Who We Are
an anglican ministry
Christ Anglican Church is in Northwest Illinois, in one of the Quad Cities, where "the River Runs West.” We are a parish in the Diocese of Quincy and part of the Anglican Church in North America.
We observe a formal, liturgical approach to worship that culminates in Holy Communion. We confess, we pray, and we listen to Scripture. We hear our priest's application of the scriptures to our lives, and we partake of the Body & Blood of Christ. The 10 a.m. Sunday worship includes hymns, contemporary hymns and choruses.
We strive to become aware of the presence of Jesus Christ. We emphasize study of Scripture, doctrine, and the history of over two-thousand-years of evolution of the Christian Church.
Our church members seek fellowship at coffee hour, small groups activities and church functions, realizing that our spiritual development is stimulated by the exchange of ideas and by loving friendships formed in a community of believers.
We are a strong and loving group. We sincerely welcome new members. Every man, woman, and child is worthy of our love, respect, and companionship.
If you do not now have a church, we urge you to visit. On Sundays we have printed bulletins that describe each step of the service. On weekdays, the priest or lay leader conducts friendly and informal worship. We have a coffee hour fellowship at 9 a.m. between the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. service.
By baptism we entered upon the Christian family worldwide. Within this universal family there are diverse expressions of the faith which has been entrusted to us. Anglicanism is one expression of the catholic heritage first manifested in England but now evident in many parts of the world. Christ Church is Anglican and is also "Episcopal" in that it reflects the unity of believers with their Bishop who provides episcopal oversight. Our province, the ACNA, is part of GAFCON and recognized by the GLOBAL SOUTH primates.
