The Anglican Way

To be an Anglican… 

is not to embrace a distinct version of Christianity, but a distinct way of being a “Mere Christian,” at the same time evangelical, apostolic, catholic (kata – holos – universal), reformed, and Spirit-filled. We belong to a world-wide Anglican Communion, constituting the third largest Christian body globally.

Anglicanism is a Christian tradition that emerged from the practices, liturgy, and identity of the Church of England following the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century. The Anglican Church has a rich tradition of making disciples around the world and now includes some 85 million members in more than 165 countries.

Also called the Anglican Communion, the Anglican Church is made up of 40 global member Provinces. The provinces are subdivided into dioceses, and the dioceses into parishes. All of the provinces are autonomous, free to make decisions in their own ways. The Diocese of the Rocky Mountains (DRM) belongs to the province of The Anglican Church in North America (ACNA).

Christ The King Anglican Church is grounded in the historic interpretation of the Christian Bible—which is summarized in the words of the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds.

Our particular theological convictions are expressed in the 39 Articles of the Anglican Communion.
