Who we are
Ascension is an Anglican/Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Central Florida.
We are a family-friendly church whose focus of worship is on our Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Word preached and God’s Sacrament’s celebrated. We have a passion for combining the ancient and orthodox aspects of the faith with a modern and useful presentation.
Where we come from
The Episcopal Church is part of the World-Wide Anglican Communion. The Anglican Church was born out of the Reformation in the 1500’s and worked to combine the power of the preached-word with the ancient presentation of the Holy Sacraments. The Latin term “Via Media” or, “the middle way” is used to describe our liturgical nature. The word “episcopal” is from the Greek word for bishop, as we stand with the historic three-fold ministry of bishops, priests, and deacons.
Where we’re headed
We are a community that wishes to live intentionally into God’s call on our lives. Our vision is to create levels of opportunities and experiences that will lead people at every stage in their faith journey to a deeper relationship with God and each other.
What this means for you
We believe that God has called Ascension to two goals:
The first is to welcome all people into our community with joy and care. We all walk through the doors of our church carrying our “stuff.” God calls us to bring it all to the cross.
The second goal is to equip the saints for the work of God. No matter what our life situation, married or single, young or retired, local or new to the area, we hope to offer you the tools that will allow your faith to be alive, effective and joy-filled!!
