Affirming Catholicism is a movement in the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion called to witness to the generosity of the Reign of God being made present in our midst through the riches of the catholic tradition in our Church. We believe that God has spoken, is speaking and will continue to speak to the assembled body of Christ in scripture, sacrament, prayer and human experience.
The world-wide Anglican Communion has more members than it has ever had. But as it grows it is inevitably changing – with over 70 million members in 164 countries organized into 38 self-governing churches and 500 dioceses. The Holy Spirit impels us in each generation to realize afresh the fullness of God’s Reign. For Anglicans, discerning the Spirit involves being attentive to difference as we seek to respond to the same gospel in very different cultures.
Such a dynamic understanding of God’s revelation in Jesus Christ implies development and change. Affirming Catholics profess that the church is being called to demonstrate a more progressive approach in relation to issues of social justice, the environment, gender and sexuality. But new approaches must stand in the light of gospel truth and the catholic tradition as we have received it.
