Anglican Faith and Worship

 

Traditional, Liturgical and

Reverential

 

 1.

St. Peter the Apostle Anglican Church uses the Book of Common Prayer (1928), King James Bible, and The Hymnal 1940.   The article linked to below gives a concise explanation of the relevance of traditional worship.

"The whole idea of liturgical worship is traditional rather than contemporary.  The idea of people sitting, listening, singing, and praying mostly in quiet for an hour is radically not contemporary and unlike anything else people do these days."

 2.

We Believe:

  •  The Holy Trinity -  God the Father Almighty and Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord and the Holy Spirit.

  • Holy Scripture as interpreted by Tradition and understood by Reason contains all things necessary for Salvation and Christian Living.

  • The Book of Common Prayer (1928) and its predecessors back to the 1549 Book of Common Prayer of Archbishop Cranmer is scripturally based, doctrinally sound, and gospel centered.

  •  An ordained male ministry of Deacons, Priests and Bishops in Apostolic Succession and faithful to the Apostolic teaching of that Faith once delivered to the Apostles by Jesus Christ.

  •  Christian family values, such as, marriage is between a man and a woman and all life is sacred.

  •  The Summary of the Law as stated by Jesus Christ: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. (Deut. 6:5) This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou Shalt love they neighbor as thyself. (Lev. 19:18) On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets." (Matt.  22:37-40)

  • The Great Commission as stated by Jesus Christ: "Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." (Matt.  28:19-20)

"Why Choose the Anglican Way" is a powerful treatise describing the benefits and beauty of traditional Anglican worship and liturgy as excerpted in the quotes below (Written by Rev. Dr. Peter Toon). 

"This Anglican Way is an ordered, disciplined and joyous way of believing and praying and of living and serving.  As the Latin dictum puts it, lex orandi, lex credendi - the law of prayer/worshipping is the law of believing/living.  By using Common Prayer regularly, its content drops from the mind into the heart, where it is cherished and remembered and from where it can grow into virtuous fruit." 

"This Fall [Sept/Oct 1997] issue of Mandate is devoted to answering the question, 'Why choose the Anglican Way of Christianity, at whose center is the Bible and the authentic Book of Common Prayer?'

No less than ten separate answers are given to this question."
