A warm welcome to the official website of the Province of the Holy Spirit-Anglican Rite. We are “Traditional Anglican Christians” seeking only to be what the Church was called to be. We continue the faith and practice of the Church that was established in this country when the country was first founded. We are not seeking to change the apostles’ doctrine and we don’t want to be a part of the new-age movement which puts men and self before our commitment to love and serve God and our fellow man. We are standing firm for the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ and His Church.
We believe that the Holy Scripture is the Word of God, inerrant and infallible, given for all men for all times that they might receive the salvation, for which God sent his Son. The style of worship may vary from one congregation and region to another; however we are common in the “Faith once delivered to the Saints.” Some of our congregations use the more classical style of Anglican Worship, such as the United States Book of Common Prayer (1928 edition) as their standard of worship. Others use newer liturgies and more contemporary music. The key is to proclaim Christ to the world, and meet the needs of those individuals in growing them in their faith. We are ALL CALLED to minister.
We believe in the importance of the Sacraments in every churchman’s life, that God has given through His Church, to assist us in our daily walk with Christ by His will. Two were ordained by Christ, that being baptism and the Holy Communion, and five commonly called sacraments that were ordained by His apostles whom he appointed to organize and to build His Church. These Sacraments are the things that bind us to Him and each other.
