What to Expect
When people first attend Christ the King Anglican Church they may experience a new form of participatory worship. In fact, the word “liturgy” means “work of the people.” All gathered can actively participate in the celebration of both Word and Sacrament.
Throughout the service, you will observe the faithful: stand for the reading of the Holy Gospel, respond to the prayers of the people, pray in unity to confess sins, sing songs an hymns, profess their faith, make the sign of the cross, exchange peace, and raise hands in worship. You will also witness the lighting of candles, and be given the opportunity to participate in Holy Communion. By all that we say and do, we seek to make public our heartfelt reverence and adoration for God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
If this kind of worship is new to you, we invite you to give it a few weeks. As you become familiar with liturgical worship, you will discover a deeper meaning in the ancient text, Scripture and sacraments. Christians around the world and down through the centuries are united as one, family of Faith in modern times.
We are a friendly church. As we gather for worship, it has been said throughout our community, we are a unique group of believers. Our joyful greetings and the authentic care and concern we express for one another is not only seen but can be tangibly felt. Each of our lives has been deeply impacted by the love and forgiveness of our Lord and Savior, “Jesus Christ.” He, in turn, has filled our hearts with love and forgiveness for one another.
We are a family church. We represent people of all ages. There are both multigenerational families as well as individuals for whom this is their only family. We celebrate the family because God ordained it as the foundation of a civilized society. He established His universal Church to model the family. We take seriously the Biblical teachings which imply the church is not something you go to, such as a building, but it is something you belong to that is organic, active and alive. At any age, we are the children of God and gather together as the family of God.
We are a faith-filled church. We follow the Biblical mandates to live our lives according to the Word of God. We believe Jesus Christ died for the forgiveness of sins for all humanity. We believe He was raised from the dead and upon His second coming, all who have placed their trust in Him will live with Him in eternity. We believe He answers prayer. We believe in the miraculous power of the Holy spirit. We believe that anyone who calls upon the name of the Lord can and will be saved. This unwavering faith fills the hearts of our people and affects every aspect of our lives.
