We adopt a “mere Christianity” approach to Christian doctrine, emphasizing first those essential beliefs that have united Christians across the ages. We joyfully affirm the historic Nicene and Apostles’ Creed and embrace an orthodoxy that demonstrates the truth, beauty, and goodness of Christianity.
Anglicanism is a global and historic Christian communion comprised of over 77 million people, rooted in the ancient beliefs and practices of the church. Anglican congregations vary widely in their style and appearance. Anglicans understand the importance of tradition while recognizing the final authority of God’s word over all matters of faith and practice. Anglicans share a commitment to Bible-centered preaching and teaching, sacramental worship, a life of prayer, and a structure that honors our connections to other Christians around the world and throughout history. To be Anglican is to be part of a global Christian family and to be rooted in mainstream, historic Christianity. With Anglicans around the world, we subscribe to the Jerusalem Declaration.
