Mission & vision
We seek to build the kingdom of God on the central coast of California, spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the beauty of the Anglican faith. We love beautiful worship and want a deep catechesis and formation, both rooted in the Holy Scriptures in the oldest tradition of English speaking Christianity. We believe strongly in loving people into the Church, and offer many opportunities to experience and to practice hospitality.
What we believe
We are traditional Anglicans, and thus, our statement of faith is the theology of the Creeds and the theology found in the traditional Book of Common Prayer; we use the 1928 edition for our services at Christ the King.
Christ the King Anglican Church is a mission church in the diocese of Mid-America of the Reformed Episcopal Church (Anglican Church in North America). The Most Rev’d Ray R. Sutton is our diocesan bishop, and the Rt. Rev. Walter R. Banek is our suffragan bishop.
Staff & Clergy
We are in the beginning stages of a Vicar search. Our temporary Vicar, Father Brian Foos, visits about once a month. He is assisted primarily by Father Kent Bartel and Father Steve Macias who also visit about once a month. All three are native Californians who live in various parts of the state. We have the Eucharist two to three Sundays a month, with morning prayer on the other Sunday(s).

Christ the King was founded in the Fall of 1992 as a Reformed Episcopal Mission. Though it has always been a smaller mission parish, it has produced three priests over the years, all three of which still serve in various parts of the Reformed Episcopal Church.
