I 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 affirm the truth that we are saved by grace through faith alone, and not by our works; and that salvation is found in no other name than that of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and Man.

I also accept the Lambeth Quadrilateral, which affirms:

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.
