The worship and doctrine of Anglican Christianity are saturated with and anchored in Holy Scripture, grounded in the confession of the Holy Trinity as expressed in the ancient creeds, and rooted in the theology of the Reformation.
A historically and globally expansive tradition, the “formularies” of the Reformation era—the Book of Common Prayer, the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, the Book of Homilies, and the Ordinal—give shape to a communion that prays, professes and proclaims what the prayerbook calls “the comfortable words.”
