This Dr. What programs are available? Where can I find more information about church planting? With an enthusiasm necessarily aggressive, and a purpose brooking no defeat, the setting up of the Kingdom of our Lord was at length accomplished in this favored land, and the history of the Church of England is a striking commentary on the bidding and the conditional promise of our text.

It was a tribute of willing praise on the part of the Primate of all England and of the Dean and Chapter of this Cathedral Church, to the sister Church in Scotland;--now, thank GOD, arising in majesty to possess her ancient heritage; and in this gracious act thousands and tens of thousands of Churchmen across the sea rejoiced.

The revivals in the Virginia backcountry had swelled the numbers of Presbyterians, Methodists, and especially Baptists in Virginia in the s and s. Three setts of Persons of both sexes, came in Succession. Distinctives of Anglican belief[ edit ] The Thirty-Nine Articles played a significant role in Anglican doctrine and practice. In which time of need there was no bishop to shepherd the scattered flock, because no diocesan organization had been set up in the new land; and the bestowal of the episcopate thereto seemed more unlikely than ever before, since it involved an oath of allegiance to the British Crown which no American could take.

Finally, like Roman Catholics, most if not all Anglicans reject Calvinism, with its emphasis on predestination and conversion, and the evangelical ethos often associated with that theology. The acquisition of Canada from France as part of the peace settlement along with the cost of the war led Britain to reassess the organization and management of its colonies. On the doctrine of justificationfor example, there is a wide range of beliefs within the Anglican Communion, with some Anglo-Catholics arguing for a faith with good works and the sacraments. Looking across the Atlantic, we remember the varied gifts and graces of the far-seeing and faithful Strachan, of Toronto; the devoted Mountain, of Quebec, faithful amidst the pestilence and faithful unto the end; the patient Feild, whose life was freely spent in ministering to the fishermen of New Foundland; the saintly Addington Venables, who in bodily weakness and acquainted with grief toiled so persistently for his poor negro flock in the Bahamas, giving his life for his sheep; the excel lent Coleridge, the friend of Keble, who exchanged his work in the Barbados for the charge of that great seminary of missioners, S.

He preached an hour and an half. This mode of organization also prevailed in early modern Britain, but the American colonies, lacking a bishop, entrusted enormous authority to local church vestries composed of the most eminent laymen.

The Anglican Church was strongest in the Southern colonies, where it was the established religion. Historically, the most influential of these — apart from Cranmer — has been the 16th-century cleric and theologian Richard Hookerwho after was increasingly portrayed as the founding father of Anglicanism.

As political events developed at the same time, freedom from a central religious authority came to be one of the principal values of the independence movement. The annals of the world's progress in morals, letters, arts, science, intelligence, in public and private virtues, and in Christianity, record the glories of this ideal reign and will bear its story to the latest years of man.
