Constitution & Canons (DOMA)
In the Name of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
The Anglican Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic (the Diocese) is composed of Anglicans united by a common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a commitment to the trustworthiness of the Holy Scriptures. As Anglicans, we believe and confess Jesus Christ to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but by Him. — John 14:6.
The Diocese, formed by its constituent Congregations and Missions to be a member of the Anglican Church in North America (the Province), which seeks to be and remain in full communion with all Anglican Churches, Dioceses and Provinces that hold and maintain the Historic Faith, Doctrine, Sacraments and Discipline of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church (the Church), ordains and establishes this Constitution. The purpose of the Diocese is to equip and support the clergy and laity to extend the Kingdom of God through the ministries of the Congregations and Missions in which they serve and worship.
