I firmly embrace the Apostles' and Nicene Creeds according to the common consensus of the church; that is, as the church has always understood them. I also accept the necessity of the Reformation, and the good it did bringing Christians back to the primacy of Sacred Scripture and to a biblical theology and practice of the Faith.

I also accept the Lambeth Quadrilateral:

1. Acceptance of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as the revealed Word of God, containing all things necessary to salvation, and being the rule and ultimate standard of faith;

2. Acceptance of the Nicene Creed as the “Symbol of the Faith,” and the Apostles’ Creed as the Baptismal confession. 

3. Acceptance of two Sacraments, that of Baptism and Holy Communion—being ordained by Christ Himself—ministered with unfailing use of Christ’s words of institution and of the elements ordained by Him; and,

4. Acceptance of the Historic Episcopate as essential to the ministry of Christ’s Church, adapted locally to the varying needs of the people of God around the world.
