What We Believe

St Margarets church is part of the Church of England or Anglican Church. A description of the God we worship is given in the ‘Creeds’ to be found in Common Worship services and prayers for the Church of England.

We believe in one God,

  • The Father, the Almighty,
  • Maker of Heaven and earth,
  • of all that is seen and unseen.

We believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord.

  • He was born of the virgin Mary.
  • He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried.
  • He descended to the dead.
  • On the third day he rose again.
  • He ascended into Heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
  • He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in The Holy Spirit,

  • The Lord, the giver of life.
  • Who proceeds from the Father and the Son
  • He has spoken through the prophets

We believe in

  • One holy catholic and apostolic Church ( i.e. worldwide and founded by the apostles.)
  • One Baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
  • The resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
