St. Peter’s Anglican Church is a member of the world-wide Anglican Communion and is a founding church in the Anglican Church in North America. St. Peter’s began on October 9, 2005, when a group of Episcopalians from St. John’s Episcopal Church, chose to follow God’s lead to separate from the Episcopal Church in America because of its severely diminished respect for the role of Holy Scripture in the life of the Church, and its deeply compromised witness to the Gospel.
While we are not biblical literalists or fundamentalists, we are Christians in the classical tradition of Anglicanism, taking seriously both the authority of Holy Scripture, and the uniqueness of the person of Christ. We are, therefore, a new Church in a very old tradition. It is the call of St. Peter’s to seek with love and humility to witness to the hope and joy found only in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have two services of worship in traditional form, and a third service, true to the Prayer Book but more contemporary in style. We place a high priority on Bible study, youth, children’s, and college and young adult ministries, and mission. The people who have formed this church have been so clear in their convictions that they have been willing to uproot their families, sacrifice their comforts, and risk for the sake of the Gospel of our Lord.
