Our theology is centered on the essentials of the Christian faith. However, there are other aspects of our faith where we can disagree and where dialogue may even lead us more fully into truth. In other words, some theological concepts are written in blood, some in ink and others in pencil. Our hope is to find unity in historical orthodoxy and to encourage dialogue on negotiable aspects of our faith, so that we can grow in truth and love. Because how we believe is just as important as what we believe.
Christ's Church Oceanside is part of the world-wide Anglican Communion. It is the largest Protestant communion of churches in the world, with almost 80 million members in 165 countries. Our province is the Anglican Church in North America, and our diocese is the Anglican Network in Canada. So what does it mean to be Anglican?
