For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures.
1 Corinthians 15:3-4
We are a Christian Church
We believe in one God who has revealed himself supremely through his Son, Jesus.
To know God the Father, we must put our trust in his Son and his death for our sins.
The chief work of God the Holy Spirit is to draw people to faith in Christ.
We are a Bible-based Church
We believe that the Bible is God's word and is therefore our authority in all matters of faith and conduct. In all our activities we seek to listen to and obey God's word in Scripture. We also aim to share as widely as possible the Bible’s great message of rescue through Jesus Christ.
We are an Anglican Church
We are connected to the main St Ebbe’s in Oxford city centre, so we are part of the Church of England. We therefore stand in the tradition of the Anglican Reformers of the 16th Century,
affirming with them the great truths which were rediscovered at the time of the Reformation; such as the sovereignty of God in salvation, justification by faith alone, and salvation in Christ alone. We affirm the 39 Articles of the Church of England.
The St Ebbe’s statement of faith is based on the fundamental truths of Christianity as revealed in Scripture. You can download it using the link below:
