The Falls Church Anglican (TFCA) is a church community whose life is centered in Jesus Christ and whose identity is shaped by the Word of God. We are in the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic (DOMA) led by Bishop John Guernsey. DOMA is a diocese in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), led by Archbishop Robert Duncan.
The Falls Church Anglican disaffiliated with The Episcopal Church in the United States in December, 2006, over doctrinal differences.
We trace our history to the New Testament church, but our local life commenced in colonial Virginia in 1732, when our church was built on the road to the falls of the Potomac river. By tradition a part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, we worship God together as a church family using forms of worship that are both traditional and contemporary, always in conformity to Anglican standards embodied in the historic Book of Common Prayer. We are, first of all, followers of Jesus Christ. We affirm our unity with all Christians who call Jesus Lord and seek to follow His way.
