To Know the Truth
The Church must differentiate between what is true and false tradition and teaching. To do so a threefold test was laid down by St Vincent of Lérins, namely ‘what has been believed everywhere, always, and by all’. This triple test of ecumenicity, succession, and consent is the means by which All Saints is able “to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.”
At All Saints, we take great care to hold to the Faith which has been believed everywhere, always and by all.
1. By EVERYWHERE, we mean there is one Faith which the whole Church geographically throughout the world confesses that "Jesus is Lord!"
2. By ALWAYS, we mean there is one Faith revealed by Jesus, proclaimed by the apostles, and preserved by the Church throughout time, "Jesus is Lord!"
3. By ALL, we mean there is one Faith, defined by 20 centuries of souls, the historic majority, and it is "Jesus is Lord!"
