Grant, O God, that we may follow the example of thy faithful servant Saint Barnabas, who, seeking not his own renown but the well-being of thy Church, gave generously of his life and substance for the relief of the poor and went forth manfully in mission for the spread of the Gospel; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

WHO ARE WE?
We are a church for Lansing, rooted in tradition, robust in discipleship, and active in mission.
"Tradition" is often a positive concept in Scripture. For us, it means we want our growth to come from a deep rootedness in the witness of the Church from the earliest times continuously down to today. It means valuing order and stability as part of a living faith. We value our spiritual union to believers in all times and places, part of "the fellowship of the saints". And so we pursue unity in the truth. As Anglicans, we are grateful to partake in the third largest communion of Christians around the globe today.
We are committed to discipling men, women, and children of all ages, in "the faith once for all delivered to the saints" (Jude 1:3). Our daily, weekly, and occasional liturgies, rites and ceremonies, sermons and teaching initiatives are all designed to that end. Our goal is to engage head, heart, and hands across every season of life for growth into the mind and likeness of Christ. The pastoral ministry of counsel and absolution (the proclamation of forgiveness for repentant sinners) is also a priority.
We exist to see, savor, and show the love of God in Jesus Christ through ordered lives of prayer, word and sacrament, hospitality, care for each other, and works of mercy in our community. God values all people as made in his image. We engage alongside other individuals and institutions, with believers and non-believers, for the common good. This is a reflection of God's own character (Matt. 5:45). We especially want to see Christ-centered churches planted throughout Lansing, East Lansing, and the Capital Area.
