What We Believe
“Together in Jesus Christ growing in God’s Mission to the World in the Power of the Holy Spirit”
We respond to the love of God the Father as we join in His mission to the world.
Jesus is the Way
We believe Jesus is the truth and fullness of life is found in Him.
Holy Spirit Presence
We rely on the gift of the Holy Spirit to empower us to follow Jesus.
As our church name indicates, CHS welcomes the Holy Spirit to our meetings, our lives and our work, as well as following God the Father and accepting his son Jesus. The Holy Spirit, as the third person of God’s Trinity, plays the role of our comforter, spirit of truth and frequent guide to God’s voice. His presence also brings a profound sense of peace and joy.
We gather as church to grow in four dimensions of relationship:
CHS is part of the Anglican Church of South Africa (ACSA). We have a relaxed and informal approach to doing church and are a close community that feels much like family. We belong to the Parish of St John the Evangelist Wynberg, a family of six churches, and an NGO (The Warehouse) with whom we share a common approach and set of values. See Partners & Networks
We believe that every follower of Jesus has a valuable role to play in the mission of God and is called to work for justice and righteousness.
We believe the need for each individual to accept Jesus for themselves and that the Holy Spirit is available to all.
We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is powerful to save and the Bible is God-breathed and authoritative.
