Christ the King Anglican Mission Douglasville, GA Canon Edward Warner - Vicar Christ the King Anglican Church, Douglasville, Georgia, began as a home-based church in 2005 with Fr Edward Warner as Priest in charge. Within a few months, the mission obtained permission to rent Arbor Place Community for our Sunday worship service. Fire struck the building in December of 2005, forcing our Christmas services to be held in member's homes. After an article about the church and the fire, St. Theresa's Catholic Church offered us the use of a room in their administration building. Services continued at St. Theresa's until June 2007, when we were invited back to the rebuilt Community Center, and services were held there until September 2010, when we moved to our current location in Iroquois Commercial Park. With the help of the owner and several members, a raw office/warehouse was converted into a beautiful place for worship and fellowship. Today our Sunday worship is held at 9:30 a.m. The Rev. Canon Edward L. Warner Fr. Ed Warner is a native of New Jersey. He was baptized and confirmed at St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, New Brunswick, NJ. Fr.

He was president of the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance. From 1970 - 1974 he was an elected to the Kansas City Board of Education. In 1977, Fr.

Ed began supplying for Anglicans in Douglasville in 2003, and has now served as Vicar of Christ the King for ten years. In 2014, the Bishop made him an honorary canon of St. Alban’s Cathedral.

St. Paul tells us that we are to hand on to our heirs the unchanged faith that was handed down to us.  We believe that the faith that Christ revealed to us and which we find in Holy Scripture is a faith that does not change with the times.  It is Truth, and as such, it depends on the Author of all Truth, Christ, and not on the whims and fancies of human societies.  And just as it was a Truth sufficient for the Apostles of the 1st century, sufficient for the Christian martyrs during the Roman persecutions, sufficient for the Christians who over the centuries have faced wars, famine, pestilence, and tyranny, so it is sufficient for us today.  In a simple, biblical phrase, to be Anglican means to be "in the world, but not of it".
