I am a part of the Continuing Evangelical Episcopal Communion serving within the Apostolate of Saint Chad. The CEEC is a Christian Convergent Communion, which blends the Evangelical, Charismatic, and Sacramental streams of the Christian faith.
We seek to live balanced lives that include all that God has for his people. Our use of the words Charismatic, Evangelical and Sacramental are as follows:
We believe that God is at work today in the Church and through the Church. We are open to the working of the Holy Spirit in and through our lives. Jesus said that He would send the Holy Spirit to be our teacher, counselor, and guide. As God’s children, the Holy Spirit helps us live a life that is pleasing to God. He gives each of His children gifts to equip them to serve and build each other up as we grow in our faith and knowledge of Him.
We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament contain all things necessary for salvation. We are committed to proclaiming the Gospel “Good News” that we can have a relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. We are called to be disciples (students) of our Lord Jesus and to study His written word—The Holy Bible.
We celebrate the living historic forms of worship (liturgies) of the Church. The liturgy provides a solid theological framework for us to glorify God and to receive all that He has for us. God’s grace intersects our lives in tangible ways—such as in the Eucharist (Holy Communion) and baptism. The Eucharist (Holy Communion) is part of every worship service.
