What we believe

We are Christian

Christ Church Wyre Forest is a mainstream Christian church, teaching what the vast majority of Christians throughout the world have believed for centuries. That is we believe in one God who has revealed Himself supremely in His Son, Jesus Christ. We can know God as our Father by placing our trust in Christ’s death on the cross which is the only way we can be reconciled to God. The work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people to faith in Christ, giving us new birth, and new spiritual life as He makes us more like Christ.

We are Evangelical

We believe that the Bible is God’s word and is our final authority in all matters of faith and life. We seek to listen to and obey God’s word, applying it to every part of life. Clear and relevant Bible teaching is at the heart of all our main meetings. We seek to build networks and friendship with other churches who share our convictions about the Bible and about the gospel.

We are Anglican

We affirm with the 16th century Anglican Reformers the great truths which were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation, as expressed in the 39 Articles and Book of Common Prayer: the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, salvation in Christ alone. We also stand in fellowship with faithful Anglicans across the world through the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans and affirm the Jerusalem Declaration. We not part of the official structures of the Church of England, but are affiliated to the Anglican Mission in England (AMiE) and under the oversight of The Revd John Ellison, the chairman of the AMiE Panel of Bishops. Our unity is in Christ not in any one denomination and as such people from any denomination or none are welcome.
