For 144 years, the Reformed Episcopal Church has remained faithful to the inerrant Word of God, powerfully proclaiming the unchanging Gospel of Jesus Christ and worshipping Him in Spirit and in Truth using the biblical and time-honored Book of Common Prayer.
We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the inerrant Word of God and are the highest authority. We cannot ignore or change the parts we do not like. They are, as St. Paul says, Given by inspiration of God and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
Because the Scriptures are clear on the issue, we do not believe in the ordination of women or homosexuals to the offices of Deacon, Presbyter, or Bishop. We also have a strong moral/ethical stance on abortion and sexual ethics.
It is our desire and will to remain true to the ancient and biblical traditions of worship and polity. We have the understanding that worship is to reflect the holiness of God and not the fancies of the worshipper. As the disciples learned from Christ Himself, we do better to follow their traditions and beliefs rather than the desires and whims of modern society. Therefore, we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the 1940 Hymnal and we offer the time honored services of Morning Prayer and Holy Communion on a weekly Basis.
