The Church of the Ascension is a parish of the
Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic States of the Anglican
Catholic Church. The Anglican Catholic Church is a
branch of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic
Church, instituted by Jesus Christ, faithfully
continuing the Anglican tradition. We uphold the
historic Catholic Faith, Apostolic Order and
Evangelical Witness as set forth in the traditional Book
of Common Prayer. We accept as binding the received
Faith and Traditions of the Church, and its teachings.
These include the historic, threefold male Apostolic
ministry of bishop, priest and deacon, as set forth in
Holy Scripture; the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian
Creeds; and the writings of the bishops and doctors of
the Ancient Church, especially as defined by the Seven
Ecumenical Councils of the Undivided Church. As
sons and daughters of the Church of England, our
religious heritage reaches back to the earliest days of
Christianity in England and beyond that to our Lords
commission to the Apostles to “go into all the world
and preach the Gospel.” The Anglican Faith is
thoroughly grounded in Holy Scripture.
Anglican Catholics accept “the Holy Scriptures of the
Old and New Testaments as the authentic record of
Gods revelation of Himself, His saving activity, and
moral demands ... a revelation for all men and for all
time.” On Christian morality, we believe that “every
Christian is obliged to form his conscience by the
Divine Moral Law and the Mind of Christ as revealed
in Holy Scriptures, and by the teachings and Traditions
of the Church.” We believe that the Sacraments are
“objective and effective signs of the continued
presence and saving activity of Christ our Lord among
His people and His covenanted means for conveying
There are Seven Sacraments: Baptism, Holy
Communion, Confirmation, Penance, Unction,
Marriage and Holy Orders. The Anglican Catholic
Church uses the historic Book of Common Prayer
(1928 Edition). This book represents one of the finest
collections of Christian wisdom and devotion, more
than 75 percent of it is taken directly from Holy
Scriptures. Anglican Catholics take seriously our
Lords call to ALL Christians to serve Him, not only in
the Christian community, but in the world.
