We are a consortium of Anglican evangelicals who hold to the Protestant and Reformed confession of the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion.

We cooperate because of our shared beliefs, though we belong to a variety of denominations. We may have different viewpoints on non-essential matters, but we are united on primary doctrines. No doubt, our differences will be visible in some of our writings; however, our desire is to emphasize what we hold in common. Therefore, we do not engage in needless provocation, but we collaborate in this forum to glorify Christ and edify the church. We may occasionally address differences in our viewpoints, but we will do so respectfully.

… the Bible, the Articles, and the principles of the Protestant Reformation …

J. C. Ryle in Holiness

Remaining faithful to the Reformed confession of the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion sometimes means we have more in common with other confessional Protestants than with other Anglicans. Though our content is primarily focused on Anglican viewpoints, we also include other valuable Protestant and Reformed materials.

We affirm that …

  • Anglicanism is biblical, Protestant, Reformed, confessional, and evangelical.
  • The Articles of Religion (1571) is the confessional statement of Anglicanism.
  • The Book of Common Prayer (1552/1662) is the liturgical standard of Anglicanism.
  • Confessional Anglicans are free to associate with like-minded Christians of other Protestant and Reformed traditions.

We do not endorse the content of every website, article, or other resource mentioned on this site. Occasionally, writers who disagree with our affirmations may be invited to provide opposing views. Similarly, readers from a variety of backgrounds are not excluded from this site because of their disagreement with our confessional affirmations.
