Welcome to The Church of the Ascension online.  As we pray and worship, we recognize that we are all called to do our part in building up of the Kingdom of God which Jesus came to proclaim.  In the midst of our faithfulness to that calling, we also discern that the role placed upon us is unique to our talents, gifts and skills.  As we work together, we can come to understand how it is that God weaves the efforts of all His people into one great tapestry of love and grace.   We hope that this week’s liturgy serves to strengthen your sense of calling as you strive to make the love of God known to everyone you meet.

Matthew 21:23-32 Christ's authority is questioned


Scripture, Tradition, Reason

We recognize the importance of tradition and reason in seeking to understand what it is that Scripture is saying.

We do not put reason or tradition over Scripture since it is the ultimate authority.
