What to Expect

One of the things people first notice when they attend Christ the King Anglican Church is the manner in which we worship.  Our worship is one of participation. In fact, the word “liturgy” means “work of the people.” The people of God are not merely passive on-lookers but actively participates in a great celebration which seeks to honor God by both Word and deed. 

That’s why throughout the service, you can expect to see people:  stand for the reading of the Word, respond to the prayers of the people, confess sins, sing songs, profess the faith, make the sign of the cross, pass the peace, raise hands in worship. You will also experience the lighting of candles, going forward to receive the bread and wine, and recess with the cross and taper.  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 more familiar with the service, you will find great meaning in the words and acts of liturgical worship and perhaps discover a deeper connection to Christians around the world and down through the centuries.

We are a friendly church. Although we are all very different, we have one thing in common. Each of our lives has been deeply impacted by the love and forgiveness of our Savior Jesus Christ. He, in turn, has filled our hearts with love and forgiveness for one another. This is characterized by our joyous greetings and the care and concern we express for one another whenever we gather together to worship.

We are a family church. We have people of all ages. There are both multigenerational families in our church as well as individuals for whom this is their only family. We go to great lengths to celebrate the family because not only did God ordain it as the basic unit around which we should organize ourselves as a society, but He also organized the church as a family. We take seriously the Biblical teachings that the church is not something you go to, it is something you belong to. We are the family of God.

We are a faith-filled church. We hold a certain set of beliefs to be true and live our lives accordingly. We believe Jesus died for the forgiveness of our sins. We believe He was raised from the dead and the day He returns, all who trust in Him will live with Him forever. We believe in answered prayer. We believe in miracles. We believe that anyone regardless of their circumstances can be made new and whole and cleansed by the power of God. This faith fills our church and affects everything we do
