The Worldwide Anglican Episcopal Communion is an international faith communion of like-minded believers in Christ Jesus, sharing the rich history and heritage of the Church and exercising the freedom of multi-cultural and spiritual expression.
We are an international Anglican Rite Jurisdiction of the Holy Order of the Apostolic Priesthood that promotes unity in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, consisting of the Anglican Rite. We join in unity together for one purpose, which is our Lord Jesus Christ.
The Worldwide Anglican Episcopal Communion constitutes an international faith society within a world-wide communion of Lay Ministers, Deacons, Priests and Bishops. We are all Disciples of Christ dedicated to be his Apostles to preach and teach the His Gospel, uniting in faith, unity and peace with all who love the Lord and are willing to cross racial and cultural barriers.
The Worldwide Anglican Episcopal Communion encompasses several rites, orders, diocese, societies and jurisdictions. We are an Anglican Jurisdiction of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. We openly accept all who accept and believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and fellowship with those who accept and believe on Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. We join in unity together for one purpose, which is worship and praise our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The World Anglican Episcopal Communion is describes itself as follows:
Apostolic: The WAEC is an Communion of believers in Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ chose twelve men to walk with Him while He was here on earth. These twelve were the first Apostles, who were charged with the care of the Church and the spread of the Gospel.
Liturgical: The WAEC is a Liturgical body. We actively celebrate the Holy Eucharist, also know as the Lord’s Supper, Holy Communion and the Divine Liturgy. The Lord Jesus Christ instituted this sacrament when He gathered His disciples together and broke bread and shared a cup of wine with them. This bread is His body, and the wine is His blood. When we come to the Lord’s Table to partake of this sacrament, we do so in careful examination, and as a humble member of His body. The Holy Eucharist should be observed as often as possible.
Charismatic: The WAEC is a Charismatic body of believers in Christ. We stand on the Holy Scriptures alone as our rule of faith and practice, understanding that the Holy Spirit moves, equips, bestows spiritual gifts and empowers us, just as the believers of 2000 years ago.
The Worldwide Anglican Episcopal Communion affirms that it accepts the following:
Ten Commandments in common usage)
The Nicene Creed
We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of the Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, Very God of Very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father by whom all things were made; who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the Virgin Mary, and was made man, and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried, and the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures, and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father. And he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead, whose kingdom shall have no end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life, who proceedeth from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And we believe one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And we look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen.
The Apostles' Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary: Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead: He ascended into heaven, And seated on the right hand of God the Father Almighty: From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost: The holy Catholic Church; The Communion of Saints: The forgiveness of sins: The Resurrection of the body: And the Life everlasting. AMEN.
