An Orthodox Anglican Community Church in Auburn, CA located in the beautiful western foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, St. Peter's is easily accessed from Sacramento, Roseville and the metro areas as well as the local mountain communities.
Our worship is liturgical in form, using the historic Book of Common Prayer. Our particular edition is the 1928 American Book of Common Prayer, a commonly used prayer book in parishes seeking to hold fast to the faith that has been taught throughout the centuries. We sing hymns accompanied by an organ and our sermons are biblically based.
We are a small but growing and diverse community of people, coming from all walks of life. We are please to welcome all who come to learn of Christ our savior and are ready to live in His beautiful grace.
Reformed - The Anglican Church is a product of the reformation and while the reformation took on different forms on the continent and in England, it is undeniable that the European reformation left its mark on the Anglican church and in that our beliefs are distinctly reformed.
Catholic - We hold fast to the ancient creeds of the church, the Nicene,Apostle and Athanasian. We adhere to the statement put forth by St. Vincent of Lerins, that we believe only that which has been believed by all Christians, at all times in all places. We are also sacramental in nature, with Holy Communion being celebrated every week and the rite of Baptism being a critical part of our initiation rites.
Evangelical - We believe that it is the Christian faith that saves us and brings us into a right relationship with God. To this end we seek to be a shining light of this gift of grace found in Christ, both as a community and as individuals.
