What we Believe

What we Believe

We are a Christian Church

We believe in and worship the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. With all God’s people throughout the world, we confess the true Christian faith as recorded in Holy Scripture and summarized by the historic creeds: The Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed and Athanasian Creed.

We are An Anglican Church

We are part of the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne. Our doctrine and practice is embodied in the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion and The Book of Common Prayer. We recognise the Jerusalem Declaration as a faithful expression of Historic Anglicanism. 

We Are a Reformed, Evangelical Church

We believe the good news that salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone in Christ alone, to the glory of God alone. We believe this Gospel is for all people and God has co-missioned us to proclaim this Gospel to all people.

Our Purpose is the Glory of God the Father

Our Vision is the Lord Jesus Christ

Our Power is the Holy Spirit

Our Mission is the Yarra Valley

Our Message is the Gospel of Grace

Our Motivation is Love
