What kind of Anglican are you?

We’re using the term *Anglo-Orthodox* in that the English Church was, is, and ought to be in continuity with the Patristic tradition of the Scriptures as they have been read by the undivided Church.

St. Paul teaches in his Epistle to the Church at Ephesus: “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”

This one body is undivided and such is the Church. Christ comes to find a glorious bride without “spot or wrinkle.”

*Anglo-Orthodoxy* is about capturing this divine vision and embracing the goals of the ancient, patristic Church. It is about the light of Christ entering into this world and all of humanity. It is about the Gospel penetrating our humanity and lifting us up toward His very Divinity through the Incarnational life of Sacramental grace.

As Anglican Divine Bl. Lancelot Andrewes put it, the mission of Anglo-Orthodoxy is embracing this one reality:

“He in Mount Golgotha like to us, that we in Mount Tabor like to Him.”(Easter Sermon at Whitehall, 1623)
