The United Anglican Convergence Church (UACC) has been birthed to be a resource to the Body of Christ, meeting the needs of churches and ministry leaders by providing genuine fellowship, networking, covenant and accountability as well as teaching and training to equip the saints for the work of the ministry and the edifying of the body of Christ. We are a Convergence Communion that brings together the three historic streams of Christian worship and practice with a focus on unity within diversity. The UACC provides a way for independent churches, dioceses, parachurch ministries, and clergy to network and partner with each other for mutual edification and empowerment.
We are a vehicle for Kingdom relationship building and accountability, which is expressed through the relationships that are shared among its members. Each archdiocese, diocese, apostolate, order, or individual clergy belong on the basis of corporate fellowship and mutual trust between one another. It must be noted that as members of the Body of Christ, we must place a high value on integrity and moral excellence; therefore all of our members are expected to live lives representative of Christ and above reproach.
As a Convergence Communion, the UACC embraces various expressions of Christian worship and practice and is open to men and women who are actively serving in Christian ministry including Apostles, Prophets, Bishops, Senior Pastors, heads of ministries, and those commissioned in any capacity of the five-fold ministry. Christ has one Church that expresses its diversity based upon the regional and cultural contexts of its people. We have a fervent desire to see the prayer of our Lord Jesus Christ found in John 17:20-23, be manifested: “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.”
The basis for membership in the UACC is as follows:
Belief in and adherence to
- The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, as “containing all things necessary for salvation” and as being the rule and ultimate standard of faith.
- The Apostle’s Creed, as the Baptismal Symbol; and the Nicene Creed, as the sufficient statement of faith.
- The two Sacraments ordained by Christ Himself- Baptism and the Supper of the Lord- ministered with unfailing use of Christ’s word’s of institution, and the elements ordained by Him. Note: We do not limit the Sacraments to two. We believe that there are at least five more Sacraments or Sacramental acts.
- The Historic Episcopate, locally adapted in the methods of its administration to the varying needs of the nations and peoples called of God into the Unity of His Church.
- Convergence, defined as a blending of the three historic streams of the Christian Church.
- The continuing ministry of the Holy Spirit and the impartation of spiritual gifts and ministries today.
- The Unity of Christ’s Church (John 17:21-23).
