In a divided world isn't it time for UNITY! Unfortunately, too many churches no longer exist to serve their members. The church for many people has become a place of judgement, fear, hypocrisy and intolerance. it is more concerned about sin than love, about finances than faith, and about growing members over growing souls. Our community offers a home that does not judge others or act as gatekeepers of the kingdom. We accept you for who you are and where you are on your journey. Please join us as we grow together spiritually in the teachings of Jesus. It is time to be what he has called us to be and to do what he has called us to do.
History of our denomination
Our church was founded by our Patriarch and Archbishop Primus Emeritus Rafael Seijo in the summer of 2013 and formed what was originally called the Charismas Church. Its beliefs focused on the fruits of the Holy Spirit. We started out in the Progressive Episcopal church which came out of the Southern Episcopal church which came out of the Episcopal Church USA.
In early August of 2013 Bishop Rafael Seijo and co-founder Fr. Edward Vaughan co-wrote Christ's Creed which became the foundation of a new church denomination. The church carried along with it a hand-full of clergy that continued to carry out their individual ministries.
In the fall of 2015 a decision was made at the suggestion of Bishop Fred Ashmead to rename the church, hence the combination of the names Episcopal based on the church structure and Catholic to represent the ancient faith traditions of the universal church of believers. In January 2016 the ECC started talks with the Anglican Free Communion International to become a member jurisdiction which was formally approved on 2/16/16. Rev. Matt Sevier founded St. George Theological Seminary to help train new clergy. In August 2021 after much reflection we realized our name no longer accurately represent our values and confusion was caused by having "catholic" in the title, so we became the Unity Episcopal Fellowship of America.
