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 ecumenical legacy, we are Free Anglicans who 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 CBE International in spreading the Good News of evangelical egalitarianism.  Our Bishop-elect, the Venerable Dr. Abraham David Parker, served as the founding President of CBE San Diego, and all of our dioceses are pleased to offer their 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 the historic Christian witness of its Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion.  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.

We believe in one God,
    the Father, the Almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth,

    of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
    the only Son of God,
    eternally begotten of the Father,
    God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made,
    of one Being with the Father.
    Through him all things were made.
    For us and for our salvation
        he came down from heaven:
    by the power of the Holy Spirit
        he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary,
        and was made man.
    For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate;
        he suffered death and was buried.
        On the third day he rose again
            in accordance with the Scriptures;
        he ascended into heaven
            and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
   He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead,
        and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son.
    With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified.
    He has spoken through the Prophets.
    We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.
    We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
    We look for the resurrection of the dead,
        and the life of the world to come.  Amen.
