ST. MATTHEW'S ANGLICAN CHURCH
Serving the Johnstown Community
St. Matthews Anglican Church stands as a beacon of faith in Johnstown. We are a place of prayer, peace and joy to all who join us. Our community is richly diverse, with people of different ages and backgrounds coming together to worship and serve together. We welcome all individuals seeking God’s love and our doors are open to every soul seeking to welcome Jesus into their heart.
We believe that the Old and New Testaments of the Bible together are the inspired Word of God, which contains all things necessary for salvation. The Bible holds authority in questions of God and humanity over all other traditions, arguments,decisions, and values.
We believe that there is One God who exists eternally in three Persons- Father,Son, and Holy Spirit. We also believe that Jesus Christ is completely God and is also completely human.
We believe that salvation is in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith alone. As all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God thereby all are in need of a Savior.
We believe that those who are called by Christ to be His disciples are the Church. Trusting in His saving grace, equipped and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we are sent into the world for the sake of others-so that others may come to the saving knowledge and love of God in Christ Jesus as well.
Our identiy is based on Holy Scripture, the historic Creeds of the Church, and the Anglican 39 Articles of Religion. We are orthodox in faith. Our worship is liturgical and sacramental. Our teaching and preaching are biblical, Christo-centric and Spirit-filled. Our mission is to make disciples of Christ where ever and whenever we are.
