At Holy Cross, we are part of the Anglican tradition, which produced the King James Bible, inspired great writers like C. S. Lewis, and has nurtured many Presidents, including George Washington.
When you experience Christian worship in the Anglican tradition you see that:
- Everything we do is grounded in scripture.
- Our worship is God-focused. Everything we say in worship has a focus on God.
- Where the focus is on us it speaks to our fallen nature and need for God’s love and forgiveness, as well as our need for salvation. Forgiveness and salvation He provides through the sacrifice of His Son.
- We are completely grounded in scripture and focused on the creator, not His creation.
The Holy Bible and The Book of Common Prayer
We worship using The Holy Bible and the historic Book of Common Prayer, a beloved Anglican tradition that guides our worship and teaches us how to pray. Prayer Book worship allows worshippers of all ages and traditions to unite with each other to offer praise to our Lord corporately with one voice and one focus.
