What we believe

The Lord Jesus Christ is at the centre of everything we believe and do at St. Luke’s.

  • In him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and in him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 1:19 & 2:3)
  • For our sake God made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
  • Having been offered once to bear the sins of many, he will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him (Hebrews 9:28).
  • All the authority of God in heaven and on earth has been given to him, so we seek to make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that Jesus has commanded (Matthew 28:19-20).

As an Anglican Church our doctrine is rooted in Holy Scripture, the Book of Common Prayer, and the 39 Articles of Religion, while our gathered worship aims to be intelligible and accessible to people who live in our parish today. In all our preaching and teaching we seek to encourage one another to live in glad obedience to God’s Word, even when that means being out of step with changing attitudes in society around us.

We are also a partner church of the Midlands Gospel Partnership, and fully subscribe to their values and doctrinal basis.
