The Story of All Saints Parish

Scripture passages from the Bible are often interpreted and misused to oppress minorities and to separate them from the rest of the community. This abuse of the Word of God causes great pain and division in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and Queer (GLBTQ) community. This supposedly scripture-based prejudice against GLBTQ persons cause many To turn away from religion.
All Saints Parish began serving the GLBTQ community in Ventura County in March 1997. Initially, we were founded as a way to provide a powerfully positive place for GLBTQ people, their families, friends, and supporters to proclaim their personal relationships with GOD. Our goal was and continues to be, to correct the misunderstandings that have separated some from the Body of Christ.
To those that have been ostracized, we show that scripture and Gospel should be used in a loving, accepting and affirming manner. It must not be used to castigate people on the basis of their race, gender or sexuality. In this light, we are a welcoming – open – honest place for ALL the people of God to worship and pray together as the people of God. We strive to make All Saints a place wherein all can feel the warm embrace of our loving Father.

ALL Are Welcomed, Affirmed and Encouraged!

The Evangelical Anglican Church In America (EACA)

The Evangelical Anglican Church In America is a denomination created within the Anglican/Catholic tradition within the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church and practices faithful stewardship of our sacramental heritage and traditions in the service of all God’s people. Though not in full communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury, the titular head of the Anglican Communion, the EACA shares with the Communion similar expressions of polity, doctrine and worship, such as acceptance of the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion as its doctrinal foundation and the use of the Book of Common Prayer as its liturgical standard. The EACA currently uses the New Zealand prayer book, and In all religious expression gives special attention to respecting all gender identities through the use of inclusive language in worship.
