We belong to the worldwide Christian Church
We believe and hold to the Creeds of the Universal and Undivided Church. They witness to the fact that God the Father has revealed Himself uniquely and finally through His Son Jesus Christ who entered our world, took upon Himself our human nature and died for us on the Cross. To know God the Father we must trust in His Son who died for our sins in our place and rose again for our salvation. The chief work of the Holy Spirit today is to draw people to faith in Jesus Christ and weld them into the life of the Church.
St John’s Knutsford and Toft are Evangelical Churches
We believe that the Bible is God’s word written and is therefore our authority on all matters of faith and conduct. As Christians we seek (however imperfectly) to submit our lives to God’s Word and in all our activities we seek to obey the Scriptures. We also actively seek to encourage others to join us in hearing and listening to the Bible. The Bible teaches us the only way of salvation and eternal life and we long for others to know the reality of Jesus Christ when he said “You shall know the Truth and the Truth will set you free.”
St John’s Knutsford and Toft are Anglican Churches
We stand in the Tradition of the Anglican Reformers of the Sixteenth Century who sought to bring the Church in conformity with the Bible and the practice of the Apostolic Church. With the Anglican Reformers we hold to the great truths of the Reformation such as the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, and salvation in Christ alone. In so doing we uphold historic, classical Anglicanism. Click here to see the 39 Articles of the Church of England to which all the clergy and Readers have subscribed.
So why “truth unity mission”?
We are seeking to model the early church as described in the book of Acts:
Truth – we seek to teach the whole counsel of God revealed in the Bible
Unity – we seek to be united as a family around these truths
Mission – we seek to share the good news of Jesus Christ within our community and beyond
We welcome all Christians and anybody interested in finding out more about the Christian faith for themselves.
