About us

We're so glad you're here. We are an Anglican church plant bringing the light of God to the city of Rock Hill.

Our mission

We believe that God’s rescue plan is extravagant. Jesus’ life, death and resurrection saves us from our sins and allows us to be in relationship with the Triune God. Salvation brings the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, uniting us to Jesus Christ and sealing us as sons and daughters of the Father. We gather on Sundays to corporately praise Father, Son and Spirit, lifting up our voices and hearts in celebration. But we also gather to prepare us participate in God’s Mission. Basking in the love that is the Trinity, growing in relationship with God and Church, prepares us, fills us, gifts us with the stamina, the desire, the clarity on how to rightly engage the larger community, taking the light into the darkness, showing the world God’s extravagant love.

Our values

We invite ALL people to experience God’s presence by receiving the LOVE of the Father, living in the GRACE of Jesus, and surrendering to the POWER of the Spirit. God will accomplish this through our mission.

Experience the Trinity

Passionately creating an atmosphere where a genuine culture of God-honoring, Christ-centered, Spirit-filled, biblical worship is established for Sundays and drives us to engage in worship throughout the week in personal, family and small group settings.

The Anglican Way

Anglicanism

We are part of a global family with ancient roots living out our faith here in Rock Hill, SC. We seek to participate in a relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as well as the Church, the Body of Christ.

To participate in this relationship it is foundational to understand that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the gospel that sets people free, renews our broken world, and thus is central to every aspect of life and ministry.

This is the core of who we are as Anglicans and on this we will not waiver. There are a handful of other distinctives that set us apart from other denominations.

Here are some of the features of the Anglican Church that can help you better understand our local community:

Global Family

Anglicans represent the third largest body of Christians in the world, speaking many languages and coming from many different races and cultures.

The Anglican Church in North America is united with the overwhelming majority of provinces in the worldwide Anglican Communion. The ACNA unites 160,000+ Anglicans in 1,200+ congregations across the United States, Canada and Mexico into a single Church.

Ancient Roots

Anglicans trace their geographical roots back to Britain but farther back than just the Reformation. Early Christian writings indicate the presence of a church in Britain as early as the third century AD.

In the 16th century, English Reformers, including Thomas Cranmer and Richard Hooker, joined the Protestant Reformation happening all over Europe, seeking to rediscover the beauty of salvation as a gift from God (justification by faith, not works) and put the Scriptures into the daily lives of God’s people.

Though Anglicanism admittedly spread widely through the era of English colonialism, the riches of the Christian faith as practiced by Anglicans have blessed people all over the world and continue to be passed on in every generation in independent nations.

Anglican Essentials

  • One Bible, the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments. These are the inspired Word of God, “containing all things necessary to salvation,” and thus are the authority and ultimate standard for our Christian faith and life.
  • Two sacraments instituted and ordained by Christ himself. Sacraments are "outward signs (water, bread, wine) of an inward grace or truth (the presence of Jesus)." We administer these sacraments faithfully and (in regards to communion) often using His words he instituted and the elements He ordained.
  • Two creeds, summations of Holy Scripture developed and used by the undivided church early in our family history. The Apostles and Nicene Creeds sufficiently declare in whom we believe and in comradore with saints past and present we recite one of these every time we gather.
  • Three ordained offices, often referred to as the historic episcopate. All Anglican churches dedicate themselves to the apostolic tradition expecting this structure to be helpful in the Body of Christ growing in fullness and unity. Churches are guided and ministered by Priests and Deacons who submit to the spiritual leadership of a chief pastor, their bishop.
  • Four Anglican formularies, the 39 Articles of Religion, The Book of Common Prayer, the Ordinal and the Homilies. These documents, in addressing the particular concerns of the English Reformation, guide how we worship, structure our church community and live out life as individuals and the church. These documents were birthed out of scripture and prayer, and in concert with the Creeds, work to lay the groundwork for a precise articulation of faith on many points of Christian doctrine.
