Our Core Beliefs

Commitment to Jesus Christ

The Anglican Church of North America (ACNA) believes that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone, Who is the only begotten Son of the Living God. Through Him, all who come to Him by faith and repent of their sins, receive forgiveness through Christ's death on the Cross and live in newness of  life through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit. This new life of faith is to be marked by a joyful obedience to Jesus Christ, to God's Word and to the leading of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 16:15-16; Ephesians 2:4-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 5:22-25).

Authority of Scripture

The ACNA believes that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their entirety is God's Word, and is the standard by which we are to order our lives, express our faith and function as a community (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Evangelism

The ACNA believes that we are to live our lives, to make disciples and to grow our churches in a manner that expresses the loving and longing heart of God for those who are separated from Jesus Christ and His Church (Matthew 9:12-13; Luke 15; I Timothy 4:1-5).

Relational Ministry

The ACNA is committed to ministry being accomplished in relationships which express the love, intimacy, and unity of God as revealed in the relationship of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The ACNA is committed to holding ourselves accountable before God and to one another within our Anglican polity. (John 13:34; 1 John 4:11-21).

Worship

The ACNA is committed to worship in Word and Sacrament, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Our worship is to be authentic and relevant to our cultural setting while remaining within the breadth of our Anglican Tradition (John 4:23-24; I Corinthians 11:23-26; Acts 17:22-24).

Servant Ministry

The ACNA believes that every Christian is created for ministry, gifted for ministry and needed for ministry. We are, therefore, committed to equip, empower and release the faithful to use their spiritual gifts to glorify God and to build up the Body of Christ (Romans 12; I Corinthians 12-13).

Sacrificial Giving

The ACNA believes that we are to be generous with our time, talents and money as we share with those in need, support the work of God among us, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ (I John 3:17-18; Ezra 2:68-69; Acts 2:44-47).

Biblical Leadership

The ACNA is committed to identifying and training emerging leaders who are committed to Christ and to reaching their generation with the Gospel. This will require of those seeking leadership in the ACNA an authentic faith, Godly character, and a servant's heart (Luke 22:27; Romans 12; I Corinthians 12-13).

Expectant Prayer

The ACNA believes that nothing of significance happens in God's Kingdom in the absence of prayer. Therefore, we seek to make prayer a priority, inviting God to lead, restore, heal, and transform our lives, our churches, our communities, and the world (John 14:15-31; Luke 11:1-13)
