The King's Family of Churches (also known as the Evangelical Episcopal Church) is an apostolic family of churches with its origins in the Evangelical missions in Spain, particularly in Friends of God mission society, that came to embrace the Convergence Movement of Christianity. The KFC states that it should not be considered a splinter group of any other denomination or communion, because it was formed by the unity of small denominations, independent churches and former denominational congregations who came together the movement known as the Convergence of Christianity.
At the same time, the KFC follows the practices, beliefs and life of the early Celtic church, the Lutheran Reformation, and the Anglican Church, which they feel became a signpost for the Ancient-Future faith and the Convergence Movement.

“With a new familiarity and a flesh-creeping homeliness entirely of this unreal, materialistic world, where all sentiment is coarsely manufactured and advertised in colossal sickly captions, disguised for the sweet tooth of a monstrous baby called the Public, the family as it is, broken up on all hands by the agency of feminist and economic propaganda, reconstitutes itself in the image of the state.”
—Percy Wyndham Lewis (18821957)
