Our Faith &
In Word, Sacrament and Tradition the Anglican Catholic Church proclaims the continuing guidance of the Holy Spirit in the life and witness of Catholic Christendom.
The early Church gathered inspired prophetic and historical writings, together with the Good News of Christ and the teachings of his Apostles, to form the Bible which is the Word of God. Under the guidance of the same Holy Spirit the Church in Holy Synod met for over four hundred years to resolve differing interpretations of biblical revelation. Oneness of Christian belief was declared to the Church through seven Ecumenical Councils whose teachings and credal statements are core beliefs.
The Apostles, who were appointed by Jesus, later appointed men in the Church to succeed them in their Apostolic Ministry. These men were called Bishops and in the New Testament mention is also made of elders ( or "presbyters") who shared in the care of souls by the Bishops. The Anglican Catholic Church maintains the Apostolic Ministry of Bishops , Priests and Deacons in an unbroken line of succession from the Apostles.
The Holy Spirit of God overshadowed the Blessed Virgin Mary and The Word was made flesh in the person of Jesus Christ ( Jn 1:1). Jesus continues to be present to His Church through visible signs called Sacraments and through which He brings the Grace of God to His people in the waters of Holy Baptism, in the Bread and Wine of the Mass, through Holy Oil and by the Laying on of Hands.
The Word was made flesh in the person of Jesus Christ to redeem humanity and after His Passion, Resurrection and Ascension into Heaven He remains with us in the Person of His Holy Spirit. In the visible and tangible Sacraments of the Church, Christ continues to come among us to continue His work of redemption. These truths are expressed in the worship of the Church using historic texts, rich symbolism and ritual, to proclaim the God who has renewed all of creation in his Son.
Our Church is a family of believers committed to living the faith once delivered to the Saints (Jude 1:3). We believe that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever” Hebrews 13:8
The tradition of the Anglican Catholic Church rejoices in the faith and witness of the Christian church of every age and resolves to continue in the fullness of that faith in this age and that which is to come.
