The Anglican Mission

Our Vision of Mission

Richmond Emmanuel Church belongs to a missionary society called The Anglican Mission in Canada. The Anglican Mission in Canada is a missionary movement focused on raising up vibrant and authentic followers of Jesus Christ through organic congregations and a lifestyle of Christ-likeness. We practice a “micro-macro” strategy – making disciples on a micro level through developing intimacy with Jesus and growing in relationship in community groups, which will enable healthy growth of our churches and other apostolic works.

We celebrate the 3 historic streams of the Christian faith:

The Scripture
We hold that the Bible guides our lives and is authoritative for us individually and for the Church at large (known as the evangelical tradition).

The Sacraments
We believe the Sacramental life is embodied in the practices and teachings Christians have held throughout the centuries as expressed in the historic Creeds and 39 Articles of Religion. Our faith tradition has a variety of worship expressions, including the sacraments instituted by Jesus (known as the catholic tradition).

The Spirit
We trust God’s Spirit is at work in the Church and the world, manifesting His power and preparing us for ministry through the deposit of his gifts (known as the charismatic tradition).

Our Beginnings

The Anglican Mission in Canada has roots in the worldwide Anglican Communion through the Anglican Mission, and receives and accepts oversight and accountability through a College of Consultors. This College of Consultors serves as guardians and overseers, and are responsible for preserving the vision and direction of the Anglican Mission as it expands across the globe.
