Welcome to King of Glory Anglican Church, we are located in the heart of Miami–Dade County. Our parish came into existence in the autumn of 2006. It began as the vision of six households. Their desire was to form a community of Christians that would be intimately connected to the ancient faith possessed by the church before the schisms that brought about so many additions and subtractions to the original apostolic faith. This vision has become our mission, and as a result, we presently have over 25 households that are also committed to the bringing the ancient and forgotten Christianity of the apostles and church fathers to our community. As a result, we have been blessed beyond measure. Just one visit to our parish and one knows that it is a special place, an oasis in the dessert.

We welcome you to pay us a visit. We are located in central Miami-Dade County, in the village of Miami Springs, between the golf course and the Springs Circle. This central location places us no further than 30 minutes from any point in Miami–Dade County. You are most cordially invited to would join us for our education hour which we call “the Sunday Forum,” and for our Sunday worship, which we call “The Holy Eucharist.” We are confident that you find the same transforming faith that our Lord Jesus passed on to his disciples, and that they passed down to us through the centuries to the faithful church, without additions, & without subtractions.

The peace of the Lord be always with you.

About Us

In the fall of 2006, King of Glory parish was established. We began to gather in rented halls throughout the city, first in FIU, at a university hall, & then in several hotel conference rooms. In those first two years the parish grew to about fifteen households. Our parish continues to grow steadily; we now have over 25 households and are growing. In 2008 we found a home; a church building owned by Grace Lutheran church in Miami Springs, they opened their doors to us and made it possible for us to have a permanent home. We now gather in a beautiful stone building, to teach, encourage, and explain the faith, but most importantly to worship the Triune God, in whom live daily.

Our story is born out of the content of our faith, and the power of our practices. Our story is nothing less than that of individual lives and corporately experiencing what occurs when we who live in the 21st century, enter into the Holy Apostolic Tradition of first millennium. Time after time, we are told by those who join us that our ancient apostolic faith has transformed their Christianity from a life of thoughts about God, into an actual life with God. The difference between the two is subtle, but the effects are huge. It is the difference that exists between knowing about Christ-likeness and being transformed into Christ-likeness. It is this story of transformation that has encouraged us to look at the future with confidence. We trust that the Lord will continue to bless our work in this parish, add to our numbers, and multiply our ministry opportunities to our community. We invite you to become part of this story.

Our Message

The heart of our message is the gospel or the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to the apostles and the early church fathers the gospel is comprised of the three following parts:

Trinity: The first part of the Gospel is the message that the one true God exist in three persons: Father & creator, Son & victor, Spirit & giver of life. There exists within the triune God, a life that is primarily characterized by a communion of love. Hence, God is love.

Incarnation: The second part of the gospel is the message that God the Son took on flesh, and became one of us. So that even after the human race had turned way from God under the enticement of evil (sin & death), the Son might still bring the love of God to us, destroy evil, and win us back into his loving Trinitarian communion. This incarnate Son took evil on, He died to destroy sin and death (sacrifice), He rose from the grave victorious over death and as the victor (Savior), He gave life eternal to all mankind. Because of Jesus’ resurrection, eternal life in the flesh has been attained for all humanity (the final resurrection).

Restoration: The third part of the gospel is the message that by the Son’s great victory, He now has the authority to draw all mankind back into God’s Trinitarian family by pouring out upon mankind His life giving Spirit (baptism). This Spirit now places the presence of God’s power within humans, thus making those persons incarnations of God (Christians- little Christs), here and now, healing and restoring (saving) them to what they were meant to be: whole, and living spirits that dwell within the Trinity.


Our Faith

We are Orthodox, but not Eastern

We are Orthodox because we, like the Holy Eastern Orthodox, find the fullness of apostolic faith in that same Holy Tradition which existed during the first 1000 years of the church. Consequently, like all Orthodox, we reject any additions or subtractions from the ancient faith. Like all Orthodox, we believe that the doctrine or dogma of the faith as expounded in the documents produced by the three ecumenical creeds and the seven ecumenical councils. Like all Orthodox we affirm that in them the church has spoken with one voice, and therefore, they alone contain the teachings that can be considered undisputed. The substance of our faith is identical.

