At IAC, we invite everyone who belongs to our family to serve the Lord as His hands, feet, and indeed His whole body! We believe serving is an extension of worship, and is an outpouring of our thanksgiving for His abundant mercy and grace.

About International Anglican Church
At IAC, we want the gospel of Jesus Christ to define who we are and shape what we do. We are rooted in the sacred traditions of the church, passionate about the Scriptures, and utterly dependent on the Holy Spirit. We were planted in America by the Anglican Church of Rwanda and have been uniquely shaped by that relationship.
