1.We use the Book of Common Prayer (BCP) which is a common element which binds all Anglican churches together. 2. We consider ourselves both catholic (universal) and protestant. We are both ancient and contemporary 3. We believe in the fruits of the Spirit. 4. We believe in the seven sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist, Reconciliation, Marriage, Holy Orders, and Anointing of the sick. 5. We believe the Eucharist is a means of God bestowing his Grace upon us in a direct way. You can believe it is a symbolic act, a spiritual presence, or real presence ( transubstantiation ) all views are welcome. 6. We believe all should be allowed to take communion without exception. For one to wish to take communion they must be under the work of the Holy Spirit or no such desire would exist. 7. We believe that a person can and should be baptized in a way that they choose: as an infant, as a child, or as an adult by full emersion, pouring or sprinkling. The most important things is their intention. 8. We believe marriage is between two consenting adults. 9. Clergy are not required to be celibate. We believe from a pastoral perspective that is better to have a family so one can relate to the everyday struggles of your flock. 10. We believe that anyone who feels called to ministry should explorer if it right for them and not be restricted by their gender, sexual orientation, marital status, or due to being over a certain age. 11. We believe the Apostles' Creed and the Nicene Creed are sufficient statements of the Christian faith. 12. We believe the bible is the inspired word of God and written by man with the intention of drawing us closer to God. 13. We believe that a woman should have the right to control her own reproductive system, therefore, we believe in birth control. as a means to prevent pregnancy. 14. We believe we do not have a right to tell a woman not to have an abortion. That decision is between her and God. We will spiritually support her no matter what choice she makes. 15. We believe in the supreme commandments of Jesus Christ to love God and to love others as our selves. 16.We believe in the innate value and equality of all human beings. 17. We believe that sin is when we do not treat others as God has commanded us to and we must forgive others to be forgiven. 18. We do not believe that a personal confession to a priest is a requirement for absolution, but rather is optional as each of us can appeal directly to God. 19.We believe that the bible contains everything necessary for one to have eternal life. 20. We believe in the three pillars of: tradition, scripture, and reason as the cornerstones of our faith.
