Our faith rests on “two testaments, three creeds, four general councils, five centuries, and the series of Fathers in that period — the centuries that is, before Constantine, and two after, determine the boundary of our faith.”


“I didn’t go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.”


“The Church must be forever building, for it is forever decaying within and attacked from without.”

Come Visit us This Weekend

They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

-Luke 5:31-32
