May all peoples "...walk in newness of life...". - Romans 6:4
The historical "Free Protestant Episcopal Church" was founded by four ecumenically-minded Christian-catholic Bishops within Europe in 1897 A.D. Theses bishops were consecrated within the stream of Apostolic Succession and authorized to begin their ecumenical ministries from a combined heritage of Eastern Catholic and Anglican-Catholic churches. This church body has typically been internationally active, dynamic and ecumenical.
With over 115 years of global ministry and history within this independent jurisdiction, our religious and missionary organization is now known in the United States and in the Americas as: The Free Episcopal Church USA (TIFPECUSA).
In the spirit of Christin Unity, we also serve as the Southwest Province of the Anglican Free Communion.
