The Anglican Diocese of the Living Word is a diocese of the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) and a member diocese of the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON).
The Anglican Diocese of the Living Word is comprised of Christians united by a common faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a commitment to the trustworthiness and authority of the inerrant Holy Scriptures. As Anglicans, we believe and confess Jesus Christ to be the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that no one comes to the Father but by Him, and are fervent in our proclamation of this Gospel.
ADLW receives and affirms the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) Statement and the Jerusalem Declaration of June 29, 2008; and we acknowledge the Fundamental Declarations of the Anglican Church in North America, the Province, as set forth in Article I of the Provincial Constitution.
The Thirty-nine Articles of Religion (published in 1571) in all and every Article therein contained, the Book of Common Prayer (the version of 1662), and the Form and Manner of Making, Ordaining, and Consecrating of Bishops, Priests, and Deacons, annexed to The Book of Common Prayer of 1662, commonly known as the Ordinal—these texts being read according to their plain and historical sense and being accepted as faithful expressions of the teaching of Scripture—provide the standard for Anglican theology and practice.
