About the Anglican Episcopal Church
The Anglican Episcopal Jurisdiction is a remnant of that ancient, traditional, and biblical Church having its roots in the Apostolic Churches that spread from the Middle East to the British Isles and from there throughout the inhabited world. All bishops have a primary duty to maintain the purity of the faith as delivered by Christ to the Apostles. Concomitant to maintaining the faith is planting churches and developing clergy to provide for preaching of the Word and the Administration of the Rites and Sacraments of the Church as found in The 1928 Book of Common Prayer. A church is a cooperative enterprise comprised of clergy and laity, each group with special ministries in promoting the Gospel of Christ without revision or adulteration. The AEC follows proper and correct procedures in supervising the administrative aspects of each parish in accordance with certain requirements. This includes incorporation, a proper designation (both state and federal) as a tax-free religious body, police screening of all clergy, proper insurances, and proper adherence to the AEC Constitution and Canons, which outline polity, governance, and doctrinal matters. Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of our worship or ministry in Christ Jesus, or simply wish further information.
Mission of the Anglican Episcopal Church
The Mission of the churches of the Anglican Episcopal Church is to teach and preach the Word of God through the Holy Scriptures, to administer the Sacraments, and to provide a spiritual home for all Christians seeking to worship in unity of spirit and purpose, building a spiritual home, both for our comfort and the glory of God through Christ our Redeemer and only Intercessor. The Church is described as Apostolic, Sacramental, Liturgical, Scriptural, and Evangelical. Its goal is to provide a means for the faithful to worship in a manner consistent with Biblical doctrine and centuries-old Anglican tradition. Anglican worship is a Prayer Book religion, the foundation of which rests on Scripture, Reason, and Tradition. Incorporated into the 1928 Prayer Book, formerly used by the Protestant Episcopal Church, are Thirty-nine Articles of Religion which further define out faith and worship. We need the intellect, and more importantly, the prayers, of the faithful to mold this church into a House of God. In common and communal worship, with Christ as our foundation and the guidance of the Spirit, we will build the Church.
