The Anglican Church in North America

The Anglican Church in North America unites 112,000 Anglicans in nearly 1,000 congregations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico into a single Church. On April 16, 2009 it was recognized as a province of the global Anglican Communion, by the Primates of the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans. The Most Rev. Dr. Foley Beach is the Archbishop of the Church.

What we stand for

Members of the Anglican Church in North America are in the mainstream, both globally and historically, of Christianity – the biblically-faithful way of following Jesus and being part of the “One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.” As Anglicans, this orthodoxy is defined by and centered on our church’s classic formularies – the Book of Common Prayer, including the Ordinal, and the Thirty-nine Articles – which all point back to the authority of the Holy Bible and articulate foundational principles of the Anglican tradition throughout the world. We wholeheartedly embrace theThe Jerusalem Declaration [PDF], the founding declaration of the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, and the Theological Statement of the Common Cause Partnership – the precursor to the Anglican Church in North America.

Anglican1000 is an initiative of the Anglican Church in North America and her ministry partners to raise up Anglican congregations and communities of faith across North America to reach people with the transforming love of Jesus Christ.

During his investiture service in 2009, the Church’s first archbishop, The Most Rev. Robert Duncan, made the astonishing, prophetic call to plant a 1000 new congregations. A few months later, a team of leaders gathered in Plano to dream about a cooperative movement to plant churches and answer this call, and in 2014, 500 of the first 1,000 churches have now been planted.
