We believe whoever sings prays twice!
What’s a Free Anglican church? We are a sacramental, evangelical, and charismatic expression of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church!
We believe in the Convergence Movement (John 17)
Originating in Phoenix, Arizona as a reformation born of the Holy Spirit, the Church of Emmanuel (USA) is answering God’s call in Christ Jesus to the Pentecostal/Charismatic family of churches to return to our Anglo-Methodist roots. True to John Wesley’s Methodist legacy, Free Anglicans value theological diversity and ecclesiastical unity while holding to the biblical faith of the early church. As a confessional body of believers, Free Anglicans open their hearts to the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Free Anglican clergy are expected to meet rigorous standards of pastoral competence and are encouraged to become active members of the scholarly community.
We believe in gender equality in the Church and society at large (Galatians 3:28)
We are honored to stand with Christians for Biblical Equality (CBE) International in spreading the Good News of evangelical egalitarianism. Our Rector, the Ven. Dr. Abraham David Parker, is the current President of CBE San Diego, and our local church is pleased to offer its resources for the furtherance of this life-giving message of gender equality.
We believe in the Anglican tradition (1 Corinthians 12:18)
As Open Evangelical Anglicans, we are convinced that Christ has not abandoned any part of his Church, especially not the Anglican Communion and those churches inspired by its historic Christian witness. We are committed to the reformation of this great tradition and will faithfully work for renewal from within Anglican structures established through apostolic succession such as the American Anglican Council.
of all that is, seen and unseen.
