St Andrew’s is committed to growing God’s people in Christ, through worship, education for children and adults, and loving service in our community. As Christians, we believe that the meaning for our existence is found in Jesus Christ. We worship and pray together, we enjoy each other’s company, and we sometimes disagree but Christ draws us together.
Since what we believe emerges from an ever-deepening understanding of God, ourselves, and our tradition, we prefer to think of ourselves on a journey rather than having arrived at any universal set of beliefs. Following Jesus Christ and led by the Holy Spirit, we believe we are being drawn into “all truth.” Therefore, our belief is continually informed by: our experience; a deep loyalty to the Bible; respect for the experience and tradition of the Church; and the need to use our minds with creative imagination. As Anglicans, we draw on centuries-old traditions in liturgical and sacramental worship, and also hope to be relevant and contemporary in our engagement with current social issues and our involvement in our local community. We are an Anglican church in the Diocese of Auckland, and thus a part of the Anglican Communion, a world-wide fellowship of self-governing churches in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury.
