At the centre:
- Our faith is in one God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- Our hope is in the only Saviour, Jesus Christ, who lived, died and rose again for us.
- Our final authority and unchangeable standard for Christian faith and life is the Bible.
Along with many other Anglicans in New Zealand, the founding members of St Peter’s of the Rock Church felt that the teachings of the Bible were being compromised by the existing Anglican denomination. We joined a group of like minded Christians called the Church of Confessing Anglicans Aotearoa New Zealand.
At a deeper level:
As members of the Church of Confessing Anglicans Aotearoa New Zealand, our doctrine is expressed in the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds, the Book of Common Prayer (1662), the 39 Articles of Religion, and the Ordinal, and we accept the Jerusalem Declaration as a contemporary expression of Anglican doctrine and practice.
