We are a member of the Missionary Diocese of All Saints, ACNA our Bishop is The Rt. Rev. William Ilgenfritz.
The mission of St. Athanasius Anglican Church is to realize that wealth of ordered devotion and sacramental life which is the mark of Catholicism, to express those Evangelical and prophetic values which are the glory of Protestantism*, and live into JESUS CHRIST's Great Commission to proclaim the GOOD NEWS of the "faith once delivered" to the saints.
*Anglicanism rightly taught posits that "Protestant" and "Catholic" are not opposites but rather a means to an end: to be rightly and truly "catholic' one must be pro-testant that is to say "Pro-Testiment" as the word meant in the 16th century.
The English Reformation was 'Pro-testant' (rather than contestant which is to be against) in that it restored what was truly 'catholic' from accrued unbiblical doctrines and resisted the efforts of extremists on the Continent to strip away doctrines held by the early Church.
