ONE FAITH, ONE BAPTISM
We hold to the doctrines of the first Seven Ecumenical Councils. We believe the Holy Scriptures to be the revealed word of God. We believe in the Apostle's and Nicene Creeds. We believe in the Seven Sacraments. We believe in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist. We believe in the sanctity of human life. We believe marriage as being defined as between one man and one woman. We accept the ordained ministry of male Bishops, Priests, Deacons in Apostolic Succession.
WE BELIEVE THE HOLY SCRIPTURES to be the revealed Word of God, containing all things necessary to salvation, and that salvation is found only through Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE THE APOSTLES AND NICENE CREEDS to be sufficient statements of personal and standard of Faith and they mean exactly what they say.
WE BELIEVE THE CHRISTIAN MORALITY of the New Testament is the sole guide for the Church.
WE BELIEVE THE SACRED TRADITION of what the Lord Taught, the Apostles Preached, Fathers of the Church Preserved.
WE BELIEVE THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS, outward signs of inward and spiritual grace.
WE BELIEVE IN THE REAL PRESENCE OF CHRIST in the Holy Eucharist and deem it as a mystery.
WE RECOGNIZE & SUPPORT the sanctity of human life, beginning at conception.
WE BELIEVE THAT MARRIAGE defined as the lifelong union of one man and one woman - is God's loving provision for procreation and family life, and that sex outside such marriage is against God's law.
WE ACCEPT THE ORDAINED MINISTRY OF MALE Bishops, Priests, and Deacons in Apostolic Succession (as in Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches), and as in Eastern churches, married men may be ordained.
WE WORSHIP using the traditional 1928 Book of Common Prayer, the Anglican Missal, the American Missal and the 1940 Hymnal. We approve the use of the King James (Authorized) translation of the Bible as well as the Revised Standard Version and the Jerusalem Bible.
We do not compromise on matters of Faith and Order, Doctrine, Discipline or Morality.
HERE WE STAND
Prayer For the Unity of God’s People
O GOD, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, our only Saviour, the Prince of Peace; Give us grace seriously to lay to heart the great dangers we are in by our unhappy divisions. Take away all hatred and prejudice, and whatsoever else may hinder us from godly, union and concord: that as there is but one Body and one Spirit, and one hope of our calling, one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, one God and Father of us all, so we may be all of one heart and of one soul, united in one holy bond of truth and peace, of faith and charity, and may with one mind and one mouth glorify thee; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
The mission of The Holy Catholic Church Anglican Rite is to perpetuate the Faith, Order, Worship and Witness of Western Catholicism as it existed in the Church of England from around 200 A.D., to the time of the Great Schism, and set forth by the "ancient catholic bishops and doctors," and especially as defined by the Seven Ecumenical Councils of the undivided Church. The Holy Catholic Church Anglican Rite is Catholic, because it accepts the doctrines of the ancient Church, which have been “believed everywhere, always, and by all.”
