St James' in an Evangelical Anglican Church, part of the Church in Wales.
What is the Anglican Church?
The Anglican Church came into being during the Reformation. It is a worldwide church numbering some 85 million people. Anglicans - as with all other Christians - believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and that accepting Him as Saviour is the only way to abundant life in the present age and in the age to come.
St James' aims to present Jesus and the message of the Christian Faith through its worship, teaching, evangelism and lifestyle, in a way that is consistent with the revealed Word of God in the Bible. The following quote by St Jerome (347-420) sums up the importance of the Bible in this respect:
'The person who doesn't know the Scriptures doesn't know Jesus Christ.'
What is an evangelical?
The word 'evangelical' comes from a Greek word meaning 'gospel' or 'good news'. The word 'evangelical' refers to a person, church or organisation that is committed to the Christian gospel message that Jesus Christ is the Saviour of humanity.
