About St. Stephen
St. Stephen’s Anglican Church is a branch of the One, Holy,
Catholic and Apostolic Church instituted by Jesus Christ, faithfully
continuing the Anglican tradition.
Create and maintain a Christ-centered, Bible-believing and
Spirit-led community of Christians. We worship, grow and learn,
carrying the Gospel and Sacraments to our families and our
community. We strive to be witnesses of the Risen Christ, while
holding fast to our ancient Anglican Christian traditions, beliefs
and worship. We are in the ACA
Diocese of the West. The
Anglican Church in America is a province of the
Traditional Anglican Church (the TAC American web site and
Journal web site contain information about the TAC).
The Anglican Church
All of our parishes and missions are orthodox and sacramental,
continuing in the teaching and fellowship of the apostles and in the
breaking of bread, which was established by Christ as the design for
the life of the Church. As faithful stewards of the Catholic Faith
in the Anglican tradition, our teaching and practice is based solely
on the Holy Bible as interpreted by the universally accepted
Ecumenical Councils held by the whole Christian Church before any
divisions took place; and the traditional Book of Common Prayer,
which demonstrates both our Catholic Faith and Evangelical witness.
Indeed the best way to understand our faith and practice is to
take a Bible, a copy of the historic Book of Common Prayer, and come
and worship with us. The center of our worship is the Holy
Eucharist, also called Holy Communion, the Mass, the Lord's Supper,
and the Divine Liturgy. It is the only service recorded in the New
Testament as having been given us by Christ himself. You will find
that our liturgical worship involves the whole person - body, mind,
and spirit, allowing us to be active participants rather than mere
Who We Are
We are a continuing church body in the great Anglican Tradition
and part of the world-wide Traditional Anglican Communion.
Where We Stand
Follow this link for more information about what the Anglican Church
in America stands on current issues.
In the midst of the turbulent sea of the ever-changing world
around us, we stand on the Rock of Jesus Christ as He has been made
known to us in the teaching of the Holy Apostles, the Holy Church
and the Holy Bible. We offer you this firm foundation in order that
you may have that peace which the world cannot give; the peace of
God, which passes man's understanding. More information visit the
web page of the Church in the area you live in and contact by phone
or e-mail one of the clergy or visit the Church. The Churches link
