Welcome to The Well By The Sea, a contemporary church in the Anglican tradition. Often when people see this description of our church the first question they ask is, “What is the Anglican tradition?” The Anglican Church in the world is basically the Church of England. In the United States this tradition goes by a couple of different names, specifically “Episcopal” or “Anglican.” This tradition has a long history dating back to the 1500’s when the Church in England split from the Roman Catholic Church in what is known as the “English Reformation.” Our doctrine is deeply rooted in scripture and our belief is that the Bible is the written Word of God and is to be believed and used to guide one’s life. We believe that there is one way alone to eternal life and that is Jesus Christ, the only Son of God who died in our place to free us from the bondage of sin. We receive that salvation by repenting of our fallen nature, consciously accepting Jesus as Savior and Lord, and then committing ourselves to allowing the Holy Spirit to transform us as we live out the rest of our life. We believe in utilizing the gifts of the Spirit, which are given to the people of God for the purpose of glorifying God and edifying His Church. And, we believe in the fellowship of brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ. We sustain one another, laugh and pray with one another, weep with one another and look out for each others well-being.
Our church is lively with many lay-ministries, a vibrant youth and children’s program and a dynamic music team. Our worship is contemporary in that we worship with Praise and Worship music, contemporary Christian music and traditional hymns that have sometimes been set to more contemporary music…..sometimes not. We utilize the liturgy, which dates back to the early Christian Church. In fact, the liturgy we use can be traced back as far as at least 215 A.D. So in our worship services, you will find a blend of the old and the new, with lively participation from the congregation.
The Well is only eight years old, yet in a short amount of time, God has blessed us richly and regularly. We welcome visitors and anyone seeking a church home. Whether you are from out of town or a local who is just curious, we welcome you. You will find an amazingly friendly and open, laid-back atmosphere with folks who are like you, and who are on the journey of life together.
We meet at 10:30 on Sunday mornings and provide a nursery for babies and a church program for young children. We would love to see you. Come, expecting to be welcomed and loved as soon as you come in the door! We will be looking for you!
