Reformed Anglicanism: How Do We Differ From the Roman Catholic Church?

From the AMiA website:

  • How do we differ from the Roman Catholic Church?
  • The Anglican Church differs from the Roman Catholic Church in many ways. Chief among them is that the Anglican Church embraces the Reformation of the 16th century and continues, where it is true to itself, to submit all of its teaching and morals to the teaching of Holy Scripture. Further, the Anglican churches are not under the jurisdictional authority of the bishops of Rome, nor do they require celibacy of the clergy.

I might add that true Anglicanism is neither Roman Catholic nor Anglo-Catholic since the 39 Articles of Religion condemns extrabiblical practices of both traditions. But neither should Reformed Anglicanism be so identified with the low or broad church tradition that the Prayer Book is neglected. True Anglican worship is faithful to Holy Scripture and to the ancient liturgies preserved through the Prayer Book services.
