Branches of the Cross is a sacramental discipleship church that exhibits the gifts of the Holy Spirit through daily prayer for those who are ill in body, mind, or spirit. We conduct worship services in the Anglican tradition, including Sunday Holy Eucharist and other services during the week as may be helpful for growing and ministering to the body of Christ. We present periodic discipleship classes and programs to addresses the spiritual needs of our worshipping community with appropriate pastoral care, and extend Godly love and fellowship to all who attend. We see ourselves, then, as a first century church in the tradition of Acts 2:42-47.
Branches of the Cross is committed to creating true disciples of Jesus Christ, who are themselves led to generate true disciples the world over, resulting in a revival of the Christian faith. “Branches of the Cross are plantings of The Father whose fruit is imperishable.” (St. Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch [paraphrase]).
By proclaiming, manifesting, and teaching the Truth and Good News of the Kingdom of God, Branches of the Cross seeks to:
Branches of the Cross is a healing church. Healing prayer is a central focus of our church life and there are healing prayer services at scheduled times during the week, as well as personal prayer opportunities. In addition, a major ministry of Branches of the Cross is its Christian Healing Center (CHC). The CHC is dedicated to conducting intensive healing ministry through special healing events and healing missions. (See the CHC page for more details.)
The term “Anglican” simply means “of England.” It describes our form of worship as similar to the Church of England. Like the Church of England, we are not Roman Catholic, but our liturgy—the way we worship—is similar. Anglican liturgy generally includes the reading of Scripture, a sermon, and the sacrament of Holy Communion, along with praise music and fellowship.
Anglicans are Apostolic, which means that our beliefs and practices are rooted in the faith delivered by Jesus to his apostles and handed down to us through them. The basic beliefs are:
There are about seventy-five million Anglicans world-wide, affiliated in 38 provinces of what is known as the Anglican Communion. Branches of the Cross Anglican Church is part of the province of the Anglican Church of North America.
A vibrant, loving family of spirit-filled believers who abide in Christ, loving and serving God and neighbor.
Preach the gospel, bear witness, make disciples, and heal them
Our mission is the fourfold mission that Jesus gave His Apostles in Mark 16:15, Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:19-20, and Luke 9:1-2, among other places.
