ANGLICAN CHURCH OF MEXICO

As a national church, we are part of a worldwide family called the Anglican Communion .

HOLY, CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH

We are a HOLY CHURCH because the Holy Spirit dwells in it animating, guiding and sustaining it.

We are a CATHOLIC CHURCH because we follow the tradition in our worship, which we have inherited since the time of the Apostles and because our Church is Universal and inclusive, which proclaims the whole faith to all peoples, until the end of time. Christians of all races, languages, cultures, countries and ideas are Anglicans.

We are an APOSTOLIC CHURCH that has kept the Apostolic Succession from Jesus Christ in the ordination of its ministers and has maintained the Doctrine and Worship since the Primitive Church

STRUCTURE

The highest authority of the Anglican Church of Mexico is the General Synod, presided over by the Presiding Bishop, and formed by all the Bishops in active service and by clergy and lay delegates representing all the dioceses.

There is a National Executive Council composed of representatives of the five dioceses, and each of them, in turn, annually celebrates a Diocesan Synod to establish the policy and action of the Church in said jurisdiction.

WHAT DO WE BELIEVE IN?

  • We believe in a Triune God,  God the Almighty Father and in his only Son Jesus Christ our Lord and in the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son and who with them receives the same adoration and glory. And they are not three Gods but only one.

  • We believe in the forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation with our Lord, who lovingly waits for us to return to Him.

  • We believe in the Church that is One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic.

  • We believe that it is our duty to proclaim by example and word the Good News of God in Christ our Lord, and to seek and serve him in all people, loving our neighbor as ourselves, for which we declare ourselves in favor of the peace and justice among all peoples and respect for the dignity of every human being.

  • We therefore believe in the full equality of men and women , so we find no arguments that prevent the ordination of women to the priesthood. That is why our clerics are women or men committed to their pastoral mission.

  • We believe that in the continuation of the Sacrament of the Eucharist or Holy Communion , we are all invited if we approach with a sincere and willing heart. And we celebrate it by sharing bread and wine, that is, each person who goes to communion eats the host or bread and drinks the wine, the Body and Blood of Christ.
