The Christian faith spread very quickly to the British Isles after the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the faith delivered there in those first days is the faith of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church.  Anglicans are Christians whose life is in Christ in accordance with scripture and the tradition of Christianity in England.  Anglicans are neither Protestant, nor Roman Catholic, though the Anglican Communion is structured by the orders of laity, deacons, priests, and bishops.  Anglicans simply seek to follow Christ and to worship and pray in a way that is rooted in the ancient church.  To be Anglican is to be merely Christian.

An Anglican follower of Christ is:

Orthodox in Belief
Catholic in Ritual
Monastic in Prayer
Evangelical (in the good sense) in Mission
Sacrificial in Servanthood
Cheerful in Giving
Connected in Community
