ASK YOURSELF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS...........

ARE YOU A TRADITIONAL ROMAN CATHOLIC, EPISCOPALIAN, LUTHERAN, METHODIST OR CHURCH GOER OF ANY CHRISTIAN DENOMINATION WHO IS DISILLUSIONED BY THE CONFUSION, LACK OF BIBLICAL MORALITY, MODERNISM AND LITURGICAL INNOVATIONS IN YOUR PRESENT DENOMINATION?

ARE YOU CONCERNED AND UNSETTLED BY THE EVER GROWING NUMBER OF PREVIOUSLY CHRIST CENTERED DENOMINATIONS WHO ARE BECOMING VENUES FOR SOCIAL PROGRAMS? CONVERTING THEIR SUNDAY SCHOOL ROOMS INTO DAY CARE CENTERS FOR THEIR LOCAL COMMUNITIES. RENTING OUT SPACE TO ORGANIZATIONS WHO PROMOTE IMMORAL BEHAVIOR AND OTHERWISE HAVE NO REGARD FOR TRADITIONAL FAMILY VALUES OR RESPECT THE TEACHING AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH?

ARE YOU FEELING UNCOMFORTABLE IN ATTENDING WORSHIP SERVICES IN YOUR PRESENT PARISH? ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT WHAT YOU MIGHT HEAR COMING FROM THE PULPIT NEXT SUNDAY? DOES THE LACK OF INTEREST IN THE THINGS OF CHRIST YOU FEEL COMING FROM OTHER MEMBERS CONCERN YOU? ARE YOU BEGINNING TO FEEL LIKE A HYPOCRITE BY YOUR PRESENCE THERE?

ARE YOU FURTHER INTIMIDATED AND FRUSTRATED BY THOSE "WHO SCREAM AT THE TOP OF THEIR LUNGS" TO PROMOTE EVERY ANTI-CHRISTIAN, UN BIBLICAL AND PERVERSE CAUSE? HAVING THE AUDACITY TO BOAST THIS IS SOMEHOW "THE VOICE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT ISSUING A WAKE UP CALL TO THE CHURCH IN THIS AGE"?

ARE YOU A CRADLE OR LONG TIME MEMBER OF A BRANCH OF THE CANTERBURY COMMUNION? ARE YOU DEMORALIZED AND HURT BY ALL THE UNNECESSARY CHANGES AND CONFUSION SHE HAS PUT YOU THROUGH? CAN YOU NO LONGER RECOGNIZE THE CATECHISM, PRAYER BOOK, MORALITY, LITURGY AND MINISTRY OF THE CHURCH YOU PLEDGED YOUR FIDELITY AND LOYALTY TO? ARE YOU DISILLUSIONED BECAUSE SHE HAS SO TURNED AWAY FROM THE GOSPEL AND ABANDONED ALL YOU HOLD DEAR?

DO YOU FEEL ORPHANED BY YOUR OWN CHURCH?

DO NOT FEEL ALONE, GIVE UP HOPE OR ALLOW YOURSELF TO BE SOLD THE BILL OF GOODS; IT IS NO BETTER ELSEWHERE AND ALL CHURCHES TODAY ARE THE SAME!

THE ANGLICAN INDEPENDENT COMMUNION - ORIGINAL PROVINCE FIRMLY STANDS ON THIS PREMISE: THE PEOPLE OF GOD DO NOT NEED TO SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS THAN "THE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH" IN ALL ASPECTS OF THE CHRISTIAN LIFE!

IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO THE ABOVE “EXAMINATION OF CONSCIENCE” CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Reigns as the King of Glory.
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity.
  • We believe in and profess the Nicene Creed.
    In accordance with the Undivided Church we recite the Creed in its original form. We omit the "filioque" clause, regarding it as a papal/non-conformist innovation.
  • We believe in the Sacraments of the Historic Orthodox Catholic Church; Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist, Anointing and Prayers for the Sick, Confession, Matrimony and Holy Orders.
  • We believe that all Holy Orders (Bishops, Priests, Deacons) are open only to those males who meet the high moral and educational requirements set by the Church.
  • We believe and hold Apostolic Succession to be of Divine Right and essential to continue the Sacramental life of the Church.
  • We believe the so-called "orders" of ecclesiastical vagrants rightly termed "episcopi vagantes" to be absolutely null and having no sacramental authority.
  • We believe and accept the doctrines of the Seven Early Church Ecunenical Councils. Especially the doctrinal decrees of the first Four.
  • We believe and appreciate the wisdom and guidance of the Early Church Fathers.
  • We believe in union with the Orthodox Fathers, the "Minister" of Holy Matrimony to be the Priest or Bishop who is the officiant of the Sacrament.  The male and female (to be so joined) do not "marry themselves" and are thus the "subjects" of the Sacrament.
  • We do not perform same-sex marriages nor ordain those males living in immoral lifestyles.
  • We believe that abortion (as well as euthanasia) is the taking of human life.
  • We believe in "One Holy Orthodox, Catholic and Apostolic Church".
  • We believe in the sanctity of marriage and traditional Christian moral values.
  • We believe that family planning is a personal decision between a husband and wife.
  • We believe in the richness of our complete Anglican heritage and Sarum traditions and are a Traditional; Evangelical; Orthodox; Sacramental; Historic; Original; Unchanging and Living Expression of "MATER ORTHODOXA ECCLESIA ANGLICANA".

We welcome all who profess the ancient Creeds, Celebrate public Services in accordance with our Prayer Book and Missal and Rites and uphold the faith of
MATER ORTHODOXA ECCLESIA ANGLICANA.

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US AND RECLAIM THE CHURCH OF OUR FOREFATHERS IN HER ORIGINAL BEAUTY AND SPLENDOUR.
