today, almost five-hundred years later, still so capably articulate the fundamental tenets of Christendom:
Sola Scriptura – “by Scripture alone” Sola Fide – “by faith alone” Sola Gratia – “by grace alone” Solus Christus – “through Christ alone”
Soli Deo Gloria – “glory to God alone”
It is our fervent hope and solemn prayer that you will find at St. Paul’s a reverent, worshipful and friendly church home where you may assemble each week in quiet and humble reverence before the LORD our God.
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (St. John 4:23-24).
