We are a church of the great command,

the great commission and The great tradition.

The Great Command & The Great Commission
Jesus said
, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. This is the first and Great Commandment, and the second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

&

 “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey all that I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always, even to the ends of the earth.”

 

For over 2,000 years now, the Church has had one, simple calling: to know Christ and to make him known.

This, in sum, is the Great Command and the Great Commission.

 

The Great Tradition

Our Anglican worship service is based on the Book of Common Prayer that was first compiled in 1549 by Thomas Cranmer. While the Book of Common Prayer has since undergone many revisions, it is still acknowledged as one of the ties that bind the Anglican Communion together. Our service today is based on the Book of Common Prayer of 1662.


who we are

We are a local, regional and global church.

Locally, we serve the southwest area of Fort Worth and we are part of the Fort Worth diocese, which consists of about 60 churches.  The Rt. Rev. Jack Iker is our Bishop.

Regionally, we belong to Anglican Church of North America (ACNA). The Anglican Church in North America unites 132,000 Anglicans in 1,004 congregations across the United States, Canada, and Mexico into a single Church. On

April 16, 2009, ACNA was recognized as a province of the global Anglican Communion, by the Primates of the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans. The Most Rev. Dr. Foley Beach is our Archbishop of the Church.

Globally, we are part of the Anglican Communion, which has 80 million members in over 165 countries. We are a great big family. And, that’s just what our heavenly Father wants us to be – brothers and sisters in Christ, from every tongue, tribe, and nation around the world. And so we are.  Like every family, we have our joys, and we have our struggles. Yet, we are ultimately bound by the Christian Faith and Order given to us by our Lord in Scripture.

what we believe

We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. It contains all things necessary for our salvation, and is the basis of our belief and practice. We believe the Sacraments are given to us by Jesus Christ our Lord as outward and visible signs of his grace given to us inwardly. We believe the Holy Spirit is given to us at Baptism for our sanctification, with gifts and charisms necessary for the work of ministry in our daily life and living.

why we are here

We gather every Sunday morning to celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who himself rose from the grave early in the morning on the first day of the week, for the forgiveness of our sins and the hope of everlasting life.

What to expect on Sundays...


Whether you are new to church or haven’t been for a long time, you are most welcome at Christ the Redeemer. Here is some of what to expect on a Sunday morning.

 

First, please come as you are. From suits to sandals, we want you to feel at home with us. Second, when you come in our doors, you will be greeted by one of our members. They can help you locate the nursery, grab a cup of coffee, and find your way around our parish home.

 

Also, children are welcome in church. But, if you prefer, we have a nursery with at least 2 trained staff. You are welcome to bring your child in at any point during the service. Many parents bring them during Communion, when they may be blessed by one of our priests.


...and what to expect at our worship service.


To get you started, there are two basic things you will want to know about our worship service. FIRST, our worship service is highly participatory! Together, we sing, pray, read Scripture, hear a message that applies to our daily lives, take communion, and are charged to go and make disciples of all nations! SECOND, we do these things because this is what the Church has always done! Our worship service is taken directly from what Jesus said to  the 12 apostles: "Do this in remembrance of me."

 

 

Of course, so much more could be said about the beauty and depth of our worship service, but the best way is to “come and see” for yourself!
