Christianity was first introduced to the Americas by the Spanish in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, later the English and the Dutch established Protestant churches in their colonies as well. The establishment of Protestant churches in North America in the 17th century led to a vast diversification of religion. The Church of Aspen follows a doctrine similar to the church of England, however it also incorporates many Methodist and Lutheran customs into its liturgy and theology.

The Church of Aspen continues to be organized based on an episcopal polity. Theological authority is vested in bishops, each overseeing a diocese. The Archbishop of Konigshaven is the Primate and Metropolitan Archbishop all Aspen as well as the Presiding bishop of the College of Bishops, however they are only the first among equals of the members of the College of Bishops.
