Our Beliefs

tac_seal_smallWe are Biblical and Sacramental; that is, centered in prayer and worship. We desire, as our Baptismal commitment says, to “follow Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.” We believe that our present bishops have their authority delegated to them by the Laying on of Hands reaching back to the Apostles. We practice regular participation in Holy Communion. Jesus at the Last Supper instituted this Sacrament when He broke bread and drank wine with His disciples, exhorting them to do the same in remembrance of Him. As Queen Elizabeth 1 said “We hold a faith not our own”. That is, it’s not ours to change. Every Christian stands on the shoulders of all who have gone before. As the Scripture says, “…built on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone”.
