The Orthodox Anglican Church Believes
- The Bible is God’s Word Written. The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired, and contain all things necessary to salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
- The Sacraments of the Church are God’s Word in action. The Dominical Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion are ordained by our Lord Jesus Christ for all Christians.
- The written Word and the holy Sacraments are joined together and rightly proclaimed in the classic editions of The Book of Common Prayer. (Editions 1662, 1928 – US, 1929 – Scottish, and 1962 – Canadian)
- The Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds are to be taught in the Church and to be received by the Faithful.
- Christian Marriage is a Sacred bond between a man and a woman.
- The Ordained Ministry of the Church is reserved to godly men.

The Orthodox Anglican Communion
- The Orthodox Anglican Communion practices an ancient Way of Faith instituted by Jesus Christ, through the Holy Apostles, and brought to England in the earliest days of the Church
- The Orthodox Anglican Communion has restored the original traditions of the Church of England, the Mother Church of the English-speaking people.
- The Orthodox Anglican Communion has re-instituted the original vision of the Anglican Reformation: a return to the doctrine and practices of the Early Christian Church, without Roman additions or Protestant subtractions
- The Orthodox Anglican Communion is the Orthodox Church of the West.
- The Orthodox Anglican Communion is not led into error or heresy by political and social trends: only godly men are ordained to Holy Orders and marriage is affirmed as a sacred bond between a man and a woman.
The Orthodox Anglican Communion was established in 1967 to provide a haven for the thousands around the world who seek the OLD PATHS of the Holy Church. The Communion is a spiritual fellowship of Orthodox Anglican clergy, churches, and laity that uphold the Faith “once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 3). Each Bishop, minister, church, or layperson who joins, or enters fellowship with, the Communion vows his allegiance to Christ our Lord as the Divine Son of God, and particularly affirms his belief that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, divinely inspired, and containing all things necessary to salvation. Each affirms his belief in the Apostles’ and Nicene Creeds. Each solemnly engages to conform to the doctrine, discipline, and worship of the classics Anglican formularies as contained especially in the 1662 English, 1928 American, 1928 Scottish, and 1962 Canadian Books of Common Prayer.
