Since 1913 St Mark’s has served the community of Camberwell and beyond by sharing the good news about Jesus in words and actions. Our hope is that we help people make sense of life.
What we believe
St Mark’s is committed to the Bible as the true and living word of God. It is the foundation of all we believe and teach as a Church. St Mark’s is an Anglican Church, and so we agree to the thirty-nine Articles of Religion that underpin Anglican theology and practice. Beneath these thirty-nine Articles sit three ancient Christian confessions of belief, or creeds: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed. We embrace the theological convictions these creeds express. Click the links to read them.
who are we?
The Bible helps us ask questions about who we are as humans. In it, we read that God made us to be human beings, not machines or robots. What we believe about who we are affects how we choose to exist, how we live and what we do.
We see we’re human beings created in the image of God, and of incredible worth (Psalm 8).
We see we’re fearfully and wonderfully made - completely unique in God’s eyes (Psalm 139).
We are made of dust - fragile and frail, needing food, water, sleep, company, love and community to survive and thrive (Psalm 103:14).
We are sinners. We do wrong and fail to do what is right (Romans 3:9-10).
If we’re believers in Jesus, we are forgiven, justified, cleansed, accepted, embraced, being gradually transformed, and we’ll be finally glorified (Romans 3, 5, 8).
