Affiliation

As Anglicans, we are part of the Anglican Communion, which is a global relationship of churches that began with the English Reformation in the sixteenth century. The Anglican church is experiencing tremendous growth and renewal in many locations, particularly the developing world. There are over seventy million Anglicans in the world today, and the majority live in Africa and Asia.

Our worship is both ancient and modern. Anglicans have always upheld the Holy Scriptures as God’s Word, and we stand on the two great creeds, the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed, as the fundamental statements of Christian belief. We celebrate the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper, as commanded by Jesus, and we uphold the historic order of Bishops in the administration of the church’s life and mission. Our approach to worship, based in ancient practice, engages the senses, connecting with both the heart and the mind. As a result, Anglican churches are in a unique place to capture the imagination of a society immersed in the images of the media and internet.

We are affiliated with the global Anglican church through the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and the Diocese of Christ our Hope. The Diocese began as a missionary movement of the Anglican Church in Rwanda and remains closely connected to Rwanda. The mission of the Diocese is “to plant, build, and equip disciple-making Anglican churches, their people, and those who serve them.”

The Right Reverend Steven Breedlove was born in Tyler, Texas, and attended Washington & Lee University and Dallas Theological Seminary. In 2005, he was ordained as an Anglican priest of the Church of Rwanda and served in pastoral leadership at Church of the Apostles.
