Declaration of Principles


As part of our identity, we have a declaration of principles which outline the source of our core beliefs: We do declare that it is our intention that the Anglican Church of Bermuda shall continue to be in spiritual union and communion with the Church of England and the other Churches of the Anglican Communion.


We recognize and accept the canon of Holy Scripture, received by the Church of England, as the rule and standard of our Christian faith; we acknowledge the Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments, and other rites authorized for use in the Church of England, together with the thirty-nine Articles of Religion, as interpreted and accepted by the Church of England, to be a true and faithful declaration of Christian doctrine.


We also maintain, as scriptural and apostolic, the threefold order of the Christian Ministry - Bishops, Priests and Deacons.
