Faith & Worship of the Church

The centre of the Church of Melanesia's teaching is the life and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The basic teachings of the church are summed up in the Apostle’s Creed and the Nicene Creed.

The focus of the church's worship is the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, sometimes called "Mass", but more often "Communion" or "Communion service". This is celebrated weekly wherever there is a priest and in some communities it is celebrated daily, except for Saturdays.

Go to the "2011 ACoM Manual" pages 17 – 40 under the Constitutions and Canons file, to learn more about the Church Sacraments that include – Baptism, Holy Communion, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Anointing, Penance, Holy Order and Other Services & Rites-Liturgy & Authorised Books, Burial, Ministry of Deliverance and Ministry of Healing.
