Welcoming Neighbors | Discipling Believers

Our Vision

We are committed to be a loving community reaching people and leading them to become followers of Christ by loving God, loving others, and serving the world.

Our Name

The name “Good Samaritan Anglican Church” is taken from Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan which can be found in the Gospel of Luke (10:25-37). In the Old Testament Law, there was a commandment that said “You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). Jesus told the Parable of the Good Samaritan in response to a man who asked “who is my neighbor,” essentially he was asking who he was obligated to love. The point of the parable is that our neighbor is everyone around us. The use of this parable in our name is a reminder that God has placed us in this community to love and bless our neighbors as an extension of God’s love for us. “We love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19).

Our Logo

We use the ancient “Chi Rho” symbol as the official logo of our church. Chi (looks like an “X” and sounds like a “C”) and Rho (looks like a “P” and sounds like an “R”) are the two Greek letters at the beginning of the word “Christos” or Christ. It is a clear statement that this is a “Christ-centered” congregation. In this version of the symbol, we have also incorporated two other Greek letters, Alpha and Omega, which are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. These letters are used in the Book of Revelation where it says: ““I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty”” (Revelation 1:8, ESV). This is a reminder that everything, all of creation, begins and ends with Christ.
