Who are we?

St. Michael’s is a community of people bound together by our commitment to Jesus Christ.

We believe that the only hope for the world is found in the Good News that is Jesus Christ.

As Anglicans, we seek to embrace the fullness of the Christian faith as it was delivered by the Apostles.

Our worship is rooted in the ancient, while seeking to speak to the world of today and looking to the future.

We are looking to build a community of committed Christians who live out their faith through Word, Sacraments and Work.

In our sacramental worship, we seek to bring Christ into our presence by making the ancient liturgies of the Church relevant to the world of today.

We are also constantly seeking ways to take Jesus into the world through projects that demonstrate His mercy to people in need.

Saint Michael and All Angels Church is a member of the Diocese of Quincy and the Anglican Church in North America. The Anglican Church is the fourth largest Christian denomination in the world, with approximately 80 million members.

What we believe

We are Christ centered: We believe that Jesus Christ offers us both the salvation for our sins and the ultimate example of how we should live our lives.

We are Biblical:  We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments contain all things necessary for salvation.

We are concerned about our community: We are constantly seeking ways to reach into our community with acts of service and mercy.

We are rooted in the ancient Christian faith: We believe that the three historic creeds  (Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian) provide a summary of the Christian Faith.

Our Mission & Vision

Our Vision is based on the Great Commandment. We are an ever-growing, faithful and caring community of believers.

Our Mission is based on the Great Commission: Transforming lives by delivering the unchanging message of the Gospel to a changing world.

The Great Commandment—

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”
Matthew 22:36-40

The Great Commission—

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:16-20
