Traditional Worship – The principle aim of our common life is to worship Almighty God as revealed in Jesus Christ and in the Scriptures. Our worship is rooted in the Anglican tradition of Common Prayer and classic Anglican hymnody.
Christian Formation – The goal of our Christian Education offerings is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for all ages. Programs include Sunday School for children, youth, and adults, weekday and Sunday morning Bible studies, Bible-reading groups, youth group, and confirmation classes for adults and youth.
Outreach – The fruit of our gathering for worship and Christian formation is to take the love and grace we have received and bring them into the world around us. To be a parish and congregation in Red Bank, New Jersey means that special concern is given to the needs of the local community, and that we see ourselves as a place where anyone in the local community is not only welcome but also has a claim to the care and attention of the pastor.
We believe in one God who has revealed himself as a Trinity of Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the eternal Son of the Father assumed human nature and became incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary. On Calvary, he made one atoning sacrifice for the sins of the whole world and on the third day he rose again from the dead.
We believe the Bible to be God’s Word written, containing all things necessary for salvation.
We hold the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds to be the normative standard for Christian belief.
We believe two Gospel Sacraments—Holy Baptism and Holy Communion—as necessary for salvation.
We hold the Catholic Church to be that Body of faithful Christians where the Word—Jesus Christ—is faithfully proclaimed both in preaching and the celebration of the Gospel Sacraments.
We believe that the Anglican tradition is a Catholic and Reformed faith, Catholic in that it has its origin in the church of the apostles, the ecumenical councils, and church fathers, and Reformed in that it listens to and assimilates the theological insights and corrections of the Protestant Reformation.
We hold the historic prayer book tradition to be normative for our worship and belief. The 1928 Book of Common Prayer is especially important to us as Episcopalians because it is the last American revision in the Anglican tradition of common prayer.
We hold the Thirty-Nine Articles to be an abiding source of authority for doctrine and belief.
The Catechism in the Book of Common Prayer summarizes our faith, and is especially useful for basic instruction in the fundamentals of Christianity for children and converts.
