The Abbey is rooted in the Celtic missionary tradition and nourished by three streams.
- Sacramental Life
- The Holy Spirit
We seek to worship, disciple, and replicate the gospel message to advance the kingdom of God in the Pawleys Island community and beyond.
We hold that Scripture guides our lives and is authoritative for us individually and for the Church at large (known as the evangelical tradition).
We believe (affirm) the Sacramental life is embodied in the practices and teachings Christians have held throughout the centuries as expressed in the historic Creeds and 39 Articles of Religion. Our faith tradition has a variety of worship expressions, including the sacraments of baptism and Holy Communion instituted by Jesus (known as the catholic tradition).
We recognize God’s Spirit at work in the Church and the world, manifesting His power and preparing us for ministry through the deposit of his Spiritual gifts (known as the charismatic tradition). As members of the one holy catholic and apostolic church in the Anglican Mission in America our solemn declaration of principles by which we are governed can be accessed in greater detail here.
