Welcome to the Abyssinian Apostolic Church
Formerly known as the Apostolic Anglican Church of America

The Abyssinian Apostolic Church is a Sacramental + Charismatic (Pentecostal) + Evangelical church promoting the Gospel of Christ, and adhering to and acknowledging the faith and witness of the one, holy, universal (catholic), and apostolic church throughout the world.

The Abyssinian Apostolic Church is an intricate, inter-woven tapestry of  Christian ministry. We believe in, practice and promote the power of prayer, praise, worship and unity within the body of Christ. We seek to provide a platform of cultural relevance in worship expression, while maintaining the integrity of the ancient and traditional rites and rituals of the Church in modernized expression. We are Sacramental church, observing the Sacraments of the Church.

We are committed to the movement known as the “Convergence Movement” – meaning that we actively bring together in one cohesive expression of worship, the Evangelical, the Charismatic/Pentecostal, as well as the Liturgical/Sacramental modes of worship.

We are in full communion with the Apostolic Communion of Anglican Churches and we share inter-communion with several other national and international Church bodies.



Greeting to all,
I would like to express my appreciation and profound excitement concerning the Apostolic Communion of Anglican churches. The Abyssinian Apostolic Church, Archdiocese of The Mid-West of the One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church by Divine Providence, To God be the Glory. Thanks to Archbishop, Darel E. Chase, Ph.D., OSP. The knowledge, understanding and wisdom I was exposed to during the Holy Convocation was life changing to anyone who declares their servant-hood to Christ and his Church. There is a time and a season to everything under the sun. The time for truth in the church and the true Church is upon us. Thank you again Archbishop Darel E. Chase my friend and my mentor. To God Be The GLORY!!!!!!

The Abyssinian Apostolic Church is a church that strongly believes in the power of prayer, an exuberant praise, and heartfelt worship. I believe the Abyssinian Apostolic Church to be a church that strives to maintain the rich heritage of the original church as founded by Jesus and His disciples. I enjoy the fact that Abyssinian Apostolic Church is a church that practices a blended service of melding the Evangelical, the Pentecostal, and Sacramental traditional streams of the church commonly known as the “Convergence Movement.” I am Glad to be a part of this grand ole church.
