The International Anglican Orthodox Episcopal Communion was founded by the late Patriarch and Archbishop William Eusebius Brown in 2008. His vision was to continue building the Communion on 5 basic principles of the five-fold ministry, with an Ecumenical, Non-Judgmental, Independent, Convergence. He continued that mission until his death in 2018. The torch was passed to his close friend of 28 years in ministry ++ Archbishop Dr. Terry W. Harris of Honduras/USA after a unanimous decision by the International Board of Bishops in 2018.

The Patriarch and Presiding Bishop continues to lead the IAOEC Inc. with what he believes is a new day of building global and domestic Ecumenical bridges and spreading the Gospel in these last days.

On December 1, 2019, the IAOEC entered into Full Communion with The Worldwide Anglican Church, who celebrates their centenary in 2021. The Most Reverend Archbishop Dr. Terry Harris is quoted as saying “You can never cross the oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Along with the Patriarch and Matriarch of the WAC, their Graces, the ++ Most Reverend Christopher Lwanga Tusubira and the ++ Most Reverend Dr. Christine J. A. Mercy Johnson, a strong fellowship has been forged to combine efforts and lead a strong Church Fold with sturdy walls, and wise leadership.

Our Beliefs – Statement of Faith

Ecumenical | Non-Judgmental | Independent | Convergence – An Abyssinian Rite Communion

We believe in one God the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.  And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the only begotten, begotten of the Father before all ages, Light of Light, true God of true God, begotten, not made, of one essence with the Father, by whom all things were made, Who for us men and our salvation came down from heaven, and was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the Virgin Mary, and became man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate, and suffered and was buried; and the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven and sitteth at the right hand of the Father.  And He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead; of His kingdom there shall be no end.  And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the Giver of life, Who proceedeth from the Father, Who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, Who spake by the prophets.  In one Holy Universal and Apostolic Church; I acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sin; I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the age to come.  Amen.

Mission

Ecumenical | Non-Judgmental | Independent | Convergence – An Abyssinian Rite Communion

The International Anglican Orthodox Episcopal Communion (IAOEC) is a correlation of Christian leaders of churches, ministries and para ministries, that recognize the need for ministry authenticity, accountability, networking fellowship, trust and integrity, with an outlet for resources and continuing education facilitation.  Our mission is to become a catalyst and a resource agent for the unity and support of churches, ministries and par ministries that desire to full destiny.  Our key concern is that every member be provided with the necessary tools to mature the individual call and the vision of God as understood by each member, through the unification and the networking of our collective member resources.  The Communion is positioned to assist all good standing membership churches, ministries and par ministries in fulfilling their respective valid roles within the body of Christ.

Although the Communion often serves as a spiritual covering and/or mentorship for its members, the Communion is not a denomination.  It does not govern any of its member’s ministries.  Each ministry operates personally, privately, and independently of the Communion and the member ministry has no required reporting accountability in their personal church affairs in the way they operate to this Communion.  However, members of the Body of Christ should live the life representative of Christ and above reproach.  Therefore, we are there for strengthening and to make sure full integrity is there to the utmost.  To bring churches of different sizes (non-mega/medium to small sized churches) together for relationship building and development. To be loyal, committed and have no excuses.

or the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Hebrews 4:12
