Built upon the foundation of the authoritative Word of God, the Holy
Scriptures, the Reformed Episcopal Church sets her highest priority on
Biblical worship, and declares her commitment to the work of
evangelism, the bold and unadulterated proclamation of salvation by
grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 8:4). In keeping the
faith once delivered to the saints, the Reformed Episcopal Church,
however, does not believe evangelism to be the end, but rather the
beginning of her divinely given vocation. Thus, she is deeply committed to
discipleship, the work of training evangelized men and women in
Christian living (St. Matthews 28:20). This inescapably means that the
Reformed Episcopal Church sets her highest priority on biblical worship.
When the gospel is truly proclaimed and the mercies of God are made
known, redeemed men and women must be led to offer their bodies as a
living sacrifice, which is their spiritual service of worship (Romans 12:1).
Thus, the Reformed Episcopal Church understands the Christian life to be
necessarily corporate. The Gospel call of salvation is not only to a Savior
but also to a visible communion of those who have been saved (1 Cor.
12:27), which communion, being indwelt by Christ’s Spirit, transcends
both temporal and geographic bounds.
Therefore, the Reformed Episcopal Church is creedal, following the
historic Christian faith as it was affirmed by the early undivided Church in
the Apostles’ (A.D. 150) and Nicene Creed (A.D. 325), sacramental,
practicing the divinely ordained sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s
Supper as outward and visible signs of His inward and spiritual grace,
confessional, accepting the doctrines and practices on the English
Reformation as found in the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, and
Episcopal, finding unity with the Church of the earliest Christian eras
through submission to the government of godly Bishops.
In this fashion, by embracing the broad base of doctrine and practice
inherent in the historic Church of the Reformation, the Reformed
Episcopal Church has a foundation for effective ministry in the name of
Christ to a world which is lost and dying without Him.
