Anglican Church Rendering

We are a parish in the Diocese of the West of the Anglican Church in America, which is the U.S. branch of the Traditional Anglican Communion. We are Anglican because what we believe and practice is rooted in the Catholic Faith that grew up in the British Isles during and after the age of the Apostles of Christ. The Catholic Faith means the universal faith, or what has always been believed and received by all Christians in every place. We believe and practice the universal or Catholic Faith of the Church in the Anglican tradition in our public worship and parish life.

Our mission is to glorify God in all places and in every way we can. We come together to walk in the light of the Incarnate God in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ. We come together in humility to learn of His ways so that we may walk in His paths. We proclaim all of God’s Truth and especially the good news of salvation, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to others in a sincere and respectful witness by our words and deeds. We are a family, growing in the Catholic Faith, and working in the calling whereunto God has called each of us.

In November of 2011 our parish was able to purchase property in Phoenix, the southeast corner of 40th Street and Paradise Lane, upon which we will build a new church, St. Andrew’s Anglican Church (and in the future, School). It is the relocation that we have been praying about. We have been in a multi-year building fund program in preparation for the time when our Lord brought us to the right location. And praise be to God, He did! The architectural firm of CCBG in Phoenix has created an initial visual rendering, shown on this page, of the outside of the new church. Read more about this journey to the new church on our link in the right column.

Our parish invites you to discover the Holy Catholic Church that Christ established, which has been known to people in every age through the Apostolic ministry, and has brought to them a peace which the world can not give them.
