St. Timothy’s is a community of people seeking to be faithful to our baptismal promise to continue in the Apostles’+ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread and in the prayers. We also take to heart our baptismal obligation to seek and serve Christ in all people. We are committed to minister to the needs of those in and around our community.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that through the Scriptures and by the Holy Spirit God guides and directs us. It is our intention to keep the Faith and Practice of the ancient and undivided Church, ‘the Faith once and for all delivered to the saints’. Our public worship is biblical in form and content and the study and preaching of the Bible is central to our spirituality. Our unity is not of racial or political persuasion, of class or culture, but of faith in God: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
We acknowledge Christ to be the Church’s one and only Head and we recognize the Holy Eucharist as the central form of worship. We believe God is actively present in the world and in us. Scripture is the foundation of our worship. Each of our Services includes readings from both the Old and New Testaments. We say both the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed in the Anglican Church. The word creed comes from the Latin word credo, which means “I believe”.
Both creeds are used as statements of our faith. The Apostles’ Creed dates back to the early church and is used as a statement of faith at Baptism and in daily Services. The Nicene Creed was written in 325 AD and is the creed of the universal church. It is used during the Holy Eucharist. Both creeds allow us to openly declare our beliefs and unite ourselves to Christians in the past, present and future.
