Loving (Agape) and leading all people into the Kingdom of God as inspired by the Holy Spirit
Continuing the church modeled by the Acts of the Apostles
Traditional 7 Sacraments for all with appropriate catechesis (preparation)
Body of believers in Christ
Our Vision is that Jesus came to reinstitute the Kingdom of God on earth, lost by Adam’s error. (Gen 3:23-24, Luke 2:49, Matt 6:33, 9:35, 13:11, Mark 1:15)
This Vision manifests itself by our (the Church) Mission: To proclaim the Gospel of the kingdom throughout the world. (cf. Matt 10:7)
Our Strategy in this Mission is in preaching the Good News according to Jesus Christ (Matt 10:8), healing all of their sickness and afflictions (Luke 10:9), baptizing the many, in the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt 28:19), and making disciples, who are taught to observe all that He commanded (Matt 28:20).
We are Liturgical, Evangelical, and Charismatic. We live our vision and mission in the following ways:
Study and teach the Word of God (Holy Scripture) through the lens of Tradition. Our interpretation comes from over 2000 years of the teachings of the Holy Saints, all Holy and Truthful in Continuity. Studying must not become an end unto itself; the Holy Spirit moves hearts to conversion by inscribing the law in the hearts of believers.
Heal people of diseases and afflictions through the Name of Jesus Christ. Healing and miracles are a direct manifestation of God’s Grace, Christ’s Intercession, and the dunamis (power) of the Holy Spirit.
Provide extraordinary worship services to honor God through the Liturgy and Sacraments. This should be evident as the Shekinah (Glory of the Holy Spirit) becomes regularly evident in the lives of the believers (Cf. Matt 3:8-15,Luke 3:7-17).
Provide freely for the poor, focusing on widows and orphans (the lost or forgotten) in need.
The Charismatic Old Catholic Church is currently welcoming ordained clergy and those seeking ordination. We are flexible and we work closely with all priests, deacons and clergy who are seeking a new home. We want to be your servant leaders.
