St. Paul's Anglican Church belongs to the Diocese of Mid-America (DMA) of the
Reformed Episcopal Church (REC)

Anglican means "of England".

An Anglican Church relates to the Christian Church in England since the sixteenth  
century.  Services at  
St. Paul's Anglican Church include ceremony found in the  great  
cathedrals  of  England. It also has  ceremony  found in the village  and  
country
churches
of England. --"Like an English Country Church"

Father Clay, St. Paul's founding Rector, pointed out that, “Our church has members in
all age groups and from many
different denominational backgrounds.  St. Paul’s
personality is that of a warm and welcoming family.”

St. Paul's Anglican Church believes in the orthodox Faith "once delivered unto the
saints." [Jude 3]  Our  theology,  faith,  morals, and  practices are based upon  Holy  
Scriptures  interpreted  by  2000  years  of  Church
tradition, as summarized in the
Creeds.
 -- "Join us on this traditional path to worship."
"Bishop Royal U Grote, Jr was elected the Missionary Bishop and, in July
of 1991, moved to Houston, Texas.

The Lord has seen fit to continue to bless the DMA with consistent
annual growth of Parishes. The Diocese of Mid-America currently has a
geographical territory including Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa,
Kansas, Lousiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Montana,
Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Oklahoma, Texas, Wisconsin,
Wyoming and original parishes in Arizona and California."

"How it All Fits Together"
"The Anglican Church in North America says that the Church’s mission is
chiefly done through its mission agencies, and those agencies are chiefly
local congregations.  That’s how the transforming love of Jesus Christ
reaches the
local community.  That’s how the transforming love of Jesus
Christ reaches the nations."

Archbishop Robert Duncan (ACNA)
The Rt. Rev. Royal U. Grote, Bishop Ordinary (DMA)
transferred the authority of the office to his successor, The Most Rev.
Dr. Foley Beach.

“Our responsibility is to be faithful and diligent in preaching the Word; it
is up to the Holy Spirit’s timing for that Word to bear fruit.  Some of us will
preach the word with sermons.  Some of us will do this with service.
Some of us will do this with sacrifice.”

Archbishop Foley Beach (ACNA)
