The Cathedral Church of the Resurrection held its inaugural service on February 11, 1996. Previously affiliated with another denomination, the priest and people of The Cathedral Church of the Resurrection heard God’s call to leave all behind and join The International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church.
The International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church itself officially began on June 12, 1992 in San Clemente, California. It was founded by Pentecostal, charismatic and evangelical pastors who wanted to embrace the rich tradition of the ancient sacramental church without abandoning the rich tradition of the Pentecostal and evangelical church.
Viewing these various traditions of the historic church as three distinct streams, these men had a vision of uniting them into one mighty river – a church that is fully Pentecostal, fully evangelical and fully sacramental. Thus The International Communion of the Charismatic Episcopal Church was born. Since our founding, this vision has spread throughout the United States of America, and to many other countries around the world. We the Cathedral Church of the Resurrection have a particular interest in reaching out to the Caribbean nations with this vision.
For seven years we held services in a rented facility. During that time we continued to embrace a vision of the Kingdom of God. As did Jesus on the earth, so are we to manifest God’s Kingdom – healing the sick, saving the lost, delivering the captives, feeding the hungry, raising the dead – such are the signs of the inbreaking of God’s Kingdom into the lives of men. Thus we are not content to worship in the sanctuary, we are also to witness in the streets, impacting and influencing the community for Christ.
On September 14, 2003, we held our inaugural service in our new home at 6701 SW 25th St. in Miramar, Florida. Having a place of our own will enable us to increase our mission and ministry, both in the sanctuary and in the streets. Though we have had a brief, but exciting past, we anticipate a long and exciting future.
Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Philippians 3:12
