Who We Are
Here you can expect a rich, authentic worship experience and a thoughtful liturgy offering a connection to an ancient faith. We cherish the confidence that comes from historical connectedness, from theology that is not tied to the whims of contemporary culture but to apostolic-era understandings of Christian faith and practice.
Upholding the Biblical and historic essentials of the Christian faith, all of our teaching, preaching and worship seek to offer a vibrant, living relationship with Christ.
We rely on the Holy Spirit to lead, guide and empower our worship and work, believing that He operates today as He has throughout history.
We believe the Christian life is lived out in true community. We invite you to join us. Our prayer is that in our worshipping community you will encounter the living God who through the Holy Spirit leads, restores, heals and transforms our lives.
Anglican Christianity is rooted in the ancient faith and practice of the first century church, tracing its history through missionaries to the British Isles and the development of Celtic Christianity early in the first millennium A.D.
Anglicanism upholds the authority of Scripture, is guided by Apostolic Tradition and is instructed by the English Reformation. Its essential statement of faith is expressed in both the Nicene and Apostles Creeds and is supplemented by the 39 Articles. It has received the English Book of Common Prayer, originally published in 1549, as its beautiful liturgical worship resource.
Driven by a missionary focus, Anglican Christianity has been about the work of making disciples for centuries and has expanded into a global church.
Christ Church Plano graciously sponsored and provided leadership for the group. Soon the small group reached out to Bishop Philip Jones offering the opportunity to lead the new church plant. In August of 2010, Philip and his family moved to Dallas to lead and pastor this group as they began the process of planting a new church. We are humbly grateful for the vision and leadership of David Roseberry and Ron McCrary who, along with Christ Church Plano, sponsored the All Saints Dallas initial church plant team.
All Saints Dallas is affiliated with the Anglican Mission in America (AMiA), an Anglican Society of Mission & Apostolic Works. We support the AMiA’s mission to raise up, release and support three-stream Anglican leaders, planters and communities of faith to reach the lost for Jesus Christ in the United States.
