Core Beliefs: "The Anglican Province of America is a fellowship of Christian people seeking to bring others to know the transforming love of our Lord and Savior Christ, given to us by the Father Almighty, through the power of the Holy Ghost, and incorporating them into the community of faithful people in our historic Anglican tradition."  The APA uses 1928 American edition of the Book of Common Prayer.

Short History:  "The history of the APA stretches back to 1968 with the founding of the American Episcopal Church (AEC) in response to the heretical teachings of Episcopal Bishop James Pike, the Social Gospel Movement in the mainline Protestant churches, and the liturgical movement spawned by the dramatic liturgical revisions of Vatican II. Our Diocese of the Eastern United States is the same diocese first erected in the old AEC, the first of the modern so-called 'Continuing Churches.'"  The APA is holding a joint synod in October 2017 with the Anglican Catholic Church, the Anglican Church in America, and the Diocese of the Holy Cross in a joint synod in October 2017 to establish full communion among those denominations.

Local Churches:  The closest church to Louisville is St. Paul's Church, 4100 Taylor Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45209.
