About the African Episcopal Church…

The African Episcopal Church was founded in April of 2005 for the sole purpose of restoring the Church back to its ancient roots by uniting the three major streams of Evangelical, Charismatic, and Sacramental/Liturgical. The AEC is an international community of faithful believers, observing the faith that was once delivered and received by all, and maintaining the witness of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church throughout the world.
