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.
Famous quotes containing the words king, family and/or churches:
“I know I have the body of a weak and feeble woman, but I have the heart and stomach of a king, and of a king of England, too.”
—Elizabeth I (15331603)
“Every family should extend First Amendment rights to all its members, but this freedom is particularly essential for our kids. Children must be able to say what they think, openly express their feelings, and ask for what they want and need if they are ever able to develop an integrated sense of self. They must be able to think their own thoughts, even if they differ from ours. They need to have the opportunity to ask us questions when they dont understand what we mean.”
—Stephanie Martson (20th century)
“I fancy it must be the quantity of animal food eaten by the English which renders their character insusceptible of civilisation. I suspect it is in their kitchens and not in their churches that their reformation must be worked, and that Missionaries of that description from [France] would avail more than those who should endeavor to tame them by precepts of religion or philosophy.”
—Thomas Jefferson (17431826)
