Anglicans – who we are

We are part of God’s one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church. We, as a body of believers in Jesus Christ, seek to love God with all our heart, soul, and body and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

As part of the global church, we are…

Sacramental
            This means that we view the order of our faith through the lens of God’s grace being given to us through the sacraments instituted by Jesus Christ. He instituted Baptism and the Eucharist as necessary sacramental elements in the church. Therefore, one must be baptized with water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus in the Eucharist, which we take every Sunday.

Liturgical
            Liturgical worship simply means that we have an order of worship that is rooted in the historical church. The purpose of that is to maintain the reality and centrality of God’s holiness and power throughout all ages. Therefore, our worship participates in the worship of God with angels, archangels, and all the company of heaven and earth as formed in the ACNA BCP.

Missional
             We believe that the power of God compels us to share our faith and hope that we have in Jesus Christ to those who need God’s grace and mercy. Not only does it compel us to share our faith, but it compels us to take care of one another’s needs in the same way that the early Christians did in Acts.
