The word “Anglican” means that we trace the beginnings of our church to the Church of England, through the Reformation of the 16th Century, all the way back to the earliest English-speaking Christians. The Anglican Way is a way of being a Christian that is based–first and foremost–on the Bible and the patterns of worship recorded there.
Many of the traditions that you see in our services today actually go back thousands of years to the very beginnings of the church itself- just after Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection. By keeping these ancient traditions we are able to have deep roots into the way the Christian church has always worshiped God.
At Desert Mission Anglican Church we blend these ancient traditions with contemporary styles of worship to create a meaningful worship service with a firm foundation in the Scriptural and traditional history of the church.
Our local Anglican church is affiliated with the Anglican Mission in the Americas (usually just called The Mission), a society that exists to raise, release and support leaders and communities of faith to reach the lost for Jesus Christ in North America.
