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
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 His grace.”
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.
