On behalf of All Saints Anglican Cathedral, Long Beach, I welcome you. You are invited to join us for worship. It would be a privilege to meet you! Our purpose is, “Reaching Long Beach and beyond with the transforming love of Jesus Christ.” Our mission is, “Building a church community that glorifies God, follows Jesus, and is empowered by the Holy Spirit for mission to reconcile a broken world to God.” We drink deep from one river that has three streams: Scripture (our authoritative guide in faith), Sacraments (our ancient practices and rhythms in faith), and Spirit (our peace and power in faith). May you experience God’s “Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.”
7:30am - Worship Service with Spoken Liturgy and Holy Communion (music third Sunday of the month)

“According to the early Christians, the church doesn’t exist in order to provide a place where people can pursue their private spiritual agendas and develop their own spiritual potential. Nor does it exist in order to provide a safe haven in which people can hide from the wicked world and ensure that they themselves arrive safely at an otherworldly destination. Private spiritual growth and ultimate salvation come rather as the byproduct of the main, central overarching purpose for which God has called and is calling us … That through the church God will announce to the world that he is indeed its wise, loving and just creator; that through Jesus he has defeated the powers that corrupt and enslave it; and that by his Spirit he is at work to heal and renew it.” Simply Christian - N.T. Wright
Discipleship Hour Series on Spiral of Silence with Pastor Bill Hull starting Sunday, January 6, 2019 at 9:00am
Seven sessions built around the theme A Spiral of Silence. During different periods of history and for various reasons the masses have been silenced. Public opinion made it dangerous to speak out and to speak up. We live in such a time where the freedom of speech is being abridged, the same with the freedom of religion. Christians are responsible to speak up, Dietrich Bonhoeffer said it well, "Not to speak is to speak, not to act is to act.” We are sent into the world to engage it. We are called to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. For seven Sundays we will explore the cultural conditions in which we live and ask the question, "Will we as a church relish the opportunity to love the world as Jesus did, and to engage the morally and conceptually confused inhabitants on this globe?"