Nevertheless, unlike the Eastern Orthodox, we are distinctly western. The difference between us is cultural only, and not doctrinal. Unlike the east we express the apostolic faith with western customs. We use a western liturgy, western vestments, western forms of sacramentality, western music, and a western calendar. In summary, we believe that Anglo-Catholicism is "Western Orthodoxy."

We are Catholic, but not Roman

We are also Catholic because, like all Catholics, we are Episcopal, Sacramental, Liturgical, and Creedal. The episcopacy of our clergy is of apostolic succession. Like all Catholics, our sacramental practices involve signs, gestures, vestments, bells, iconography, incense, and water, bread, and wine. Like all Catholics, our worship practices involve the same ceremonies and music of the ancient church. Like all Catholics we find the summation of the faith in the catholic creeds. Enter an Anglo--Catholic church and there will be little doubt that you are in a Catholic Church.

However, unlike Roman Catholicism, Anglican Catholicism holds strictly to that which has been believed by all, in all places, at all times, and therefore we reject the medieval additions of the Roman Catholic Church. We are Unlike the Roman church in that we reject the required celibacy of clergy, the use of indulgences, the teaching of purgatory, the teaching that there exists a Papal Infallibility that is independent from the voice of the undivided church, and several other innovations of this kind. We reject these doctrines for two reasons; first, because they are innovations of late entrance into Holy Tradition, and second, because they do not pass the canonical test of scripture. In summary, we believe that Anglo-Catholicism is an “Apostolic Catholicism” that pre-dates Roman Catholicism and is in perfect alignment with the faith of the undivided church.

We are Evangelical, but not Protestant

We are Evangelical because, like all Evangelicals, our main focus is on what the bible calls the salvation. Like all Evangelicals, we believe that this salvation of individuals as well as of the world comes about by the power of the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Like all Evangelicals, we place a high value on the power of biblical preaching, and on the centrality of the word of God for doctrine. In fact, we see the word of God as the canon (measure) and the ultimate authority over all that is necessary for faith and salvation.

Yet, unlike the Protestants, we do not accept subtractons from the faith of the undivided church. such as looking to the bible alone for instruction in the Christian life; unlike Protestants we also look to the Holy Tradition out of which the bible came. For this reason, Anglican Evangelicalism does not protest against everything that occurred before the Protestant Reformation. Unlike most Evangelicals we believe that the traditions of the church handed down to us prior to medieval innovations is truly “Holy Tradition.” We are convinced that within this apostolic Holy Tradition of the undivided church we find both the true interpretation and the true application of the gospel.

We Are Orthodox, Catholic, and Evangelical

The Mission


We see our mission as that ancient mission which was assigned by Christ to the church from the very beginning, and that is to embody and deliver Christ’s salvation of the world, here and now. We have threefold approach to our endeavor.

First, we enter into this ancient mission by embracing the apostolic faith just as it was delivered to the undivided church of the first millennium, through worship, teaching, and practice.

Second, we enter into this ancient mission by participating in the life and power of the God, united to the incarnate Lord Jesus Christ, and seeking to be made into the image (icon) of his glory through the enablement of God’s Holy Spirit.

Third, we enter into this ancient mission by sharing our and faith and practices with our community. We do this by serving in both word and deed. We serve the needy with “Food for the Poor.” We serve those needing rehabilitation with “the Miami Rescue Mission.” We serve the young in a local college ministry for graduate students. We serve widows and orphans through a mobile coffee bar that sells coffee grown by Rwandan genocide victims.

Life at King of Glory Church has this threefold message at its core. Consequently, the parish has a unique feel; one that draws its participants deeper into the life of God in Christ. It is our intention to bring many with us on this journey of faith.

Times & Directions


“The Sunday Forum” is a class on Apostolic Christianity and is held at 10 am in the fellowship hall.

This class provides the opportunity to ask questions about the faith, and to get plugged into the church's ministry. In the class we examine the ancient writings of the church such as its creeds, catechisms, liturgies, and councils, and we do this from a uniquely biblical perspective.

We celebrate Holy Eucharist at 11:30 am in the Sanctuary.

The service is a contemporary version of the ancient western communion liturgy.
Children’s ministry is available during this service.
