Canon Preamble

We are People of God and members of the ecclesial body herein to be referred to as “The Apostles’ Anglican Church” or “AAC” or “Communion”. We recall the words of the second century church father, St. Ignatius of Antioch, when referring to the Church: we are a “communion of communities”.

We are men and women, baptized in Christ. We are laity and ordained. We join together at the messianic call of the Spirit to form the household of faith; to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. His is a Gospel of liberation and justice for the poor, the outcast, the sick, the disabled, the old, the young, and the imprisoned; to offer a refuge in Christ for those who suffer prejudice because of race, color, culture, philosophy, gender, or educational deprivation; to conform our lives to the life and teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ through prayer and study, service, and the celebration of the liturgy and the sacraments of His Church.

We profess our faith in Christ Jesus in the living Catholic Tradition handed to us from the Apostles through many generations. And we stand open to a dialog with those of other Biblically Orthodox traditions.

We hereby affirm this constitution as an instrument of governance and guidance for our ecclesial body and its member communities.

Mission Statement:
We are People of God baptized in Christ and professing our faith in a living Catholic, Orthodox, Apostolic tradition. We are men and women, lay and ordained, joining together as a “communion of
communities” in response to the messianic call of the Spirit to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to work towards liberation and justice for all; to offer a refuge in Christ for those who suffer prejudice and abuse; to stand open to dialog with others so called and, to surrender to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit as He conforms our lives to the life and teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ.
