INTRODUCING CHRIST CHURCH ANGLICAN
A new community of faith in Wakulla County has formed.
At Christ Church Anglican you will find...
- a welcoming Church. We do not ask anyone who comes into our doors if he or she is “good enough,” or the “right sort,” or “like us.” We are Anglicans, not angels. We do not exclude anyone from the fellowship of the Church who seeks God, or who seeks spiritual nourishment, or just a safe community in which to touch the deeper parts of their souls and lay down their burdens; where young and old, strong or weak, rich or poor may hear God’s Word read, and receive God’s sacraments for their comfort, strengthening, mercy, and peace.
- a Church where the beauty of worship and the proclamation of God’s Word are the central values, in the ancient pattern of the life of the earliest Christians.
- a Church in which, along with Anglicans across the globe, we recognize the Lordship of our Savior, Jesus Christ. We embrace His plan of salvation. Each person, in his or her own way is encouraged to make a commitment, to listen and to learn, and to make a wholehearted response to Jesus as Savior and Lord.
- a Church where the apostolic teaching, i.e. the Scripture as the Word of God written, is the foundation of our common life; where we embrace the authority and guidance of Holy Scripture that is essential for living a truly Christian life. We hold fast to the faith delivered to the saints (Jude 3).
A Church where:
- We pray to see lives transformed more and more into the likeness of Christ...
- We pray to see families strengthened by knitting their wills together in God’s will and their spirits in the Holy Spirit.
- We pray to be a church where everyone is welcome but no one leaves unchanged...
- We pray to see the Gospel proclaimed with power so that the whole world can see and believe that Jesus truly is the one sent from the Father.
Christ Church has begun as a congregation most of whom have been members of St. Teresa Episcopal Church, but who have disaffiliated with the Episcopal denomination because of its increasing rejection of basic biblical teaching.
