Why We Value Anglicanism
The Anglican Church is rich in history and dynamic globally. Active in over 160 countries, Anglicanism accounts for approximately 80 million people spread around the world, making it one of the three main expressions of the Christian church.
Anglicanism has long been called the via media (the middle way) for its uncommonly diverse appeal. It has a unique blend of ancient habits, historic liturgy, sacramental living, evangelical commitment, aesthetic appreciation, and an undying emphasis on Jesus himself. Northwest Anglican seeks to plant churches that embody the best of this rich, beautiful way of loving God and loving people.
The history of Anglicanism is fascinating, from its English beginnings to its massive continuing global presence.
In North America, Anglicanism is typically known as The Episcopal Church, but recently it has experienced a critical revival and refining work in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), a recently established province. The ACNA has established a strong network of Anglican churches that are steeped in the historic Christian faith.
Anglicanism has recently caught the attention of many who have been hurt by the church but haven't given up their love for Jesus--nor their hope that his Church can, in fact, be a joy to belong to.
