Saint Alban Church provides an alternate church home to those who have felt disenfranchised and alienated from a Christianity that has changed so much during the past several decades. While we respect the traditions and beliefs of other Christian bodies, we do not think that many are preaching and teaching the truth of the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
We wish to live in harmony with all Christian bodies. As Anglo-Catholic Christians rooted in the Oxford Movement, we accept the teaching of The Catechism of the Catholic Church and adhere to the "Branch Theory" of Christendom. We reject those modernist novelties such as the ordination of women to Holy Orders . We most fervently reject those errors, such as abortion, that imperil the very heart of human existence. We do not believe in "universal salvation", but stick to the Great Commission of Our Lord to, "Go baptize all nations...", and His words, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me."(John 14:6)
We believe that to live in harmony with those Christians whose beliefs are different means that we can still consider each other as brethren under the banner of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We consider that there are ecumenical ventures through which we can share ministry while at the same time disagreeing. Trinitarian baptism with water is, we believe, the common denominator, as is the Real Presence of Our Lord in the Eucharist.
