About the AEC


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 African Episcopal Church is an international community of the Apostolic Rite, observing the faith and maintaining the witness of the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church throughout the world.

The African Episcopal Church (AEC) is a faith community that is committed to the principles and precepts of the Word of God, proclaiming holiness as our standard of life, and is a is a multi-cultural ministry of prayer, 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 liturgies of the Church in modernized expression.

We affirm the following:

  • We affirm that the Decalogue (Ten Commandments) is the rule of moral law.

  • The Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds as our personal and corporate declarations and affirmations of faith.

  • We affirm both men and women as Clergy of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

  • That Apostolic Succession of Clergy is necessary for the proper and authoritative administration of the Holy Sacraments of the Church.

  • The Seven (7) Sacraments of the Holy Church; Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Holy Matrimony, Reconciliation, Anointing of the Sick, Holy Orders.
