What Is The Anglican Catholic Church?

The A.C.C. began as a restorative effort on the part of concerned Episcopal bishops, priests and laity who were unwilling to accept the concept that the Christian faith could be amended to fit the current social agenda. The membership of the A.C.C. now includes people from a broad spectrum of Church backgrounds and is found worldwide. We are Anglican because we use the Book of Common Prayer (1928) and follow the path taken by the Church of England in the 16th century. We are Catholic because we adhere to the faith accepted by all Christians before the Church separated into Eastern and Western branches. We confess the truth of the Faith as established by the Apostle's and Nicene Creeds.

"We and our people - Thanks be to God - follow no novel and strange religions, but that very religion which is ordained by Christ, sanctioned by the primitive and Catholic Church and approved by the consentient mind and voice of the early Fathers."

—Queen Elizabeth I, 1563 A.D.

We are a Church because we are a community that finds comfort and nourishment in coming together to worship God according to the traditional English Liturgy.
